As a photographer and as someone who works in the wedding industry, it's easy to get caught up in the details. The gorgeous florals, the diamond rings, the over-the-top invitation suites that take your breath away. All of those things make weddings unique and beautiful, but it's important to remember what really matters on a wedding day, and that's the two people coming together to join in matrimony. All of that being said, the details don't hurt. And this wedding in particular was one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever shot (thanks Heather Rowland for letting my tag along!). But what made it beautiful, besides the breathtaking reception and luxurious details, was the people. This couple had overcome adversity like none other and were so in love, and I remember walking away thinking wow. I wanted to go home and hug my husband because I was so overwhelmed with emotion. This wedding, though not my clients, gave me an appreciation for what really matters in weddings, what matters in life, and lit a fire in me that still rings true today when capturing people's most cherished memories. Take a look at some of the highlights from that beautiful day!
