From the second I spoke with Jessica and her mom, Theresa I knew how special Jessica & Emil’s Cloverbank Country Club wedding was going to be. The amazing mother-daughter relationship they share reminds me of my own and I have been counting the days leading up to this beautiful day! Especially after having so much fun with these two during their spring engagement session earlier this year. You can check out a slideshow of my favorites!
The day started off with Jess and Theresa getting ready together. These two were as calm as could be! It was so important to photograph their sweet relationship. I loved how they took a moment to walk together through the venue to take it all in. The light filled the Cloverbank Country Club in the most beautiful way and highlighted all the details that these two meticulously planned. Even the weather cooperated and the heat spell we had been experiencing seemed to disappear.
Jess walking down the aisle with her parents was a sweet testament to how close they all are. Jessica’s mom was in tears by the time they made it to Emil and the hug he gave her melted my heart. The ceremony had us all in tears with Jess and Emil’s heartfelt vows. With some of Emil’s family having traveled so far, the whole day was incredibly special.
Jess – looked gorgeous in her flowy dress and I could not get enough of the way Emil looked at you so full of love. It made portrait time fly by and I’m so happy we got to explore the grounds and find a little bit of everything!
A timeless venue with a lovely outdoor terrace to enjoy the beautiful views.
Golden hour goes so quickly but we slipped out from the party for just a few minutes to capture those last rays before they disappeared. It was the perfect refresher to cool off from dancing and I love how they turned out!
With Emil’s Bulgarian roots, the dance floor was packed with friends and family all night! I loved watching the special dances and everyone joining in!
From the bottom of my heart – thank you for welcoming me into your lives and treating me like I was a guest and friend from the beginning. It was an incredible honor to be there, to photograph your day and all the moments of love within it.
Congratulations Jessica & Emil! Wishing you endless love, joy, and all the golden sunsets!
Thank you to everyone who made this day such a success!
