We are so incredibly blessed by our career in wedding and engagement photography. It allows us to constantly be meeting couples that are head over heals for each other. It gives my wife and I an even greater appreciation for each other. Each and every couple we are blessed with the opportunity to work with reminds us of the true beauty of love. Upon meeting Don and Mary for their consultation, we knew this couple would be no exception.
We began our coverage on this beautiful day at the Hacienda much in the same way as our groom. We stood in beautiful courtyard surrounded by Don and Mary's friends and family. We eagerly waited for Mary to come through the ivy trailed arch way and begin her walk past the rushing fountain to her waiting husband to be. In no time at all the music quieted then changed. Enter Mary. My wife had been with our bride only minutes before in the bridal suite. Don however had not. His face was instantly filled with joy and astonishment at the beauty of his bride. After a heart felt ceremony and powerful vows the two turned to face all that were gathered for the first time as man and wife. They exited to applause and celebration. After the guests headed to the cocktail hour it was time for portraits and champagne.
After picture perfect portraits with close family,our newly weds followed us to one of the lovely nooks the Hacienda has to offer. We captured sensational images of our couple tucked away amongst the ivy. The two took a short evening stroll down the tree lined walk ways and took this opportunity to show off the bride's rose filled bouquet. Before we knew it, it was time for the couple's grand entrance and for the reception to kick into full swing.
The two graced the laughter filled hours of the evening with a lovely and heart warming first dance. The had their arms around each other. Mary's head rested on her husband's shoulder, quietly conveying the the love that exists between the two. Surrounded by their family and friends the two traveled form wonderful moment to wonderful moment. The cake cutting, the bouquet toss, the garter hunt, each filled this evening with joy. The lively dancing gave wonderful and smile filled movements. Each step through this fairytail of an evening reminded all present that true love is a powerful and beautiful thing. We are blessed to have witnessed it. Thank you Don and Mary. May God richly bless you and your love forever.
