From our very first meeting with Desirae and John at The Café and Ice Cream Parlor, I knew we were a perfect match for their “tone on tone” Greek wedding.  The bride, Desirae, new exactly what she wanted for her special day, down to the tinniest detail.  She wanted her wedding to be all neutral colors and described her color palette as “tone on tone”.  She had a wonderful vision and her soon to be hubby, was just as clear about the things he wanted incorporated as well.  After a few months of planning, their big day was finally here.  Desirae and John live in Canada and flew out a few days prior to their wedding.  Desirae was so excited to see what we had in store for the design on her wedding.  We remember John cracking a joke by saying something along the lines of: “Don’t get too excited, you haven’t even seen what they’ve done yet”.  Desirae replied back with, “I don’t have to, I just know everything will be exactly how I want it”.  This was such a memorable comment.  I couldn’t be more grateful to be apart of such an important day for these two.  I will forever be thankful to know that they put so much trust and faith in us to make their wedding dreams come true.  Here are some of our favorite shots, from Ben and Kelly Photography, of their wedding day:
