why we are intimate…13 years and you

13 years ago today, my life changed forever. 

here is a peek into our wedding that we had in our home.

and also, here is our formal introduction of our "intimate wedding package."

it is based on what our needs were 13 years ago, and how that can apply to today's engaged couple...

Over the past 10 years, I would venture to say that we have shot well over 150 wedings. These weddings have ranged from large and elobrate with over 500 guests, to small and simplistic with only the bride groom as well as their parents in attendance. 
Each wedding unique, and beautiful.
And yes, I may be partial, but I always go back to the perfection of my very own wedding in November of 2000. 
After a whirwind courtship, my husband Charlie and I were married in the house that we had just purchased.  The home is over 100 years old.  It has 5 fireplaces, a grand 
staircase, large stained glass windows, and it was completely empty.  There were no 
appliances yet, no furniture, only new revisons that were very necessary, but were not visible to the normal guest.  
We decided that this grand, empty, perfect home would be the ultimate location for the 
intimate wedding that we were planning.  So we went for it.  
Illuminated with candles and fireplaces, there were hors d’oeuvres in every room of our home.  Upstairs and downstairs, our guests mingled.  And that Wednesday evening, the night before Thanksgiving, 20 minutes later than scheduled, I walked down our main staircase to marry the man of my dreams, in front of 100 of our closest family and friends who gathered in our living room to watch.  
We had no photographer, only a friend who offered to use my camera to take 
pictures during the evening. 
It was not perfect.  (Remember I said I was late?) But to this day, in my mind, it was the quintessential conclusion of the night that I had envisioned to marry my sweetie.
Looking back, are there things that I would change?  Maybe only one.  
I love these images, as real as they are, but I would have loved to have had
professional images from the evening.  Negatives or files that were large enough to print beautifully, and an exquisite album that we could enjoy for years to come. 
Our wedding was far from typical.  
Our thought: how many more weddings, distinct and unique are being planned as well?  
This package was derived from the needs that we had, and we are proud to offer it to you.
