She’s breathtaking, in personality and appearance, and known everywhere she goes. She is a writer, an artist, a traveler, a student. Tina has been the closest thing to a sister for me. We’ve grown up together, colored our hair together, sipped wine under the Eiffel Tower together, wiped tears from each others eyes, and laughed in the ugly, deep, unending way. She stood as a maid of honor in my wedding, so to watch this sister marry the man she so loves was an experience I’ll never, ever forget.
It didn’t surprise me Tina and Steve met in a restaurant setting. As luck would have it, her love for fine food is now eternally satisfied with Steve’s incredible talents as a chef. The morning of the wedding, Steve readied himself, wanting everything to be perfect for his bride. He told anyone with an ear what a lucky man he was, and patiently trekked through cold and snow to see Tina before the ceremony. Meanwhile, in her suite at the Grand, Tina finished writing her vows, prepared both wedding gowns, and packed what she’d need for the evening. Her heart fluttered with the anticipation that had built over months, so it was a sweet release when they saw one another for the first time. With a peace that fell tangibly over the room, she knew everything would be alright.
Tina+Steve :: I love you. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your day in the most special way I know how. I pray the best for you and your future as one!!
Tina is a collector of furs, and on such a cold day, I can think of nothing better to be wrapped in.
One of my favorite portraits, ever! Tina’s an amazing makeup artist, so of course her face was flawless!
Is this red gown not to DIE FOR?! Rickie Freeman for Teri Jon at Neiman Marcus.
Practicing their first dance.
Obsessed with how fabulous they are!
For the ceremony, Tina changed into her white wedding dress.
So in love with this and them!
