There is nothing better than a pretty sunset. When the madness of the day is over and the speeches have been made, I love to take my couples back outside for a breather and a few sunset portraits where they can relax before the evening guests arrive.
I’ve had some gorgeous weddings this year and I’m so thankful to all my couples who booked me. I cannot wait for next years weddings and beautiful venues!
Australia, always finds a way to amaze me ✧ Umpherston sinkhole was originally a cave but erosion of the limestone due to the ocean caused the roof to collapse and it is now a sunken garden. We arrived just as the sun came out and the lighting was so magical. Have you ever been to a cenote? Check my stories to see more of the sinkhole!
Find someone who looks at you the way I’m looking at this coffee 🤤🤪😂 today’s my 5 year dating anniversary with Marat. Basically 5 years ago today I turned to him and said, “fine. I’ll be your girlfriend 😒🙄🔪”. To celebrate we went dancing and learned the samba. So much fun! When we were learning our wedding dance we had the best time ever so now for anniversary’s we go back to the same guy, Dragan at UWS Fred Astaire and have a lesson 🙌🏼💃🏼 us dancing on stories now!!!

Versuch nichts zu verändern in was du dich irgendwann verliebt hast. Wenn DICH etwas ärgert ändere etwas, aber ändere nicht deinen Partner. Du bist du, ich bin ich, gemeinsam wir, ich liebe dich...💚
Happy 4 years to the best man out there 💛💛💛💛 // 📸: @brian.edsall
RELATIONSHIPS: A message of experience, strength, and hope
If you’ve only met me within the past four years, you probably think I’ve had it easy with relationships and just got lucky with finding the perfect boyfriend. Yes, I would agree with you, Anthony IS perfect, but let me tell you it took many years of traumatizing relationships to finally allow myself to be loved by a good man. You can ask my long-time friends: I used to dig to the literal BOTTOM of the trash can for boys to date. Toxic, controlling, abusive, manipulative, immature, addictive - these are the words others have used to describe my former relationships. I remember Fordham University Psychological Services even documented one of my past relationships as “tumultuous.”
I confused intoxication for love and abuse for passion. It took me a long time to realize that I would find myself in these terrible relationships because I did not love or respect myself. Like many young women, I did not think I deserved to be treated well and I had a sick addiction to men who kept me down. It took time and therapy and support groups, but I was finally able to change these patterns of thinking and behavior and develop healthy relationships with people.
So my point of telling you all of this is: 1.) to let you know it was NOT always this good, and 2.) to instill hope for other women who struggle in relationships. If you find yourself in an unhealthy relationship, know you are not alone, and help is available to you. Know it gets better if you reach out and put in the work on yourself. It took me a long time to understand what a healthy relationship looks like, what actual love feels like. It was strange and different at first. But because of the strong women in my life who have built me up, I have developed a relationship with a man who treats me like the beautiful divine goddess I believe myself to be. Thank you for being one of the good ones @atantillo23 . You are the most kind, affectionate, humble, supportive partner one could ask for. I always say if the world had more Anthonys, it would be a much better place 💛
