I love all of my couples, but there's something extra special about these two. I've known Manny for 8 years, back when we were both working for the same employer. We've seen each other grow in so many ways and I couldn't be happier for him than I am now. He's found his soulmate and life partner and she is AMAZING. Marlia is sweet, gentle, patient, and makes things happen. They keep each other motivated and push each other to be the best versions of themselves. Isn't that what every great partnership should do?
When they asked me to photograph their big day, I was so honored. I remember during our first Skype call they were just all smiles! I jokingly dubbed the couple "M Squared" and guess what? It stuck. Their wedding day hashtag was #MSquaredLove2016 <3
Manny and Marlia said "I do" and then enjoyed an evening with family and friends at Fellowship Church in Macedonia, right outside of Cleveland, OH. With Tiffany & Co. blue as their main color, everything was just beautiful. My favorite part of their ceremony was the feet washing ceremony. This was a very spiritual and loving part of the day, and to see them honor each other in that way was so sweet.
