Lavish Multicultural Same Sex Wedding at Rosecliff Mansion
Tim and Jonathan (Yoni) were married at Rosecliff in November of 2019. It’s almost their one year anniversary… happy anniversary you two love birds!
T + Y fully embraced the rich fall colors and textures. Every choice they made was planned, discussed, agonized over, and thoughtfully executed. Their meticulous attention to detail not only shows, but shines from every corner of their wedding! Planning this party was a real labor of love for Tim and Yoni, and we benefited by having one of the most gorgeous ballrooms to photograph that we’ve ever laid eyes or lenses on.
These are our other vendor friends who made Tim and Yoni’s dream wedding vision come to life!

Showing Love and Gratitude.
T + Y are such good sons! This moment was so moving.
Arriving … soon to be married at Rosecliff!
That late afternoon autumn light! It’s perfection!
T + Y arrived a few minutes before everyone else so we had “alone time” to stroll around for photos.
I think it was nice for them to have a few minutes before the madness ensued! LOL, Soak it in boys! Things are about to get crazy!
Bridal Party Time!
This is actually a fun kind of madness…
I love this photo so much. T + Y’s friends are the best.
Cuteness, please! I can’t with these kids!

Cocktails and Details
Oh. My. Gorgeous!
Seriously, that cake!
The details! It was a visual overload!
I remember running around, snapping and sweating like made trying to capture every last detail!
There was just so much! Sayles nailed it! Tim and Yoni’s inspiration was Old Dutch Masters paintings.
Being at this table truly felt like being inside a painting; it was a feast for the eyes and for the palette.

But, these two stole the show.
Yoni’s mom was a good sport! No moms were harmed in the making of this hora!

I held off blogging Tim and Yoni’s wedding because Trish entered it into several of PPA’s (Professional Photographer of America) print competitions in the Album Design Category. Well, guess what? It scored a 95 at State Level and won the Judges Choice and Court of Honor Awards. It also merited at the National Level, which is a big deal if you are a photo-geek like us! Trish is a fabulous album designer and with these moving photographs, how could we lose? It was worth the wait to share these photographs and the message, “Love is Love,” with our peers and with you. Here is the stunning album Trish designed that WOW’d the judges… Enjoy!
