Ritz Carlton Coconut Grove Wedding



Marriage is about love and a new beginning. The opening chapter to a life of adventure, challenges and the rewards of living a life with the love of our life. Before every newly married couple is a book yet to be filled with the story of two lives brought together. What their story is nobody knows ~ but with every anniversary, every child born, vacations taken and the ups and downs of life,  this book will develop into a marvelous story of lives lived.

For us as photographers we realize that we are illustrating this wonderful new beginning. As years pass, the images will take on a life of their own with children and grandchildren marveling with joy at seeing Mom in her wedding dress and Dad with such emotion as he married their Mother. The photos will provide an anchor to the joy, respect and love that their parents feel for each other and the love they feel for those around them.

They’ll see in the image below, their great grandmothers sharing in the joy of being witness to another chapter in their lives beginning as their grandchildren begin theirs.

Generations will understand the beginning of their marriage is anchored in love for God and their Jewish faith. The caress of Rabbi Bookman’s blessings ~ prayers ~ a foundation of strength to begin their lives together.

Just married and the exuberant expressions of “just married” across their faces says so much.

The excitement and beauty of a Bride as she is raised during a Hora with her beloved ~ in  a sense spiritually supported by the community of family and friends ~ a moment truly shared between them a she looks into his eyes with pure joy!

The moment that 2011 ended and 2012 began and I am reminded of the New Years Eve scene in “When Harry Met Sally”  “And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” Harry Burns ~When Harry Met Sally”

5,4,3,2,1 Happy New Years!!!! This moment is so indicative of the celebration that we experienced that night. Carefully look at this image ~ it’s so tells the story!
