Christine and Marc: Getting Ready

It didn’t take long after meeting Christine and Marc to figure out that they are a fun couple.  In fact, their social life was probably the only “problem” during their wedding planning: they were always busy!

All joking aside, we had so much fun planning this wedding.  Christine and Marc really put a lot of thought into their wedding.  They combined many traditions (Christine is Catholic and Marc is Jewish) to create a distinctive wedding.

Can I tell you how much I adore this gown? 

It’s the fun details that make the day.  Christine in her Bride robe.

Can we say gorgeous?  I love the lushness of these flowers!

The finishing touches before the first look!

Having someone else put on your shoes always causes a few laughs!

The gents.

Christine heading out to the First Look.  (And, can I tell you that Christine looks like this almost every time I see her?  Christine is truly radiant!)  PS.  Do you see the flash of color on her fabulous shoes?

All tulle and silk.



I think everyone should do a First Look.  Seriously, take a look at these photos.


It’s so nice to have a few minutes alone in the middle of such a meaningful day.


…but it doesn’t last long!




After the first look, the bridal party went out to take photos around the city.








There will be a second post tomorrow of Christine and Marc’s ceremony and reception.
