Millie + Mike | Isla Mujeres, Mexico wedding
Millie and Mike are two of the sweetest people I know. I first met them last year when Mike proposed to Millie on The Today Show (Millie is a graphic designer for NBC). And over the last few months I have been working for Millie's sister Maria photographing Multiple Sclerosis events for her company. So immediately I felt very at home with everyone at the wedding.
Millie and Maria's dad passed away five years ago, so the rehearsal dinner slide show featuring him was really emotional for everyone. But Millie said she could feel him there, and I definitely believe her. I am really glad I got to be there too.
And there is a photo below of Millie playing guitar. Since Mike surprised her by proposing on television, she decided to surprise him by singing a song to him at the reception. But up until a month ago, she had never sang or played the guitar. So she secretly took guitar and singing lessons before the wedding. She would even take her guitar on the train to work each day practicing each way for one hour. She played beautifully.
The slide show is below with the play button in the middle of the photo.
