I am a very lucky person. I have amazing clients who flew me all over the world, but what’s more I have amazing friends too who flew me all over the world for their weddings too. I met Orsi while I was in university in Hungary, it seems like it was a lifetime ago, it feels like it was yesterday. You know those friends who live so far away, those you don’t get to talk to as much as you’d like too, but whenever you manage to be in the same city you’re so excited to catch up?! She’s one of those friends and it has been my upmost pleasure to see her blossom and become the happiest woman by the side of Anthony, her MBA sweetheart.
They fell in love in Michigan & then moved west to San Francisco… they planned one of the most perfect weddings I’ve ever had the pleasure to photograph. I mean, Pageo Lavender Farm is just a dream location to start with, but then Orsi’s Vera Wang dress simply took my breath away, so did the grey-yellow movie themed set up of the whole event. Every single detail was just perfect, from the truck to the flowers, to the games…. IT WAS HOT, I mean California desert in June is no joke… both boy these two would have been sizzling in the middle of a snow storm as well…but all the prettiness, the emotional speeches and the coolest dances aside, my favourite part was their “first look without looking”.
Ladies & gents…. it was everything!!! Orsi & Anthony decided to write letters to each other about how they felt, what the past years have meant and what do they hope for their future… then we carefully arranged that they could read their letters to each other without seeing each other in the convenient cover of a barn door. Holy GUACAMOLE!!!! I was crying so much, they were laugh-crying so much, it was one of my favourite moments of the entire wedding season of 2015. And after hearing the beautiful words moments before tying the knot imagine how they felt not being able to see each other… a little hand holding was allowed, but that’s it… then it was time for their story to begin….
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU a million times per guys for letting me document such intimate and once in a lifetime moments of your story. I’ll never forget it.
