Dina + Blake ~ Chez Wedding Photography

Pretty much from the moment I first spoke to Dina – I had such a great feeling about she and Blake. She is the type of person who lights up a room when she enters it and people gravitate towards her… including Blake. 🙂 Her positivity, confidence, kindness, and genuine smile are just a few reasons for that. Blake has more of a quiet calmness to him that grounds Dina and the way he loves her is beautiful because it is constant and unwavering. It is in the everyday little moments – like the way he’s always looking out for her… the way he reaches for her, and holds her… and it is most definitely in the way he looks at her. These two are such perfect compliments to each other and it was truly an honor to document this moment in their love story.

For their wedding they wanted to feel like one big cocktail party with delicious food and good country music – and I’m pretty sure it was exactly that! From the velvet lounge chairs and stunning flowers by Revel Decor, to the band they brought in all the way from Kentucky, to the fabulous menu from Blue Plate – it was perfect! (Also in huge part thanks to Misha at Nouvelle Events who planned and executed the day perfectly!)
