How do I get so lucky connecting with these dream couples of mine??! Ilaria and Geoff are a couple of the sweetest people I've met, and their wedding was full of laughter, goofiness and lighthearted fun! Ilaria got ready at the Sommerby Club while Geoff at home. I swooned over the details ALL MORNING! I mean, talk about my happy place! This gal is a gal after my own heart! She had all kinds of things saved for me to use for photos and enough time reserved for me to play. I believe I was all smiles the rest of the day, and so was the bride, full on anticipation to see the photos! (I tortured her with a sneak peek as I hopped up and down so excited over the Sommerby carpet! Yep. That's how I roll! LOL ;))
We met up for the first look at Sommerby and had just enough time for some cute photos before it started raining. Umbrellas came in handy! The crew was up for getting a bit sprinkled on and none of this put a damper on the party. The ceremony went off without a hitch, although I kept worrying that I'd somehow accidentally end up in the baptismal fountain. Thankfully no photographer dunking excitement took place that day... We drove off in wedding limo style, and lo and behold, the sun came out just in time for us to have some more photo fun back at the venue!!! There was the adult version of cake smashing, the cutest honey pots for guests, as everyone cheered and danced into the night. Overall a great day! And... a huge things to my 2nd shooter Nicole for dividing and conquering the day with me :)  --- Ester
