I learned Nick and Chandra’s story during our engagement session. They met several times before the attraction really “stuck” and they started dating. I wish I could’ve been a fly on the wall during the Taboo Party they told me about. I have a feeling it would have been fun to watch the chemistry. :) I learned about the things they love: their cats, fine food, beverages, entertainment and philosophy. And of course, each other.
Their wedding day was a near perfect day, a warm October day at a lovely park with a downtown view and a wedding venue attached. I love warm October days. Heck. I just love October. Don’t you?
They opted for a first look…. I love those. I love the anticipation of seeing each other …
and I ADORE watching the nerves just melt away when their eyes meet.
Lately, I’ve been feeling very…. nostalgic? thoughtful? poetic? I’m not sure how to describe my feelings but when I look at this image, I see a tenderness in the way he looks at her that is just precious. I see her eyes light up when she looks at him and it all just makes me so very grateful I get to do this job. And grateful you all trust me to document your precious memories. I’m humbled by that.
Ladies… a kiss on the hand…. are you swooning?
Loving this bouquet!
When we pulled into the venue. I noticed the bench by the big tree and couldn’t help but see it as an iconic spot for a wedding photo…. What I’m torn about is should it be black and white or color? What do you think? I love the color but there is just something about the black and white that draws me in….
Obviously, I’m a people watcher by nature. I couldn’t help but look around and notice the love: people cuddled up, hands touching, hands being held. Weddings bring out the love in people. They make you cherish the people in your life. That’s such a good thing.
Thank you Mr. Minister for stepping aside while they kissed. :)
A little first dance lovin’….
And eventually, the night has to come to an end…..
Thank you so much for letting me be there on your special day! I wish you both the VERY best!!!
