Mr + Mrs Sheedy // An Historic Estate Wedding at Locust Grove in Poughkeepsie, NY

So, let me just tell you something: Brooke is one of the funniest, most charismatic, and all sorts of hilarious people you could ever hope to meet. There's something about her funny way that is so direct and endearing, you can't help but fall in love with her. I know that's how she first charmed Paul. ;) These two were some of the easiest individuals to photograph ever. Me to Brooke: You pose so naturally! Brooke: I used to try to model but then, you know, bills. C'est la vie, but it worked out for her wedding day. ;)

Sometimes, I wish I could bottle up the essence of various wedding days. To be able to recount and relive all of the uniqueness of each one - I would pay good money for that. Brooke + Paul's would encapsulate roses in bloom, the smell of lush leaves after rain, Spice Girls karaoke, sweet kindness, and loud laughter. Don't you think that would be worth a million bucks? I do. <3
