Today, I’m sharing a very special post because it’s super rare. I don’t typically photograph weddings but sometimes the stars line up in a magical way. And when that happens, it’s nearly impossible to say “no.” Even though I’m not a “wedding photographer” and even though I would be in my third trimester–this was a case where “yes” was the only answer that made sense. (It does help having a super organized bride!)
You may remember Aaron and Laura from their engagement session or from Laura’s bridal photos. In fact, to understand why I might refer to this as the “wedding of the century,” you might just want to review their little story here.
To say Laura and Aaron are loved by their family and friends is an understatement. It was an honor to spend the day with them in such an intimate way. I can’t help but think that my favorite wedding sentiment will be true for them.
My greatest wish for the two of you is that through the years your love for each other will so deepen and grow, that years from now you will look back on this day, your wedding day, as the day you loved each other the least.
Here’s a brief overview of the day as seen through my eyes and the eyes of our second photographer, the fabulous Mitchell Scott Danforth. (By the way, Mitch is the true jack of all trades. If you need a website redesign, a room transformed, or you’d just like to see what a plaid wall might look like (really!!), head over to his website. I dare you not to be impressed.)
