I am feeling especially blessed today. I am quite close to wrapping up edits for all of my summer weddings (which also means lots more blog posts coming!) and I have no plans this weekend! That may sound crazy to a lot of people but for the past 25 weekends I have had weddings, photo sessions, something to do and/or something already planned for me. Don't get me wrong, every one of those things were amazing! But the introverted side of me has been screaming at me to just be still and enjoy some solo time and time with friends (if they haven't disowned me yet). Oh and Spike would really love that too ;)
Speaking of friends, this couple deserves all the love and celebration in the world! When my sweet friends Christy and Cris asked me to photograph their wedding I was absolutely ecstatic! There is no greater honor to me than being able to photograph a friend's wedding. I am a-okay being a photographer over being a guest if it allows me to help you remember your wedding day in a way that is special to you. These two exchanged vows on the most beautiful misty morning (it's good luck and the light is beautiful!) at Ruffner Mountain Nature Preserve! Surrounded by family and friends, their ceremony and reception were a true testimony of the Lord's love. Christy exuded joy and beauty as she walked down the aisle to Cris. Every element of their wedding celebration included their family and friends, down to the food, setup, decor, music, etc. All these elements made the day even more special and genuine to Christy and Cris.
