It’s funny how vividly I remember our meeting…and yet the rest of our friendship is […]

Danielle and Ryan’s Wedding

It couldn’t have been a more perfect day for a sweeter couple. Mike and I don’t take on very many weddings these days. The timing and charisma have to align exactly for us to make it work. As soon as we met Danielle and Ryan, we got really excited about getting to know them better […]

Dear Jen and Mike,

Thank you both for the sneak peak and especially for your comments regarding Danielle and Ryan. It seemed as though all the stars were in alignment that evening! The weather, the setting, the ceremony and the dinner, not to forget the little details all made it a very special event. Danielle truly glowed and Ryan was the happiest and most relaxed I’ve seen him. You did a great job of catching our son as he is, not looking posed. I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of the pictures! Enjoy your sail on Vytis next month!
