The Spring air and freshly bloomed cherry blossoms painted the perfect scene for this sweet day. The air was just as light amongst the girls and our bride Haley upon our arrival as they chatted and buzzed about. Haley is the kind of bride that you dream of working with. Kind and so incredibly thoughtful (she gave me the most adorable mug with my new business name and a camera design at HER wedding because she knew I loved coffee!) Haley was calm and collected, even in spite of a hard week that lead up to the day. Even in spite of a veil that took on a mind of its own, fluttering around like a ribbon wand as she and her Dad walked down the aisle (that he so lovingly tried to tame for her - Dads. :o) ). She thoughtfully administered gifts just before the ceremony to her family with words that summed up her heart and gratitude to them for all that they had done for her. She and was poised and beautiful and so visibly thankful to be marrying the man of her dreams that day.
The day centered on love, laughter and lightheartedness. It was a backyard type of affair with delicious barbecue, cocktails and awesome dance moves. But above all, the focus was entirely on Haley and Josh and the beginning to a lovely life together. There was joy, and it lit up each of their excited guests.
The day went off without a hitch, and for me that was a lot because of my sweet friend, fellow photographer and associate that day, miss Abby! Thank you times 800 million for your assistance, modelling in chairs, keeping time, juggling 42 lenses at any given time, and really bringing your beautifully creative eye to the table, so evident in your captures that day. Such a joy and an inspiration to work alongside you, lady!
Congratulations to the newest Mr. & Mrs.!
And a big thank you to those that made the day even more awesome!:
