Josh and Erika

I had been waiting to celebrate with Erika and Josh for SO long and their gorgeous, incredible wedding day at Dover Hall was a literal dream come true!! From the details that she curated so intentionally to reflect her and Josh’s love, to the family and friends that were there to support and celebrate with them…every part of the day was absolutely perfect! 

Erika spent almost two years dreaming up and designing the day with the amazing Caroline of Posh PR and even with having to change her date and venue part way through the planning process, the day came together so beautifully. She’s an amazing wedding photographer herself and has incredible taste! Amanda Veronee designed a show stopping floral wall, Chloe of English Tea Paperie designed so many gorgeous acrylic signs and details, and don’t even get me started on the vintage Rolls Royce from First Class Limo…

But as beautiful as the wedding was, it was even more beautiful to have the honor of hearing them share their vows with one another and to get to celebrate the special love that they share. They have an extraordinary way of spreading that love to others and making everyone around them feel welcome, cherished and important. 

I love Erika and Josh for some many reasons, but that’s one of my favorite things about them…they do everything with so much heart. They have so much passion for life and their friends and family and each other and it was such a joy to get to see that on their big day! The whole day felt like a party from the moment I saw Erika in the bridal sweet to watching them walk through the sparkler exit…I had the hardest time narrowing these down! I hope you enjoy some of my favorites!

    You have outdone yourself! These are stunning. The whole thing looks like a fairy tale. Also, their leather jackets are amazing!
