Sonia and Dario's wedding was laid-back, meaningful and beautiful - much like Sonia and Dario are.  I'm completely in love with Sonia's childhood church, St. Alphonsus. It is such a gorgeous cathedral. I also had a piece of their cake, which was the best I've ever had.  Almond flavored with chocolate chips then brushed with apricot filling and buttercream frosting with chocolate ganache. OMG!!!

There's something about Sonia and Dario's relationship that moves me.  They've been together for a long time and initially thought that marriage wasn't for them.  But just like my own husband, they finally got to that place where they knew it was right.  During the ceremony, Dario brimmed with emotion during his vows. Let me tell ya, there wasn't a dry eye in the church as he spoke through tears.

Sonia and Dario, thank you for allowing me to be part of your momentous day.

When I photographed Kara and Tradd's engagement session with their little pup, Gunther, last year, I never envisioned I would be where I am today. Not only did I get to see Gunther again in his wedding finery on their wedding day while now a full-time wedding photographer, but I am soon to photograph Kara's friend and now my vet, Sarah's wedding later this month.  This job has enabled me to meet some fantastic people!

In addition to having the coolest names ever, Kara and Tradd, are such kind people who you love to hang out with.  And I love their families and friends! The wedding went off without a hitch, largely in part to Kara's mad organizing skills, but also because the Allegro Hotel knows how to host a great event. It was such a wonderful day.
