Best of 2012: And the Finalists Are….

February 20th, 2013

Well, it’s about that time.. we’ve just been amazed at all of the wonderful brides who have come back to share their Big Day with us with The Best of 2012 Wedding series. Our sincerest thanks to our brides, the photographers and those who have supported them with all of their lovely thoughts and comments.

It was a close race (even a few ties!), but we did narrow the contest down to five weddings, who received the most blog and Facebook comments. Congrats to the following brides.

Lauren and Andrew


Amberly and Erick


Kelly and Anthony


Erin and Brian


Now it’s time to find our winners! Once again, we’ll be counting blog comments¬† and Facebook posts. There are TWO ways to get votes:

  1. Comment on THIS blog post and tell us who should be declared the winner. :)
  2. Encourage your fans to become fans of our Facebook Page. This is for new fans only- have them “like” us over at and to count, they’ll need to post on our Facebook wall and let us know!

The contest ends on Sunday February 24 at 11:59am, and then we’ll be back early next week with our winners. Remember- our first place winner will receive a $250 gift certificate to Zeus Gallery while our second place winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to Zeus Gallery.

Good luck to our brides!
