His voice shook a bit as he spoke. The words were his own, and he had read them before, but this time was different. This time it was their wedding day. And this time, he was speaking to her as his bride.
And as he stood with her explaining all the ways she had changed him, she simply placed a hand on his arm. A small moment that said everything her voice would later.
The two of them seemed to freeze time for a moment in the garden that day. Each pausing to say their “I love you’s” in their own way, before heading off to say it in front of everyone who mattered . . . . .

Mark and Sandra are married! The two of them had a gorgeous wedding day that began with a sweet first look in the tea garden of the Vinoy and finished with an epic sparkler exit at the Sunset Ballroom. Sandra wore the most stunning gown, which had the dreamiest tulle straps she had custom made, and combined with her all white bouquet and classic Bella Belle Shoes she was the epitome of timeless perfection. Mark looked every bit as dapper, and when the two of them came together to exchange their letters that afternoon it was hard not to get a little teary right along with them.
Sandra arrived to the church in a dreamy vintage car, and then walked down the aisle on her mother’s arm. And after exchanging vows, the newlyweds hopped into the same car for a romantic ride to their reception. The grounds of the Sunset Ballroom were a perfect setting for some classic portraits we couldn’t love anymore. We snapped until the sun went down and then it was time to celebrate!
The reception was an epic party, complete with cold sparks during the first dance, a surprise robot dance party, and a sparkler exit after their romantically private last dance. From start to finish every bit of this day was just a dream and we’re so excited to share all our favorite parts of it!
Sandra and Mark, we have simply adored being a part of your sunset ballroom wedding adventure and we are already so excited to see what comes next!
Love + Laughs,
Sarah & Ben
