I have been very honored to have known Mark and Samantha for some time now. I first met them when their so very handsome boy Jacob was born. I was asked to come back when their beautiful daughter Emma was born.
I have been honored to be able to watch this wonderful family grow in number as well as in love. And I was lucky enough to be asked to be a part of their Day, the day they announced their Love to the world.
Congratulations to Mark and Samantha on becoming Mr. and Mrs! Your beautiful family is filled with love and you have your whole lives to enjoy it with each other.
I have to share this last little bit. Mark wrote a song for Samantha, and the PLAN was that he would surprise her with this song as their first dance. (I know, right?!!!) Well, life got in the way, and the song didn't get quite finished in time for the wedding. So close. Well, I knew that I wanted to photograph Mark playing for Samantha, and I knew that the Village Club had this BEAUTIFUL grand piano, so at the end of the evening, I asked Mark and Samantha to come upstairs, to take a couple of photos at the piano. When they got there, Mark sat down, and I asked him if he would play THE SONG for her. He did.. and you can see their love, you can see it.
Thank you Mark and Samantha, for letting me be a part of your day. It was a fantastic day to kick off a fantastic life for your whole family.
