Rebecca and Mike are just right for each other. They both seem to take everything with ease, staying relaxed and enjoying themselves all day long at their wedding. When I put them together they did nothing but smile at each other, a wonderfully easy couple to photograph. They put together a beautiful wedding and I'll let them tell you a bit more about their day. Congratulations to you both and thank you for having me document your day, Ray.

It was great having a first look. It was the only time we were alone for three days.- Mike

It was so reassuring to hear his voice behind me and to spend a minute together before all the craziness started.- Rebecca

Since there were 5 groomsmen, we took an "offensive line" photo.- Mike

I loved the photos we took together before the ceremony. It was really fun to spend some time just the two of us with Ray in the Independence Park Rose Garden, which is so beautiful.- Rebecca

Walking down the aisle was still really special. I was trying to take in all the people around me and enjoy the moment with my parents. It was also really nice to be with Mike backstage right before the ceremony.- Rebecca

The whole reception was really fun, but I especially loved the hora. It was scary to be lifted up in the chairs but also kind of thrilling, and I was so happy to see my family and friends taking part in this Jewish tradition.- Rebecca

It was fun dancing with my friends, especially to Dragostei Din Tei- a Moldovan song that was really popular in Europe when most of us studied abroad.- Mike
