In my line of work, you get to travel a lot. You meet new people from all different walks of life. But nothing has the ability of being both unique and familiar as a hometown wedding.
I've known Madison and her family for several years and I was more than happy to capture her and Michael's big day.
Before the big day, I had told both Madison+Michael that I'm all about that connection - emotional, familial, friendship and that tears (of joy) were my biggest love when shooting weddings. They both assured me I would get my fill of tears, and they delivered...
Madison+Michael couldn't have asked for a better day for their wedding. The sun was shining, the sky was clear and everyone was working towards making sure everything was just right before heading to the church for the ceremony.
Afterwards, we drove to the Pines Resort - a beautiful place for wedding photos, and I caught all the love and laughter with friends and family.
After a bit of shooting, we all realized how hungry we were and that was our cue to head to the Legion for the reception and some supper... (and candy...)
The candy bar was delicious and the cakes were too. As you can see, they both had a little fun at each other's expense - welcome to married life lol!
Everywhere I looked I saw love, laughter, bonds of friendship and family. Good natured jokes and silent moments of solemn reflection peppered the day.
My deepest thanks to both Madison+Michael and their family for letting me be a part of their big day - may your marriage be full of joy and adventure!
