this was a dream come true for me…photographing the wedding of a lovely couple….cherise & aaron…and the icing on the cake is that chersie is one of the founders of an amazing luxury shoe company called OMELLE (pronounced “ahm’ elle”)…all the shoes in the collection are crafted in italy…the shoes are unique & stylish…with architectural details….i am coveting the pair below….
most of you already know, that i get a little weak in the knees around a beautiful pair of shoes….i was beside myself at this lovely wedding…i should mention, it was planned by the amazing LISA VORCE….she perfectly captured the essence of this sweet couple….classic timeless touches mixed with modern charm….a perfect compliment to the fabulous shoes that seemed to be everywhere….
because pretty much every female guest was rocking a pair of OMELLE shoes
of course, the most important element of the day was the absolutely palpable affection these two love birds had for each other…they were so tender & kind with each other….simply wonderful….xoxoxo
kiss & tell (she said)….
“When the doors to the church opened on our wedding day, all I could see was Aaron waiting to take my hand at the end of the aisle, ready to embark on our journey together as husband and wife. Our five year relationship was a series of hellos and goodbyes, as I lived in New Orleans for two years and Los Angeles for three years of our courtship and Aaron lived in Las Vegas. Most of the kisses we shared have been at an airport or through the travels we experienced together around the world. However, the most memorable kiss we have ever shared was after we were pronounced husband and wife, knowing we would never have to say goodbye and our kiss was symbolic of a new life as one. I would forever be with the love of my life, my biggest supporter and my best friend for an eternity.”
Cherise Angelle Hurlburt
kiss & tell (he said)….
“Our courtship lasted five years and earned us approximately fifty thousand frequent flier miles. Cherise was based in New Orleans for the first two years of our relationship and Los Angeles for the remaining thirty-six months. As much as I wanted to be elsewhere, I was in Las Vegas. If you had asked previous to our wedding day, “what was your most memorable kiss?” , we would have had great difficulty naming a specific place or date. Our minds flashback to the many undistinguishable airport terminals because it forever seemed we were constantly coming or going from one another. As cliche as it may sound, we both agree that there was only one kiss, the kiss that ended the distance and our elite frequent flier programs, the kiss we shared at our wedding. I was standing on the alter with my best man when the doors at the front of the church swung open and I saw a silhouette encompassed by a brilliant white light. It was the last time Cherise would ever have to come to me. I cannot but help to think of the metaphor of the church being like a terminal. However, in this instance, when we kissed, a kiss we had practiced on many prior occasions, we were departing not on planes, but from our individual persons. We were one. Never again would we be saying good-bye.”
have a beautiful shoe day….xoxo
