This is one of those weddings that is so full laughter and life that I can’t help but smile. And I definitely can’t help but fall in love with these two lovebirds – their love is contagious. Captured in a way only Diva Productions could, it’s a little sneak peak into their gorgeous wedding – and we are head over heels!

Our romance began two and a half years ago, through a mutual friend introduction in Chicago on St. Patricks Day. Out celebrating the holiday in true Chicago fashion. . . Micah’s famous last words were, “who is your friend?” Cassidy moved to Chicago three months later and we’ve been together ever since.
Micah is originally from Florida and grew up going to Amelia Island as a kid. Upon looking at the Ritz-Carlton there, we fell in love with the location! We loved the idea of all of our friends and family traveling to an island for our wedding weekend.
We are both very traditional and love the classic sort of style in addition to incorporating an “old Hollywood” vibe into the flowers and decor. We had draped crystals hanging over our Chupah, which turned out very beautiful.
Micah planned a surprise get away after the reception, which included a 1964 Rolls Royce that swept us away. We also wanted to include our favorite Jewish traditions, which included the breaking of the glass and the chair dance, amongst others. I absolutely loved my surprise at the end of the night! That was one of my favorite moments in the sneak peak. I also loved our entrance into the reception and having everyone join us on the dance floor to get the party started.
