“Humans would sit around and stare at each other all day. Got very boring.” This is a quote from Scuttle the seagull in The Little Mermaid, and it’s what I overheard Patrick giggle to Sherrie as soon as we started their couple portraits on their wedding day. That quote is how I knew that Sherrie and Patrick were going to be the greatest start to my 2014 wedding season. Not only do I loooooooove The Little Mermaid (I mean hello, who doesn’t?) but it just showed how fun and easy-going they were going to be! A wedding that started on that high note for me only got better! Sherrie and Patrick told me they wanted a wedding that was based on fun, and laughter, and good booze, and amazing food and dancing…that’s exactly what they got! Theirs was a wedding not so steeped in tradition, but infused beautifully with their personalities: their favorite alcohol bottles served as decor and their dinner menu was filled the flavors they remember from their travels! It was truly chic and super fun at the same time, much like Sherrie and Patrick themselves. I am so glad that I go to be a part of their amazing day! Here are some of my favs…enjoy!!
