Once in a while, a wedding unfolds that seems tailored precisely to my preferences, as if someone consulted my ideal wedding checklist. Anita & Daniel's celebration at La Cotte was just that. Throughout the day, I couldn't help but envision how I would orchestrate my own wedding if given the chance again.

What made it stand out were moments like the bride and groom opting to mingle with their guests during canapés, dancing to the rhythm of a live marimba band, rather than disappearing for traditional bridal party photos. Their inclination toward only a handful of couple session photos resonated deeply with me. While I understand the allure of posed photos for some, I personally cherish the raw, unscripted essence of a wedding day—a narrative unfolding organically, punctuated by genuine human connections.

Moreover, the wedding exuded unparalleled elegance and beauty. Anita's choice of attire was nothing short of iconic, and the decor transported us into a dreamlike realm. Capturing each moment was an absolute joy, adding another layer of sweetness to an already delightful occasion.

I am grateful beyond words to have been a part of such a special celebration and to work with incredible suppliers… Shelley, Algria, Jeannette, Anja… so much love for all of you!!
