Erin + Mike: Love Conquers All

When we received Erin + Mike’s wedding, not only were we blown away by the photos (all of which are incredible!), but we were also impacted by the story of their big day. Originally the pair had planned an amazing outdoor ceremony at their favorite New Jersey lake, but with their wedding date in October of this past year, Hurricane Sandy had other plans! With evacuation looming overhead and Mother Nature’s special brand of havoc swirling ever closer, it would be enough to dishearten any couple! But Erin + Mike’s love conquered it all. From their first look and beyond, it’s clear that love is the only thing on both of their minds. And, I’m sure it’s going to be the only thing on your mind too when you see their beautiful autumn wedding with pops of colors, delicate fall leaves and a pair of some of the most amazing wedding shoes ever!
