Ali and Marielle had my heart from the get go. We met a little over a year before their wedding and listening tot heir love story just captured my heart from the start. Ali was her boss. They were both physicians going through their residencies. After I met with them, Ali and Marielle had to do a long distance relationship between Jacksonville and Oklahoma, where Ali’s residency took him.
They were planning a multicultural wedding. Marielle is catholic and wanted a catholic ceremony at Immaculate Conception Church. Ali is Persian and had many family members fly in from overseas to be there to watch their special day. Their persian ceremony and reception was at the Florida Yacht Club. The day was beautiful and their love just rang through their entire day.
Ali and Marielle – Your wedding day was a dream come true! I’m so happy to have had the honor to be your photographer. I’m so privileged to have gotten to know you both and I’m SOOOO excited that you’re off to starting your family! I can’t wait to meet little baby Amoli!! XOXO
