annie + bobby | westfields marriott

Four years ago, one of my dearest friends was married on New Year’s Eve, and I was lucky enough to be in her wedding. I remember LOVING having such amazing New Year’s plans. And I realized that year that NYE weddings are wonderful because everyone sticks around for the entire celebration! So (not surprisingly) I was thrilled when Annie and Bobby first contacted me about the possibility of photographing their NYE wedding.

These two have such a special love. They dated briefly in college, and even after they stopped dating, Bobby just knew that Annie was the one. Years of friendship followed, and Bobby remained committed to her. Seriously? I love stories like that.  And I really love that I was there to capture this sweet celebration! Annie and Bobby are so much fun to be around, and their wedding was an appropriate exclamation point to a wonderful holiday season. The wedding celebration flowed seamlessly into a rockin’ New Year’s party that included Annie and her bridesmaids all changing into adorable cocktail dresses. I Loved it! We captured so many wonderful images, but here are just a handful of my favorites…

Dear Annie: You’re lovely. Inside and out.

Dear Bobby: You’re pretty handsome too.

Happy New Year!

Annie and Bobby: You sure know how to kick off a marriage! I wish you both a lifetime of happiness!
