I honestly don’t think words can accurately describe Shannis & Dave’s wedding day. It was one of those “you just had to be there” events! But luckily, there are so many photos that give glimpses into the love and joy that surrounded these two during their late September wedding at Morais Vineyards.
Shannis and Dave have one of those sweet stories that remind you of the power of love and friendship. They met when they were just babies! Their dads are best friends who grew up together in the Dominican Republic. Eventually, their families moved to different states but they kept in touch over the years and officially started dating in 2017. And now, they’re married!! Along with their love, a strong theme of the day was the strength of their parent’s friendship. Decades of friendship culminating in an even deeper family bond! From the sweetest vow exchange to heartfelt speeches during the reception, everyone was filled with emotions of love and gratitude. It was such an honor to witness and capture!
Shannis & Dave, it was an honor to capture these images for you and your families. I hope they’re always a reminder of all the love and sweet bonds of friendship that surrounded you on your wedding day!

She was so easy and calming to work with, as it was my first branding session. She led me throughout the way and the images are perfect! “
