They were to be married at City Hall with just their closest friends and immediate families. They weren’t interested in the usual traditions of weddings. All they wanted was something simple, intimate and significant. To say their vows amongst a special few in a place so beautiful, one wonders why everyone doesn’t get married there.
// It was on this day that I met Roxy and Jack in my home state of California. We finally were able to hug and jump up and down together rather than smile at each other from our laptops (cheers to Facetime). It was also on this day that I met their incredible friends and family who welcomed me so quickly it felt as though we had known each other for years. They embraced my boisterous ways, my sarcastic sense of humor and laughed endlessly with me.
I loved seeing how much they love Roxy and Jack and I could see the history between all of them. They reminded me of my own group of friends that I’ve grown up with and it felt like home. I remember thinking how grateful I am to have taken this path in photography. It never fails to bring me amazing people I just want to hold onto.
After spending two days with all of them – day 1 elopement, day 2 reception/party, I was so sad to leave. I just wanted to wrap them up and take them all back to Seattle with me. Fortunately, we have photos to look back on from such a special weekend. That my friends, no matter how small or simple your wedding may be, is why investing in a photographer you connect with and trust completely is worth it every time.
** Roxy and Jack, you two are magic. Thank you for letting me do my thing, treating me so wonderfully and bringing me into your world so effortlessly. We are one. Never forget.
