Christina & Matt: Hawthorne Hotel Wedding



Ohhhhhhhh…my Christina and Matt! I am almost to the end of sharing my 2016 weddings with you guys and I love that I am close to closing our this spectacular season with these two pretty awesome people.  My couples all brought it this year. I attended some of the best weddings I’ve ever been to, shot some of my best work and I worked with some people who made their way into my heart and will stay there forever.  I’m the luckiest girl that year after year people trust me to capture their wedding days and this year was one of my favorites. I met some new videographers and wedding planners who made my job infinitely better than it would have been if they were not there. I got to work another year with my shooter and friend Matt Wood by my side and for him I will be forever grateful.It’s a pretty good gig that I have and I don’t take it for granted.

I am SO grateful that Christina and Matt found their way into my life.  I got to experience and new city because of them and I got to be with them when they said “I do.”  They are more special to me than they know. There is a part of me that is genuinely sad that the wedding is over because it means that our correspondence will slow down. It won’t end..I won’t let it, but I can definitely say that I am feeling a little of the post wedding depression when it comes to these two.

They had their Gatsby themed wedding at the Hawthorne Hotel in early December.  Christina had a vision for her day and she completely nailed it.  This girl looked like she was plucked straight out of the Fitzgerald novel and placed directly in front of my camera for my shooting pleasure.

And she can rock hair jewelry like no other. 2017-01-10_0012 2017-01-10_0013 2017-01-10_0014Like…could you be any more beautiful, lady? No? I didn’t think so. 2017-01-10_0015 2017-01-10_0016 2017-01-10_0017Handsome Matt. Always on point. 2017-01-10_0018C’monnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.  2017-01-10_0019Christina’s little apple does not fall far from her parents tree. Two of the most lovely people I have met through a wedding. 2017-01-10_0020Downside of a December wedding= it’s freaking COLD. Upside of a December wedding=all of the pretty lights that we can shoot with which makes being on the verge of frostbite worth it.
2017-01-10_0021Girlfriend is the size of Thumbelina and was therefore frozen solid in about 3 minutes.  She was such a trooper and I love her even more for it. 2017-01-10_0022 2017-01-10_0023 2017-01-10_0024 2017-01-10_0025Matt’s reaction was the best. 2017-01-10_0026 2017-01-10_0027 2017-01-10_0028 2017-01-10_0031 2017-01-10_0030 2017-01-10_0029 2017-01-10_0032 2017-01-10_0033 2017-01-10_0034 2017-01-10_0035 2017-01-10_0036 2017-01-10_0037 2017-01-10_0038 2017-01-10_0039 2017-01-10_0040 2017-01-10_0041 2017-01-10_0042 2017-01-10_0043I absolutely love this shot of Matt stopping traffic for his bride. 2017-01-10_0044 2017-01-10_0045 2017-01-10_0046 2017-01-10_0047 2017-01-10_0048 2017-01-10_0049 2017-01-10_0050 2017-01-10_0051 2017-01-10_0052 2017-01-10_0053 2017-01-10_0054 2017-01-10_0055 2017-01-10_0056 2017-01-10_0057 2017-01-10_0058 2017-01-10_0059 2017-01-10_0060 2017-01-10_0061 2017-01-10_0062 2017-01-10_0063 2017-01-10_0064 2017-01-10_0065 2017-01-10_0066 2017-01-10_0067 2017-01-10_0068 2017-01-10_0069 2017-01-10_0070 2017-01-10_0071 2017-01-10_0072 2017-01-10_0073 2017-01-10_0074 2017-01-10_0075 2017-01-10_0076 2017-01-10_0077 2017-01-10_0078 2017-01-10_0079 2017-01-10_0080 2017-01-10_0081 2017-01-10_0082 2017-01-10_0083 2017-01-10_0084 2017-01-10_0085 2017-01-10_0086 2017-01-10_0087 2017-01-10_0088 2017-01-10_0089 2017-01-10_0090 2017-01-10_0091 2017-01-10_0092 2017-01-10_0093 2017-01-10_0094 2017-01-10_0095 2017-01-10_0096 2017-01-10_0097 2017-01-10_0098 2017-01-10_0099 2017-01-10_0101 2017-01-10_0102 2017-01-10_0103 2017-01-10_0104I want to adopt them. 2017-01-10_0105 2017-01-10_0106 2017-01-10_0107 2017-01-10_0108 2017-01-10_0109 2017-01-10_0110 2017-01-10_0111 2017-01-10_0112 2017-01-10_0113 2017-01-10_0114There is my Fasha and Mike in front of the red tree.
