Mary & Joseph | The Ballroom at Ellis Preserve

It’s hard to find words to describe how amazing Mary and Joseph’s wedding day was… But I’ll give it a try!

Last Saturday, on their official wedding date, Mary and Joseph celebrated their love with their closed friends and family members. Even though their wedding date remained the same, they needed to make quite a few adjustments to make the day happen. Change of venue, change of reception location, a pandemic… but none of that got closer to ruin their perfect wedding day!

I met Mary and the girls at The Ballroom at Ellis Preserve where they were getting ready. As usual, I came in to greet everyone and grab the bridal details. When I saw every little piece Mary chose to wear on her wedding day, I knew I was about to get great shots! 

The gold bracelet you’ll see below belonged to Mary’s great grandmother and was given to her by her sweet grandma. Unfortunately, due to some health issues, grandma couldn’t make it to the wedding. But after mass, we all stopped by so grandma could see the new Mr. & Mrs. Oh boy, what a sweet moment that was! 

These two families that became one last Saturday have something very special about them. We all felt it… The way they spoke during toasts, the happy tears throughout the day, their devotion to the Lord… Everything was beautiful, meaningful… incredible!

What a beautiful day it was! And you can see their joy, love and happiness in each photo!

Mr. & Mrs. Buckley, congratulations!!! I am beyond happy to have met such admirable people as you and your loved ones! I’m honored you chose me to register such a special day in your lives! I wish you nothing but a happy and blessed married life!

Below are a few of my favorites from this gorgeous wedding day at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church and The Ballroom at Ellis Preserve.
