Gina and Mike are two very cool cats. It was dancing that brought these two together, which is not super surprising since the pair have extensive background in dance. Their all-around awesomeness is not limited to winning allll the dancing awards. Mike currently rocks his job as a software developer and Gina has spent her days pushing for diversity within the tech industry and currently is head of communications and project manager for a nonprofit.
It was important to Gina and Mike that their day be relaxed. They wanted to spend time celebrating their friends and family, and they truly planned their timeline around this. We had a First Look and completed their portraits prior to the ceremony, so they were off to celebrate soon after they tied the knot (quite literally as they had a hand-tying ceremony). Because they are swing dancers, the day was obviously full of DANCING. It was a busy, spinning, whirlwind of a dancefloor. Their friends who work in music played their tunes, and Gina and Mike kept the laughter and smiles going till the sparklers burned out.
Gina and Mike, it was a joy to get to know you and photograph your day. I am so excited for the adventures (and cat cuddling!) that await you both! Congrats!!
