You know that feeling when you're so excited about something, that your heart rate speeds up, you get goosebumps and your skin feels like it's stinging - or the proper term is tingling? That feeling can only come from being in love, getting ready for a job interview, accomplishing something that you've been working very hard for, and of course your entire wedding day.
Well I had that experience today, on the B train, heading home from work when just before we went below ground, I checked my email to discover that my wedding had been featured on Martha Stewart's Wedding site! Now I've been communicating with the team for almost a year about having the chance to be featured, but when it finally comes to fruition it's such an amazing feeling! Of course I had to wait whole ten minutes before I regained service and could actually see the feature (just imagine my anticipation).
My husband, family and I crafted the event almost entirely ourselves and I have learned that honest, hard work and patience will be rewarded. This is an industry that I dedicate my passions to and having the chance to share our special day has made it all so much sweeter!
I'm extremely thankful for discovering my gifted photographer, Michelle Gardella. All the best moments were captured beautifully and magically - this would have not been a possibility without she and her husband.
