Happy New Year!

We couldn't think of a better way to spend New Year's Eve than with Maya and Neal as they made their marriage covenant before God, family and friends.

The day started with Mo, Maya's dad, seeing his daughter for the first time in her wedding gown - it was one of the most tender moments we've ever photographed. Then, after Neal saw his bride for the first time, we took the wedding party to campus, where the two first met. Although it was unseasonably mild, it was still chilly for the bridesmaids - but they willingly smiled for all kinds of fun photos without any complaint - thanks, girls!

Back at the church, Maya and Neal made the commitment to serve one another and glorify God in all they do. Once they were pronounced husband and wife, we were off to the Thompson Center for an evening of partying! The winter wonderland was complete with beautiful snowy details and a donut cake for Neal...since he is an OPD officer. Just before the stroke of midnight, the DJ asked everyone to grab a glass of champagne and we rung in the new year to Auld Lang Syne. Cheers to Mr. and Mrs. Bonacci!
