Christy couldn’t wait to see the look on Omair’s face when he saw her as a bride… and long before their wedding day came, it was the moment Omair had been dreaming of, too. He couldn’t wait to see Christy for the first time wearing the dress she had chosen, twirl her around, and stand
When they dreamed of their wedding day, Eric and Whitney imagined exactly what it would sound like… The joyful sounds of clinking glasses during the toasts, boisterous laughter from all their friends on the dance floor, and the buzz of their guests mingling together in one beautiful, whimsically romantic ballroom.

Jay and Rachel’s wedding had ALL the classic vibes – there were so many heart-filling, family-focused, rich-with-tradition moments that had Jeff and I feeling like the luckiest photographers on the PLANET. After they sealed the deal in their traditional ceremony (see
The day Jay first met Rachel at brunch with friends, Jay’s buddy looked over at him, saw that twinkle in his eye, and said something along the lines of, “Don’t even bother. You don’t have a chance with her!” Challenge. Accepted. You see, Jay and Rachel were somewhat of an unlikely match – they admit
They said “I do” in a traditional ceremony, dined with their guests in the most elegant setting, and then danced the night away with all their favorite people… And in every single special, emotional, joyful moment, Wade and Catherine were SAVORING. (If you haven’t seen all the amazing details from their wedding day yet, be
Wade and Catherine’s dream wedding was all things traditional and thoughtful and incredibly classic. (Translation: All things oh-so-Youngren-approved!)
