Leah & Eric: Holy Family Church {March 9, 2013}

We’d like to take you on a photographic journey of a wedding that took place just over a week ago. Leah & Eric were married by Father Hickey at Holy Family Church in Rockland, and continued the celebration with family and friends at The Pembroke Country Club. The stage was set: a beautiful bride, a handsome groom… A wedding party filled with family and friends and overflowing with smiles and tears. There were tears of joy for the coming together of two beautiful people and their families, and there were tears of sorrow for those who could not be with them in body, but were surely there in spirit, to offer Leah & Eric their blessings from beyond. Above all, love each other deeply.

You must be ready for a peek at the bride by now? Here she is…

This wedding couldn’t get underway without some smiles and advice from the bride’s grandmother.

The bride always get first dibs on the blog, being mentioned and showcased first. That’s just how it goes. But we had a groom, as well, and the groom had plenty of support.

A grand entrance was made by all, including the youngest of the wedding party. Lucky guy, or lucky girls? You decide.
