To continue with the “Best of Choco 2009” series we are posting our favorite details shots. We absolutely love shooting details! Dresses, ties, rings, flowers, all kinds of decor and every tiny detail – we know how much time and energy goes to planning them out. Beautiful details make the wedding day special and personal, really showing off the personalities of our brides and grooms.

Here are some of our favorites from last year:
