Two different perspective of the same portrait, the first by Anne…

And the second by Bill. Behold the power of f/1.2. Can everyone say bokeh? Go ahead, say it with me.

We love Hotel Monaco’s logo. So fitting.

Deb & Marc, whose wedding Bill shot waaaayyyy back in 2006!

Even their adorable cats made a virtual appearance later in the evening!

We love that not having a glass in-hand didn’t stop their niece from giving it her all during a toast.

We had more kids with SLRs at this wedding than at any other. Seriously. And I’m pretty sure they came up with some darn good stuff.

Dear c&e,

The two of you epitomize the meaning of family and of generosity. When we walked with you into Hotel Monaco’s lobby on your wedding day to your family members spontaneously standing and cheering for you, we knew we were in for a fun-loving evening. And yes, while perhaps it seemed like utter torture for the littlest of your party to stand for a brief portrait, the terror didn’t last too long and we’re pretty sure we caught a few of them having a rather rollicking good time later in the evening. They were all so happy for you both and we don’t think we’ve ever seen so many little shutterbugs! Too cute.

You were so gentle with each other that day, simply letting everything wash over you and just going with the flow. We don’t recall a more sublimely relaxed couple in recent memory and if there was any stress that day, simply being around you was enough to wash it away. Ed. Seriously. You rocked it by arriving for your own wedding in your sweet, shiny black Alfa. And Caren, the look on your face when your girl friends surprised you with that Chorus Line song and dance routine of Singular Sensation all lined up across the width of the dance floor, well, that it just made our night to see that huge smile on your face. And how could one forget the empty cans of Whiskers cat food tied with twine to the door knob to your honeymoon suite, a nod to your two adorable cats?

We’re so grateful to you for the opportunity to capture those tiny little moments you shared with your parents and with each other. Oh, and that coffee! It’s good to have friends like yours. Your friend is a master roaster and we were sorry to have already gone through all of those beans. It’s been a tasty way to start the morning of late. So thank you for making us feel so welcome, and part of your vast and kind family. We felt right at home.

xoxoxo,
a&b
