Where do I even start with these two? Phil and Meredith love so well and it was evident in every aspect of their day. These are the kind of people you want to be around because their hearts and attitudes will make you happy and when they are together you know everything is as it should be. They are comfortable and kind and I am so glad I was able to be there to document this for them. Beautiful, elegant, intentional and personal, these are all words I would use to describe their day. Props to Hey Love Events, Nectar and Morning Glory Farms for being so awesome. Also their friends Carolina Story did the ceremony and first dance music and you guys, THEIR VOICES! Go check them out.
Daniel and Emily are two of the kindest people I have ever met. They are each others biggest cheerleaders, and its no doubt when you hear them talk that they have a deep love for each other. One that believes in and encourages. They decided to elope in the beautiful North Carolina mountains. Only a few people were presents but the atmosphere was so very full. There is something about an elopement that makes you take a deep breathe and really soak in every moment. Emily and I scoped out the ceremony spot the day before the wedding and hiked around a little to find picture locations. The vows were beautiful, and and emotional, and Emily and Daniel made a sacred promise to always choose to love and be each others forever ice cream eating partner. I loved getting to be there with them - to witness the words and all the love.
Wedding season is in full swing and I have been busy traveling and editing so many pretty things. Blogging has taken a back seat for a little while, but I wanted to share some of what has been on the other side of my lens lately. So many intimate moments I have been a part of, some of these will be burned in my memory forever...Like when Dina and Alex's guests cheered so loud for EVERYONE who walked down the aisle and when their entire family learned spanish so they could give a toast to her parents, or when Josh and Brooke held each other close after they eloped and drank in the memory they were creating, or when Rob and Jaderian got ready on a balcony suspended in the rain forrest and the rain came in like a flood. I loved talking to Brandon and Rob about their love for travel and all of the beautiful places they have adventured together, laughing when Phil and Meredith caught everyone peaking at them during their first look and crying with everyone when we honored Carrington's dad, who lost his battle with cancer. All of these and more are a part of me now.
A big thanks to all of you who let me share and connect with you. Cheers and Congratulations.
