Gina & Sherman
A traditional wedding with vintage touches united Gina & Sherman. This couple grew up as friends in middle & high school and it wasn't until college where their love blossomed. These two are a perfect match and like most couples, balance each other out! Sherman can be the more outgoing of the two, while Gina can be a little more introverted, but with a hilarious sense of humor. They share the love of food & cooking and carefree fun, all while having similar traditional family morals and values that keep them close. From the very beginning of working with them, they insisted on meeting ML at Lebanese Grill to talk wedding photography. Even at their engagement session, they invited her to their awesome home in Ferndale, where they showed her around the town, got drinks and an antipasto platter, of course! This wedding was one for the books! We enjoyed seeing all the familiar faces from the bridal party because we (ML & Suzy) too went to school with Gina & Sherman. There was a mix of nostalgic moments while getting ready for the wedding and seeing Gina in her parents home for the very last time. To the moments that tugged at your heart, when Sherman's younger brother, Markie gave his speech and mentioned how their mother & sister were looking down this day and how he lost a sister, but also gained a sister (Gina), nine years later. Lastly, the fun moments that made you smile, when Gina & Sherman did their first "choreographed" dance to "Dreaming of You Tonight- by Selena" and then later in the night with all of their crazy friends clinking glasses and getting down on the dance floor! I might add, I was very impressed with their late night snack, Mufaletta..but not surprised!
The new Mr. & Mrs. spent their honeymoon in warm Costa Rica!
We hope they enjoyed their wedding, as much as we did! We wish them years of happiness and excellent food!
