a huge thank you to our friends at snap! photography for sharing these fantastic shots of dana & mark's wedding in newport, rhode island. these two lovebirds exude fun, love and happiness and there's absolutely no denying it in these photos. you'll smile & maybe even tear up when you read some of the bride's own words. enjoy!
the weekend was filled with much love, happiness and tears. happy tears for sure, especially when thinking of my father who had passed away when I was 15 years old. i always knew it would be an emotional weekend, but it started off with an amazing sign from my father. the morning mark and i left for newport, we BOTH knew he was with us. mark had picked up a rental car, a red ford escape. my father had owned a ford dealership and always had red cars, red boats and a red motorcycle, so we knew that was the beginning, but when we saw the license plate, that really hit home. the NY license plate read, FAE 6193. my father's name was frederick albert emmerich and his initials were FAE. the 619 was our wedding date, june 19th. the 3, well we think it meant that he would always be by our sides. pretty amazing way to kick off the wedding weekend for sure.
i don't know about you, but that story just melts my heart. beyond special.
thanks a million to dana & mark for sharing their story & gorgeous photos.
