I had the incredible honor of being a part of the union of Mike and Maria. This couple is nothing short of extraordinary. Maria is one of the most genuine people I’ve ever met. Her sweet nature is only matched by her husband, Mike. Maria and Mike share a love that is full of life and spirit. What was also striking was the love that their friends and family had for the both of them. People literally traveled from all of the world to Chattanooga, TN to be a part of this very special day. And boy was it a fun party! One of my favorite moments were Maria wearing her grandmother’s wedding dress for some portraits. It was special to see her relive her special day with her granddaughter. It was also special to see how all of her friends and family came together on the dance floor! Maria did another outfit change into the most beautiful tutu I’ve ever seen and the party reached a new level! To top off the night the 2 marine biologists boarded a bedazzled canoe and rode off into the night together! It was just magic!
