It is very rare that a wedding with no planner or day-of coordinator runs as smoothly as Cara & Keith’s day did. I was VERY impressed by Cara’s organization and spreadsheets leading up to the day, and it was great to see her just relax and enjoy the day as much as she did. This is why I tell all my brides to at least hire a day-of coordinator so you don’t have to sweat the small stuff. But there was literally NO sweating here! We planned a first look session which was adorable, I LOVE that moment and the look on the groom’s face when he can hear his bride coming and he’s about to see her! And it was great to have the entire property at the Crosley to ourselves for the bride & groom portraits. And I promise, the first look did nothing to diminish the emotion when Cara & her father first stepped onto the aisle. Cara & Keith found me through her sister Veronica Pastore (an extremely talented writer/model/PR expert who I’ve worked with on many projects), so it was an honor to document this gorgeous day for a friend & her family (and I love that eye contact moment when she’s getting her dress on!). Congrats Mister and Misses!
