For once I wanted to start a post with a picture rather than words, because this picture just doesn’t need any! I love love LOVE Esse’s understated Mona Lisa-ish smile here!
It’s going to be hard to write this one without using the word love way too much…there was just so much of it going around at this beautiful blessed event! Seeing and trying to capture the connection between Eddie and Esse was such a joy and it made their wedding truly special.
(This amazing arch inspired the details of the wedding – lots of elegant swirls and seashells.)
Eddie and Esse both have incredibly big hearts and the love they’ve given is clearly returned by the wonderful friends and family that surrounded them throughout the day. (Esse has nannied about 12 children and just became mom to Eddie’s beautiful daughter as well!)
From the moments with their closest friends getting ready, to the farewell from the last guest, excitement and well wishes surrounded this gorgeous couple.
Humphrey’s on Shelter Island made a lovely backdrop to the “I Do”s (and everyone on staff was delightful and gracious as well!). Not too much hesitation in relinquishing Esse to Eddie’s capable hands :)!
It was apparent how close these two keep their families and friends by the amount of love going around the reception. Eddie’s best man “got something in his eye” during his toast, Esse’s father showed off his abundant love for his beautiful daughter in what was possibly the longest. toast. ever ;-) and Esse’s sister’s sentiments caused gasping and tears (good ones!). And that was only the toasts. Primo DJs did an amazing job keeping the party going and Eddie+Esse also had me bring the photobooth for some reception fun!! Check back soon for a highlights reel!
There were so many perfect moments that day, but their love for each other truly outshone everything else – it’s clear these two were made for each other!
