Sherrie and Mark

This couple was featured several blog postings ago (see “Cycles of Love) along with their beautiful motorcycles. Now I’d like to share with you some of their wedding portraits. The ceremony was held on the beach at the Ramada Hollywood Beach Resort on a Saturday that was picture perfect. The size of the wedding party and guests list gave the whole event a warm, intimate, family feeling that set the mood for the entire day. Sherrie was as beautiful as ever and Mark looked impeccable in his tux. In fact, Mark looked so hot I noticed that Sherrie couldn’t keep her eyes, hands, and lips off the dude. (I agree, Sherrie…he looked SHARP!)

Once we finished the ceremony and took several shots of the bridal party and family, we had to dashed inside the Ramada Tu-Can Tango Resturant to avoid a sudden rain shower that blew in off the ocean. Sherrie and Mark and their guests had the entire restaurant to themselves, and that’s when the partying began. The main players in turning on the fun for the evening festivities was LaRae Laws (one of Sherrie’s best girlfriends) and Uncle Bob. Now these two should have their own TV sitcom. They dirty danced the night away and provided endless laughter for invited guests. I did not forget to insert some of their antics in the images below.

Over this year I will photograph dozens of weddings, but already Sherrie and Mark’s wedding has made a lasting impression in my mind. Besides the show of love they have for each other, I really enjoyed the kinship and joy each of their families displayed towards one another. And, I truly appreciated the “artist freedom” they gave me to document "their day" as well as how everyone loved on me and my daughter Dana. It doesn’t get any better than that as wedding photographers.

Oh, by the way, Maggie, Cynthia, and Taylor. Thanks for being such awesome bridesmaids. In my book you ladies were tops and you all made my day's work a treat.

Willie, Thought the artistry of it all made our wedding even more magical and full of mystery. You've created a tapestry of my life that is sheer perfection.
I have one happy husband who talks about our beautiful beach wedding with all our friends and family and that has brought them all so much closer together. On a personal note, you are a true friend and confidant, Willie. (Dana, you look da bom in your tux and I want a photo of that!)
