In love, they walked hand in hand along the top of the bluff. As the sun set behind them a warm summer breeze gusted along the beach blowing her hair up around her face. Just then he leaned in and kissed her. It’s moments of magic and mystery like this that get etched in your mind as a forever image. An image that strikes that emotion in your heart every time you see it. This is what I love.
Last weekend we had the joy of shooting Dustin & Megan’s beautiful wedding! Their ceremony was facing a giant majestic oak tree surrounded by gorgeous floral arrangements chosen by the groom. During the reception, the bride’s parents presented them with a family Bible – I love this idea and would love to do the same with my kids one day!
Thank you two for having us as a part of your day! We are so excited to see how God uses your marriage for Him!
Shawn & Teresa had so many moments throughout their day that I actually teared up on. And no it wasn’t just because I’m pregnant. Although the hormones may have helped a teeny bit ;) During their vows, Teresa’s words gave me and Lukas a glimpse into their relationship and the bumps along the way to get to where they are today. Bumps that everyone goes through, that makes your bond stronger. And then it was Shawn’s turn for the vows and it took him two minutes to start talking because he kept choking up. So sweet.
During the reception, Shawn made the announcement that he and his bride were moving forward in their family by taking on his adopted dad’s last name. And how his dad was a role model for how to love your wife. When I saw his dad’s expression that is when I really started getting teary eyed.
Shawn and Teresa, you are a fabulous couple and I am so excited to have been there and capture those special moments on the first day of your wedded journey! Thank you for having us be a part!
