Just when I think my 2016 wedding season couldn’t get any better…. It does! I just loved spending Rachel and Derek’s wedding day with them. There were so many moments that I adored. From the moment Rachel put on her dress…the feeling of excitement and joy was so tangible….. then a touching first look, the fun had with family and friends, a super sweet ceremony, the guests passing the rings and putting their blessings on it, gorgeous light and sweet moments between Rachel and Derek, yard games, speeches that left me in tears (I’m sure I wasn’t the only one), and one rocking dance party….. the day was just great, from beginning to end.
I say it all the time, but what is so special to me about each and every wedding I shoot is the sweet memories and moments that are specific and individual to each couple. Moments that you can’t replicate, not even if you tried. Nothing that you can find on a pinterest board and make happen. Just moments and connections that HAPPEN because of the couple, their family and their day. THAT is what I love about weddings and about people, and about LIFE.
Rachel and Derek, thank you so much for allowing me to document your moments for you. It was so much fun! I loved going to Quivey's Grove too (what a cool old stone house, which an awesome tunnel....and great grounds), I always love shooting at a place that is new to me!
Thanks to to Kaity Smith for shooting with me!!
