My heart is so full. I just got home from photographing the wedding of a dear friend Toby and his fiancee from Germany. This wedding ignited my passion for weddings even more. It was a simple and intimate ceremony but set in a gorgeous location surrounded by friends and family.
Toby had been living in Germany and I hadn't seen him in years. I had never met his fiancee or his son, Liam, until the day of the wedding but that didn't stop me from tearing up during the ceremony!
It was amazing to see how they had prepared so well for the moments ahead and chosen to keep it between family. They even set up FaceTime for her family in Germany to livestream the ceremony. They had their wedding bands made by local McTeigue & McClelland Jewelers.
You could tell by their smiles and the way they looked at each other that they are ready for a life together. Those relationships are so beautiful. It's exactly that kind of devotion to each other that makes me appreciate life and photograph weddings.
I'm so happy I got to be a part of the day and not only did the rain hold off but Germany won their game to advance in the FIFA World Cup!
