The Levanites take on Settles Hill!

FILED IN: Weddings

Michael and Mia Levanites’ wedding at Settles Hill in Altamont was one for the record books! Everything was thrown at us during their wedding; from a last minute 2nd shooter, to a sudden downpour right before the bride and groom portraits, to cold temperatures blowing in and forcing us to shoot as fast as possible. None of these things deterred Mike and Mia from basking in each others’ love.

Their wedding was a long time coming! Together for 12 years, they decided to make it official on 10.06.18. From our initial meeting at the Latham Panera, to a week later at the Glenville Panera where we signed the contract, we’ve had nothing but laughs! I felt like I’d known these 2 forever; could be myself in front of them and not worry that what came out of my mouth would offend them or get them mad. I can’t begin to count the number of texts, emails, FB posts/replies the 3 of us have had over the last year.

Michael, my husband, Jeff, and I even conspired to surprise Mia with a poster-size mounted print of Cape Hatteras (where Michael proposed to Mia) with their 1st dance song lyrics superimposed on the print. Very sneaky, but seeing her reaction was priceless! Hard to surprise someone you’ve been with for so long without them becoming suspicious. Well played, Mr. Levanites!!

With all my wedding couples, I honestly feel like we’re friends by the end of our time together. Mostly it’s the bride and myself bonding more, but working so closely with Michael on Mia’s surprise really brought us closer. I loved hearing about their trips to various lighthouses and beaches (hence their ‘Beach in the Fall’ and ‘Lighthouse’ themed wedding). There mini moon to Atlantic City certainly shows their love of the ocean.

Can’t wait to continue our friendship, and for them to meet Jeff! They think he’s like the Wizard of Oz, editing and creating beautiful products for couples behind the curtain! We’ll get together soon, Mr. & Mrs. Levanites, and raise a glass to your first month of marriage!! Happiness always, laugh lots, and love each other like it’s always 10.06.18!!!!
