A wedding day is a story. It’s about two people, their lifestyle, their beliefs, their tastes, and their relationships with family and friends. The visual story of a wedding day becomes a significant part of family history in a way that very few other events do.
For Ben and Emily, family is huge (and I mean that literally and figuratively!). When I first met them, I also met Emily’s parents, and we sat and chatted for a long time about their wedding day, and about family. I thought that was pretty special, and I looked forward to their wedding for a long time.
This story is about two incredibly genuine and beautiful souls who created a celebration full of love and personality. It’s about family coming together and contributing to their celebration in many heartfelt ways. It’s about how even the ridiculous weather didn’t dampen the smiles and joy.
Emily made 1000 paper cranes, the amazing paper flower bouquets and several items on the sweets table. Her mother made the cake and handpainted Emily’s shoes. Family chipped in to make cupcakes that were shared about after the ceremony in a very wet park. The bridal party danced their way into the reception. Later in the night, the dancefloor was filled with family from at least 3 generations having an absolute ball together.
Emily and Ben, it was a joy and a pleasure to capture your story.
