Every love story has a beginning, a "Once Upon a Time..." for telling to future generations. The moment they met, how they knew they were in love, and the moment they decided on forever. The next chapter of Tom & Erin's love story started with a beautiful, personal and intimate winter wedding. Here is a peek!
I spent some time with Erin as she got ready with the help of her mother and sister.
The beautiful bride as she waited her Man of Honor arriving to see her for the first time.
Of note: military dress gloves do not lend themselves to putting on a necklace!
Tom and the guys were undergoing preparations of their own next door. The fabulous Ryan Moore helped me capture the day and spent some time with the guys.
The handsome groom ready to see his bride for the first time.
Erin & Tom chose to have a First Look, a chance for the bride and groom to privately see each other for the first time before the ceremony. Not only does it allow for an intimate chance to see each other, having photographs taken during this time keeps the day flowing smoothly.

The approach and first glace. Ryan's view left, my view on the right.
A quiet moment together. I love photographing love like this.
I love the look on Tom's face at his first look at Erin coming down the aisle.
Husband and wife!
We whisked the bride and groom away for some quiet moments with us to just bask in the joy of being married and a few portraits in the freezing weather.
Erin, you are gorgeous. Please don't tell me you aren't photogenic again, I don't believe you!
While I was photographing the wedding party, Ryan grabbed this amazing shot of the ring bearer and flower girl!
These folks knew how to fill the dance floor!
Erin & Tom, may your story be long with many characters, much joy, and endless love for all the years to come. I hope you have enjoyed the peek, there is MUCH more to come! Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your day!
