Tiffany & Dan :: KC Reception

I don't know who has been more excited about this post, me... or the bride  :)

I've been waiting for this day for over a year.  Tiffany and Dan were the winners of my free wedding package giveaway at last years bridal show.  (You can find that story HERE.)  From the moment I met up with Tiffany, I knew it was going to be amazing!  If I were to write a list of everything I wanted in my "perfect bride and groom", I would only have to write three words down.... 
Tiffany and Dan

We've met up several times throughout the year to discuss plans, shoot an Engagement Session, and just to hang out.  It's been a blast getting to know them, and I know I've found a lifelong friend in Tiffany.  My heart is so full right now, and as I've been preparing this post, it's almost been ready to burst.  This wedding reception has been a culmination of over a year of planning, and it also happens to bring my 2010 wedding season to a close.   Being a part of this day, and being able to give of myself has been a true reminder and reflection of why I do what I do, and why I love it so much!

The reception was held at the ever fabulous Californos in Westport. 

Tiffany and Dan stayed in The Q Hotel and Spa which is also in Westport.

Dan's a lucky man... Tiffany is flawless.
Tiffany with her Mom, and sister.  Here she presented her sister, Jen, with a framed copy of the speech she had given at her wedding.  What a sweet moment!

Dan's not so bad himself  :)

Okay, Tiff.... looking This fabulous does nothing for my own self-esteem  :)
The lighting in the Q's rooms was amazing!
Love me some cowboy boots!  Yeehaw!
Party bus time!

It was so cold outside, so we decided to walk around throught The Link.

Okay you two... by yourselves you're fabulous... together, you're smoldering!

I want to give a big shout out to The Velvet Dog in the Martini Corner district!  They weren't even open yet, but allowed us to come in out of the cold for a few shots... they even gave a round of shots on the house!

One word.... HOT!  I love everything about this image below!  In fact, so does Tiffany.  I hope she doesn't mind but here is what she had to say about the image:
"I've looked at the "red couch" picture probably 200 times today (I sure hope FB doesn't alert you every time I look at a picture or that would be really embarrassing!). I really can't quit staring at it. And it's not because I love my dress or Dan's tie . . . you captured something that I've never seen before in over 6 years of "pictures" of Dan & I. Even though we obviously knew you were taking a picture, it's not fake, it's not posed. It's Dan & I. I love that one stinking picture more than most things in life. :)"
One of my favorite 1st dance images.
There were so many other fabulous images, but I thought my blog might explode if I tried to add them all, so I included them in a slideshow.  To view the slideshow from the evening CLICK HERE!

Tiffany... Thank you for stopping by my booth last year, and putting your name in the drawing.  Thank you for being so excited when you won, and for allowing me... trusting me with your wedding reception.  Thank you for being you.  You have been everything I have wanted in a bride, a client, and a friend.  To both you and Dan, I wish you all the joy and happiness that life can bring!  
I pray God blesses your life immensely!

About Christina

One of my favorite memories from my own wedding, aside from marrying my husband, was when my Dad walked me down the aisle and I leaned over and whispered to him, "I'll always be your little girl."  I love that moment!
     It's moments that make up our lives, defines who we are, and ultimately create our destinies.  Many such moments have brought me to where I am today.  I began photographing in 2001, and began Sandberg Photography in the fall of 2006.  This has been a huge dream of mine, and I believe that God has given me a gift of capturing unique and special moments; without Him, I am truly nothing!  I owe this dream to Him!
