When Desiree and Joseph came to my door to talk about photography, I was instantly drawn to them. We sat down across from one another and fell in love. I was captivated by their passion for one another, their art, their work, their family and friends who would surround them on their big day, and for the tremendous attention and respect they were giving to each and every detail would envelope the day. Desiree, a wonder woman in every making, is the modern day Martha. But her care and consideration go way beyond just DIY, it is an appreciation and cultivation of culture, history, and tradition. Both Joseph and Desiree are modern people living to appreciate and love all things old. Not in the rustic, vintage cliche, but more for the story, the impact, and the glory of something that has been treasured, passed on, or just lived in for a very long time. I am so happy that the glorious Style Me Pretty picked this wedding to showcase. Not only did Desiree’s mom embroider every guest’s name on their napkin, but each family member brought a beautiful dessert in honor of the couple. The details go on and on as you will see in the post Desiree+Joseph today on SMP.
