What a beautiful wedding. Simply stated but oh so true. With vendors such as Twigs and Posies, Ansley Events and Design, kreatid photography (partner for weddings aka Jen my sister ) and the d.j. from Elite DJ and entertainment…made for such an incredible honor for me to be part of an amazing group of professionals. The details…ah, I was in love with the retro bikes, tin cans in different shades of gold, succulents and gorgeous tones of peach flowers as centerpieces inside painted wine bottles and mason jars, white lights that were strung up inside the beautiful tent, chalkboard signs…details…as I said the details were amazing. 🙂 And while all that effort went into making a gorgeous wedding…what stood out to me the most was this beautiful couple.
I will never forget that first moment Mike sees April for the first time. If ever just a first look could bring a man to his knees…ah, it was this one. He was swept away by her. Her happiness was so obvious…love, simply found in the beginning of the rest of their lives..a first moment that I’m sure they will both remember for a long time. And there was something so beautiful about his ability to just be in the moment to let April see how much he loves her. All day long Mike and April…their happiness so expressed in little moments that was just between the two of them…or with their amazing group of friends. Loved the way they teased, cried and hugged on this couple. Surrounded by people who I know will continue to support and encourage them in the next phase of their life.
As Jen and I were taking photos of April and her bridesmaids getting ready… April’s mom looks at me with happy tears in her eyes and says, “you have the best job.” And I could not agree with her more. That stayed with me through out the day as I watched this beautiful and incredibly expressive couple get married. It was a day where their friends and family gathered and celebrated.
So here are a few photos from that gorgeous day! Congrats again Mike and April…it was such an honor for me to be part of your incredible day.
