Mike and Amy celebrated their incredible wedding weekend this May in West Tisbury, on the island of Martha’s Vineyard!
I joined the family at their parent’s home for an amazingly heartfelt rehearsal dinner evening Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. There were so many toasts, so much laughter, and definitely a few tears. The morning of their wedding day, Amy and her sisters invited me to join at the house for a private yoga class at 7am… no camera (ok, just one photo!), just breathing in the air of a new day, surrounding our bride with beautiful energy. No better way to start such a momentous day!
The weekend weather was stormy, dramatic, charged and invigorating. The sun came out at Flat Point Farm just in time, and the wind continued to fluff our spirits (read: blow away all the Rabbi’s papers!). More importantly, there was so much love in the air! Mike and Amy have a brief and absolutely gah-gah courtship behind them – love like this just hits you hard! They were so sweet to watch as they savored the day together, and they shared a huge love for their families and friends as well. EVERYONE was so, so happy.
Congratulations, Mike & Amy!
The wind and rain of the day before had cleared, and this sweet dock found its way above water just in time for their first-look :-)
Flowers, flowers, flowers… it doesn’t get much more amazing than Becca from Petal Floral Design, except for when she’s also sister to the groom! It was such an honor to share this day with her as well!
Rabbi Mark was a fantastic addition to the weekend – so hilarious, and so welcoming of all into the Jewish traditions.
The winds swept up and carried Rabbi Mark’s papers into the air, just as the ceremony began! Their family on either side held onto the chuppah for safe keeping.
Sisters! Such a gorgeous combination of colors! (psst, I already bought myself the lipstick Amy’s wearing :-))
More incredible touches by the lovely Becca…
One of the best first-dances I’ve ever seen! Their song – Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” – was sung by brother-in-law (Becca’s husband), Mike – just perfect!
Paying homage to Mike’s Philly routes, cheese-steaks were served at the end of the evening!
Mike & Amy, what can I say… You guys welcomed me in with huge squeezy hugs, and it has been wonderful sharing in your planning as both your photographer and friend. You created the kind of
day weekend that makes us “vendors” cry too. I am so incredibly grateful to have been a part of it. Your love is what it’s all about… I wish you a beautiful life ahead!
