Tags archives: Shrine of St Joseph Wedding

It seems you literally have to confine me (Amy) to my home in order for me to get any blogging done. Clearly I will never be a famous blogger. I don’t even want to look to see when my last post was made. I know blogs help bring couples in, but my number one priority has always been speedy delivery (it’s been 12 years and I still remember how impatient I was waiting for our wedding pictures). All 2019 photos are delivered, and it has been a week from hell for the entire world. I’m not going to go down the rabbit hole talking about these things, instead I am going to post some pretty pictures from several fall weddings (ok, yes, summer too). I have spent the last 5 days prepping blogs- so be prepared for lots of pretty heading your way!


Brandon and Mary Margaret chose two of my all time favorite venues, the Shrine of St Joseph and the Coronado Ballroom. They are downright timeless, just like Mary Margaret. One thing is for certain, Mary Margaret is without a doubt her parent’s little angel. They are beaming with pride every time they look at her and it is obvious how much they love her and just how much they will do for their little girl. Mary Margaret and Brandon met during their time in dental school, Mary Margaret needed a ride to mass and her knight in shining armor came to her rescue. The rest is history and they are now one another’s dentists! I hope these pictures bring a smile to all!

Ok, I just cant stop with the black and white for this series. OBSESSED.

Tina Barrera, as always, did a lovely job with the florals.

Seriously with these flowers, is spring here yet?

Ok so the below picture wasn’t a set up! haha these guys were literally helping out the ladies.

That said, I’m not opposed to boys carrying bouquets… look how sweet they look! What do you think, Tina??

Ok just one more…

May the good Lord be with you down every road you roam.
And may sunshine and happiness surround you when you’re far from home.
And my you grow to be proud, dignified and true.
And do unto others as you’d have done to you.
Be courageous and be brave.
And in my heart you’ll always stay
Forever young.
– Rod Stewart
 Is my age showing yet? I seriously had this song stuck in my head all day as I watched Alex and Ryan’s parents beam with pride looking at their children and granddaughter. Alex, when I hear this song, I think of your huge smile- your ability to promptly light up a room with your joyous outlook on life. I pray you never lose that as life shapes you through the years. As parents to a beautiful baby girl, you already know just how quickly time goes. I hope your parents can always look at the two of you and see their happy babies. There are just so many moments from your wedding that I loved. Ill stop talking and just let the pictures do it for me- they are worth a thousand words, right?

It is always chaotic prepping your baby to be a flower girl. Imagine the stress when you are prepping as the bride as well!    
Huge thank you to our friends at the Shrine of St Joseph for playing with some lighting for us!
Alex and Ryan picked the beautiful Forest Hills Country Club for their wedding reception. Growing up on the course, the two of them already had several special memories made there.
They decided to make even more by celebrating their wedding day at the course they call “home”.
I absolutely LOVE these sweet bouquets from Lisa at Belli Fiori!
Alex had just one request…
CJ’s Disc Jockey never disappoints when it comes to keeping the dance floor alive!
Can  I just add that I absolutely adore the pastry chef at FHCC? She is AMAZING!!
Alex and Ryan, I hope these pictures bring you, your family and your friends immense joy.
Congratulations and may you stay- Forever Young.
