I don’t think it has ever rained quite so much during a wedding day, but thankfully it added to the romance and beauty of Julie and Leopold’s celebration. I am always delighted to photograph unique and intimate weddings and this little Liberty Village gem fit the bill perfectly.

Advice for future brides & grooms: Don`t get caught up in all the little details and other people`s expectations; focus on what really matters to you.
