You guys remember Kristen & Erik? Well, inspired by Rob & Jamie’s amazing Key West Wedding, (Jamie is Erik’s sister), these two decided to get hitched in Puerto Rico, a place that is very near & dear to Kristen’s family! Everyone traveled to beautiful San Juan and it was an amazing affair. 🙂
The entire event was beautiful, and took place at the San Juan Marriot. We had a chance to see the rehearsal and enjoy a beautiful dinner the night before with the whole group, a fun-loving bunch of close-knit peeps. We are in love with this family!! We actually started planning “destination birth” photos in France when future kiddos arrive. Just need to get Rob’s approval, haha!
As for our fantastic newlyweds, Kristen & Erik are an absolute blast, and their love for each other radiated throughout the entire trip!
An adorable mother-daughter smooch pre-ceremony 🙂
Kristen’s dad was so sweet when he first saw her all dressed up.
A sweet, beautiful family.
Did we mention how fun they are, too??
A little no-peeking first glance moment before the wedding — so cute!
Time to get hitched!!
Such a gorgeous couple!
Their outdoor reception sparkled under the stars — even after a mini-rainstorm!
Erik, Kristen, Higgins & Figueroa families — thank you all SO much for including us in your big event!! We have absolutely adored getting to know all of you, and look forward to hanging out again soon — photos or no photos! (Maybe we can bring some brews up to the tiki hut in PA!)
Hey guys!! Guess what?? (Pause…) One of our weddings made the COVER of a NATIONAL MAGAZINE!!!! They did a huge feature & everything!
Remember Anna & Tai Jin? Here’s a link to their engagement session and the sneak peek we posted from their gorgeous Delaware beach wedding. Well, they submitted their wedding photography to the folks over at Stampington & they loved it so much that they made them the cover photo for Mingle magazine, featuring a six-page spread chock full of their Leafo wedding photos!!
Their wedding featured TONS of gorgeous handmade details, and we are so excited to share them with you!
An eclectic theme seamlessly combined elements from both of their backgrounds. Gorgeous handmade decor incorporated the ocean (where Anna’s family has spent many summers), while parasols, fish kites, and traditional delicacies offered a stylish nod to their shared loved for Chinese culture.
Pre-ceremony, we hit the boardwalk at Rehoboth Beach. The entire wedding party & many guests headed into Funland for bumper cars and carousel rides. Afterward, a friend dressed in full mariachi regalia serenaded them. They were slicing through crowds better than Moses parted the Red Sea!
It was an absolutely gorgeous day for a beach wedding!
Anna & Tai-Jin, thank you both SO much for submitting our photos & inviting us to be part of your fantastically unique, beautiful wedding day! Many thanks also go out to Anna’s mother, Andrea, for designing all of those gorgeous decorative details! You can check out her blog, Dangling Threads, for even more creative genius 🙂
Kristen & Erik’s Engagement Session
You may remember these two from Rob & Jamie’s ridiculously fun Key West wedding. Erik is the bride’s brother, and he & Kristen actually got engaged while they were in Florida for the wedding! We had a blast getting to know them that week, and when they asked us to be their wedding photographers, we were SO excited! These two are silly, sweet, and have some serious movie quoting abilities. What’s not to love??
1. Our couple is awesome.
2. The old steel mill is a huge part of the town’s history. It helped build the world’s first Ferris wheel for the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair and the Golden Gate Bridge!
3. This area was inside a paid admission festival, blocked by a carnival ride, fenced off, and in a “No Trespassing” area. Many, many thanks to all three levels of security who were kind enough to let us in for one great shot!
4. Our couple is awesome!
Kristen & Erik, thanks again for the amazing adventure in your gorgeous town. We can’t wait for your destination wedding in Puerto Rico next summer!
Remember Anna & Tai-Jin’s adorable engagement session? Here’s a little sneak peek from their wedding 🙂
Stay tuned — we can’t wait to share all of the gorgeous details and hilarious antics from this California couple’s fantastic destination wedding in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware!
Maren & Ryan are an awesome couple. They currently live in Michigan, where Ryan is a top-notch college field hockey coach and Maren plays professional field hockey for the USA women’s team! Despite their busy schedules & frequent long-distance commutes, they’ve managed to maintain a laid-back attitude about everything. Their positive energy and quirky creativity is contagious, and it permeated every detail of their wedding day to make an event that was absolutely unique to them!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Maren’s Seychelles bridal shoes!!
The ladies finished getting ready at the Lewes Historical Society.
An absolutely gorgeous day at Canalfront Park in Lewes!
A very sweet sand ceremony. Maren’s dad is the Mayor of Lewes, so he was able to officiate their ceremony. So cool!
Maren’s gorgeous flowers designed by Silk & Sands Florist.
All of the tables were adorned with wild flowers, and chalkboard menus labeled all of the choices provided for guests (16 mile –yummy!!). Every amazing detail was perfect & unique thanks to Make My Day Event Planning.
Yummy hors d’oeurves from Plate catering.
Congratulations, you gorgeous newlyweds!! Thanks so much for inviting us to photograph your wedding — it was an absolutely fantastic, fun, beautiful day!

While getting to know them, Anna shared that they love going out dancing. Poof, inspiration for the engagement shoot! Many thanks to the owners of Eden & JAM for letting us use their stage for some tango-licious photos!
