Polly and Rigel are amazing. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more laid-back bride and groom, ever.

      Their wedding was held at St. John’s church in Cedar Park, with the service indoors and a rockin’ white tent right outside. Polly crocheted all of the little boutonnieres that were later given away as wedding favors. It was a totally gorgeous afternoon!

      Beautiful wedding! Great capture.

      Did she make the red flowers? So sweet! And I do love that b&w where she’s showing the flower. Nice coverage!

      I love the knit boutonniere! lovely photos <3

      Wonderful work! They seem like such a sweet couple. <3

      Lovely, lovely! Such gorgeous photos.

      lovely photos and lovely storytelling!

      The first look and the first dance are seriously breathtaking moments! You captured this so beautifully!

      orthodox weddings are fascinating to me, so much tradition. beautiful coverage of the wedding. love the one of the bride looking at the groom .

      I love that first one. They are too sweet and happy!

      Lovely, and I absolutely love photographing orthodox ceremonies. There’s something really comforting and beautiful about rituals so old.

      Well done Elissa! I was wondering how this one went :) Looks like you rocked it!

      I agree with Emilia Jane, the one of me looking over my shoulder at Rigel has to be my favorite so far. :)

      This is perfect storytelling. So much love and heartfelt emotion pours through these photographs!

      Outstanding work and storytelling Elissa. You’ve captured some wonderful moments here.

      OH MY GOODNESS. The black and white of her looking over her shoulder at him!? I melt.
