Logan + Yoni, Rodeph Shalom

Logan + Yoni married on a lovely autumn day at Rodeph Shalom.  Wedding was coordinated by Lynda Barness at  I Do Wedding Consulting.

Hi Rebecca, Logan happened to be home this weekend this morning she came into my room told me that the pictures were on your blog. She sat next to me and we went through them together. Well, I was just screaming in her ear the whole time about how much I loved them, how gorgeous she looked, and how I was totally blown away by your ability to capture such terrific expressions, scenery, love and excitement that the wedding embodied. I am looking at them, looking at them, and looking at them some more! Thank you for sharing these with us. The photo narrative brings back all of the joy of wedding weekend.

With gratitude~Roberta + Ira, Parents of the bride
