if there wasn’t something to the sentiment of “a couple who laughs together stays together” i am pretty sure it wouldn’t be one of the most used phrases ever. and because i firmly believe in this thought, i am absolutely certain that forever is not only their future, but that it’s also going to be a truly magnificent ride getting there for them too. the love that pours out of their souls to each other + to their people is something that had me in awe all day. i’ve never met a couple like them ever, a couple so comfortable with every part of who they are that you can’t help but LOVE being in their presence. we’ve got brandon, the quick witted jokester delivering the best comebacks ever one minute, and being completely sweet on his bride the next. i could go on and on about toni and how she’s one of the most incredible humans i’ve ever met! she’s as beautiful as she is funny, and she has a heart of pure gold.
they hosted a beautiful + intimate wedding at Emerson Creek Pottery + Tea Room, and they filled the space with personal + rustic touches that exuded so much love. a rainstorm brought the ceremony inside where i found myself chasing light in ways i’ve never experienced, simply because i was swept away with everyone else who watched on as these two promised forever to each other. all thoughts of technicality left my mind from the moment i took the first frame of the day, and for the rest of the day i was in the throws of this beautiful love story. shooting with everything i was made of, and feeling all of the feels so intensely.
and the CAKE! it’ll speak for itself! i think i talk about wedding cake too much…
there was one tough part of the day, and that was the realization that this was the last of the Barren Girl weddings! i was so fortunate to have been the photographer for two out of three! i can’t believe it’s over, that they’re all married to their wonderful husbands and my job is sadly done! …but then i remembered something, …BABIES. hello!! not just any babies, barren girl babies, i can’t even… but no rush! ha!
alright alright, i’ll go ahead + quit my rambling so you can get to the good good!
