    Fantastic! There is just so much joy coming off these pictures! And the shoes – I want all of those shoes!

  • Tammy

    I was lucky enough to attend this wedding. Yes, the bride’s smile always lights up the room, and her laugh is infectious! The groom is amazing! It was a night full of love, laughter, and fabulous people! Love you Eric and Sam! We are so lucky to have you in our ” family”!

    • Ceebee

      I always look at the bride’s smiles/laughs and the groom’s laughs/tears, and their body language that says “I’m so proud to have you and we’re (and everybody’s) having so much fun!” in weddings. Those are my favorite parts in wedding/wedding pictures.

    • Nury

      Tammy, I couldn’t have said it better. Sam and Eric are awesome and their wedding was fabulous. They put so much thought and personality into everything and it showed. Love these photos, they take me back to their amazing day!

  • Sam

    Thanks everyone! I was so happy because it was quite frankly the best day ever, just because I was marrying my best friend and all of our family and friends from every part of our life was there with us. I will find any excuse to wear that dress and those shoes again.

    • Those shoes are just BE-YOND!! Tots fab.

      And you just radiant joy. Congratulations!!

  • Those shoes! I’m in love.

  • Love those Kate Spades. I want them, so much. Alas, I would fall and twist an ankle if I tried to wear shoes that high.

  • Moe

    I love the shot of the shoes!!! Also, as a follower of the many wedding blogs….I enjoy seeing brides of color and interracial couples, wish there was more of that. :)

  • well I just love everything about this wedding. awesome soundtrack too!

    at first I was confused by the picture of silversun pickups concert tickets – and then I clicked on the photo and realized those were your ESCORT CARDS and I am a little bit in love with you guys.

  • You are rocking that dress! I love it! And you guys look so happy – congratulations!!

  • Oh wow, what fabulous shoes. And such a nice color scheme too. Beautiful!

  • Love how the bride is absolutely radiant in every photo. She looks happy, beautiful and in love….gorgeous.
