Matt and Tammy Part II – Pure Joy

Ok – here we go – we are going to wrap up this fab day! 
The sun shined, people mingled, and everyone cheered and celebrated Matt and Tammy. 
On this day – a new family emerged. I love it! I’m so happy for you all!
The venue was gorgeous!
And its couldn’t have been a more beautiful day!

Then it was ceremony time. 

I loved this! 
Walked down by her sons 
Greeted by her super attentive, soon to be husband! 

Mr. and Mrs. Messina

As a child of a blended family myself, I totally get what a big deal it is for your mom to get remarried. 
And on this day, this new family’s love for each other was oozing! 
Such a joy for me to capture. 
And Sydney, don’t worry – no crying pictures showed up here (wink wink). 
But honestly, your emotion and that of your brothers just warmed my heart all day long! 

Hooray – formal pictures are over – let the party begin!

Honestly – it couldn’t have been a prettier day!
The wind did start to whip – but that made no difference in the fun factor!
I think some of the BEST candid pictures come during the toasts.
Not just the pictures of the bride and groom.
But the images of their friends and family feeling the love, holding their special people tighter
 and feeling just pure happiness for the couple! 
I love these shots! 
They pretty much sum up the joy of the day! 

The evening held so much fun for these two. 
Great memories for sure! 
And I have to highlight the amazing 15 year old who sang to her mom in front of EVERYONE not once but TWICE!
You rocked it!
And you made me cry!

And Matt
That cake…..
Made by the groom I might add!

I’ve never seen so many people on the dance floor at a reception! 
What a party! 

Matt and Tammy – this was a fabulous, family focused, love-filled, joyful day!

Thanks again for asking me to capture these memories!

I enjoyed every second.

Cheers to you both!
