I'm always amazed when I arrive with my black rolley bag on a wedding day.
Without fail, I'm taken aback by the ability of my brides and grooms to bring to life a vision they've been nurturing for months—years even.
In the first 8 minutes my astonishment ranged from a bridal suite so beautiful, buoyant with bridesmaid energy; to the ceremony backdrop Rachel spent months creating out of paper and string; to wanting to wear every single bridesmaids dress for the day and drink breakfast cocktails in a perpetual toast of happiness.
+ Story of my life for the next 8 hours.
How welcoming everyone was. How joyful. What he wrote. When he cried. What they said. How they looked. How they looked at each other. What a perfect song. That light. The romantic mood. How I turned to putty in the face of all this combined with one of the most brilliant golden hours I've ever been blessed with. (In this case, you're allowed to skip to the bottom before coming back up to scroll it all in its entirety. It's okay, I get it.)
+ OH, what a brilliant day.
Congrats, Brian + Rachel! :*
