Mr + Mrs LaRose // A Sweet Fairy-Like Wedding at Mount Gulian in Beacon, NY

Confession:

Sometimes I choose the photos for blog posts, but then let myself mull over the right words to put down to describe these beautiful days that I have the honor of being a part of.

Trust me: it can be done - and is done well, and regularly. :)

Shana + Rob are what I refer to as the realest of the real. I remember meeting them at our initial consultation, and thinking, Wow - these people feel like old friends; I could talk to them for days. Seriously. They are confident, but kind. They were excited, but down-to-earth. Their wedding day was gorgeous, and oh so them...
