This right here.
This is why I shoot weddings.
Two families coming together and opening up. In huge ways. To pour their love onto an exceptional couple. Marking the milestone on the highway of their life.
That’s what Jackie and Steph’s wedding was.
It was a true celebration. Filled with heart wrenching speeches given by friends and family who have watched them grow and couldn’t be happier with where they have come.
You could see it. The joy. The true joy.
This loving family welcomed me into their celebration to the point where I felt like I was more a part of the wedding party than I was an onlooker. I was documenting the day, but in a wonderful way, I was also a part of it. And I couldn’t be more thankful for that.
I drove away from this weeding with cheeks sore from smiling, legs tired from dancing and a heart full of love.
And that’s exactly how it should be.
