Millie and Minerva - Fourth of July Wedding

I still remember the first time I spoke with Millie and Minerva on the phone as they were looking to hire a wedding photographer for their July 4th wedding.  Their personalities are so charismatic that I couldn't help but be drawn to their energy.  I'm so honored that they chose me for their special day.  The beauty of their love radiates in such a way that you can't help but feel privileged and all giddy inside to be allowed to witness it.

Millie and Minerva have been together for 30 years and were now so excited to be able to make their union "official"!  When we met in person, I remember watching as Minerva and Millie looked at each other, finished each other's sentences and just beamed with joy as they told me the story of how Minerva proposed to Millie with a day full of surprises and by having their family involved. I felt like I couldn't wait to be a part of it all in some small way.

Minerva wanted to gift Millie with live fireworks on their wedding day and so they decided to get married on board Yacht Lady Windridge surrounded by their loved ones as we watched the Macy's Fourth of July fireworks.  It was amazing!

A special thanks to Nancee from Yachts For All Seasons for your professionalism and help with coordinating and running everything so smoothly.  Also, a huge thanks to DJ Bentley and DJ Legend from Premier Music Entertainment - you always do such an amazing job and get the party going!

And because pictures speak louder than words, here are some of the night's highlights:


  1. What a great day! I loved every moment. Everyone had a great time celebrating the life, love and small moments Millie and Minerva shared.
    Love always,

  2. The pictures are just beautiful! I know that this union will be forever, after all my sister and sister-in-law have already been together for 30 years! I know firsthand how dedicated they are to each other! Love them so much! My tiny little insects (inside joke). Love, Lillian
