Emily and Tony are full of surprises and so in love. I had a ton of fun being part of their amazing wedding.
One of my all time favorite moments was when Tony realized Emily surprised him by having the theme to Jurassic Park be the processional music.
I love that Emily worked this in for Tony.
Emily made sure to let me in on the secret so I'd know to wait for his response.
Plus, JP is my favorite movie so I was almost as excited as Tony.
I love when grooms adjust their wedding bands after the ring exchange. Getting used to something that will soon feel second nature on his finger.
Throughout the day Emily and Tony took time to check in with each other and make sure they enjoyed their big day. Love!
I love taking a minute to grab a photo with the sibs!
I LOVED this bridal party's attire. Unique yet timeless.
This is my favorite photo of Emily. Her eyes are gorgeous and she's looking so content in Tony's arms.
Thank you Emily & Tony for trusting me and inviting me to capture this gorgeous day! You guys rock and I know your life together will be a blast!

What was the most memorable part?
Emily: First one was walking down the aisle with my Dad seeing how handsome Tony looked! Second was walking into the barn at Mapleside before the reception and just amazed at the transformation!
Tony: The surprise song when the bridal party walked down the aisle - Jurassic Park theme! Emily know's that is my favorite movie and she totally caught me off guard when she had that playing - absolutely loved that and obviously her walking down the aisle :)
Any advice for future brides/grooms?
Enjoy every minute of the day and don't sweat the small stuff! The day is going to fly by and before you know it you'll be back from your honeymoon and it will all be over...so soak it all in and have fun! If something isn't right, 95% chance no one will notice but you so don't worry about it and just enjoy the moment and being surrounded by family & friends.
Any photo-specific advice?
Be in the moment and have fun when taking the pictures! We're much more of a candid / funny couple so even when we tried serious pictures we probably failed...haha. Kristine is fabulous too so treat her nicely!!!
Most hilarious moment?
The party bus after the wedding...won't go into details but some dancing occurred with the bridal party that was hilarious!!!
What was the best thing you did for yourselves the day of?
Hired a day of wedding coordinator so we could just enjoy the day and not worry about getting the venue ready.
Where did you honeymoon?
Hawaii! Maui & Kauai - both were beautiful but our favorite island was Kauai. Known as the Garden Island...every kind of plant life is on that island and it isn't as developed so we felt far away from everything which was great after the craziness of a wedding :)
