Josh and Emily: Moon Dancer Vineyard Wedding

Jun 1, 2016

Josh and Emily’s wedding day was nothing short of perfection.
From spending just one day with them I could tell that not only did they absolutely adore and love each other, but they loved their family and friends so well. The day was focused on relationships, and friendships, and every single one of their guests was beyond thrilled for the two of them. I wish the pictures could show you just how loved this couple is; every where you looked there were people elated that this day was finally here. Nothing, including the rain, was going to stop them from having the time of their lives. I just wanted to bottle up the joy, and take it home with me.
And then the music. Let me tell you about the music.
For those of you that don’t know the Marini family, they are some of the most talented individuals I know, so I just knew the music was going to be beyond amazing.
But never in my entire life have I heard something so beautiful. If there is any chance that we could have a glimpse of what heaven must sound like, this was it.
They had twenty-something of their friends who happen to be some of the most talented musicians in the county perform their prelude, processional, and recessional; and I assure you, there wasn’t a guest that wasn’t wowed. It was too beautiful for words.
This is a day that I will always treasure, and we couldn’t be more thrilled for these two and their families.

Ahh. I could have listened to tell all day. DSC_1637DSC_1591DSC_1671DSC_1740Josh’s family is Jewish, so they incorporated a few of the Jewish traditions into their ceremony.
