Molly and Zach | Perlé Wedding

“If nothing else, make sure you come hungry!  My family will make sure you are fed!”  These are the last words that I hear from Molly before I see her on her big day.  She was referring to feeding both Barry and I breakfast as we started photography coverage on her and Zach’s wedding day.  The second we stepped foot through the hotel door that day, we were asked to grab a bite of breakfast and some coffee.  As Molly is getting her final hair touch ups, I turn around and am greeted by Molly’s identical twin sister, Katy.  “Champaign?” Katy asks.  While we passed on the champagne, the hospitality was so warm and kind.  Everywhere we turned, members of Molly’s family were making sure we were well taken care of.  Such generous hearts.  These are great people.

And they are fun people.  I don’t think I’ve ever laughed as hard as I did watching Zach and his brothers Vogue-ing for the camera, or watching Molly and Zach laughing and enjoying each other during every stage of their day.  What’s great about this couple is that they always see the fun in any kind of situation, and there is a smile on their face at all times.  Even if the ring gets stuck as they are trying to slide it on a finger (yes, this happened during the ring exchange part of the ceremony!) Marriage should have a ton of fun and laughter, and for this reason and many others, Molly and Zach have the start to a beautiful and long life together.
