I love it when couples, at that moment when they are first standing together in front of the congregation of friends, family, and loved ones, are so overcome with love and excitement that they steal a kiss before the ceremony has begun. Sarah and Liam were these people on their wedding day (well, to be honest, I think it was Liam who did the kiss stealing). There was so much grinning at this wedding that my cheeks hurt just thinking of it.

The food and environment at Pizzaiolo demand a certain degree of chillness. The cocktail “hour” melts into dinner, which courses on for a leisurely amount of time, there are speeches and toasts and then lots of killer deserts and then people dance and continue to eat and drink. The weddings I have shot at Pizzaiolo have never adhere to tight timelines, and have ample time committed to drinking, eating, and talking with friends and family. This is not surprising, but I am somehow surprised by it each time I shoot there.

Hardy and I ended up staying to the end of the night… which was sort of unplanned. We got locked into the ally and had to have the manager from Boot and Shoe come over to let us out. We were happy to kick back at the bar and soak in the sweetness of Sarah and Liam’s celebration.

Crimson Horticulture Rarities in the ally behind Pizzaiolo did the beautiful flowers. Their shop is super cute (no really) and the ladies who run it are wonderful.

Here are some pics. Enjoy!

Sarah and Liam pulled up to Sibley Park in their sweet little BMW 2002. They wanted to do their engagement session in a place that had rolling hills. I racked my brain trying to think of somewhere close by. Sibley turned out to be an great spot. We checked out the labyrinths, hiked up into a bay tree grove, and enjoyed the quiet and beautiful views. I am looking forward to Sarah and Liam’s wedding next month at Pizzaiolo. Here are some pics from our adventure. Enjoy!
