My partner and I had the distinct pleasure of photographing the wedding of Nicole+Justin, our last wedding of 2011. And what a lovely way to finish a fantastic year. We went to high school with the groom and a handful of their guests, making this wedding all that more special. It’s amazing to me to think back to the days of high school (10+ years ago…yikes!), how much we have all grown, matured…well, sort of.
Justin and I used to sit next to each other in Chemistry class. Back then I never would have dreamed I would be photographing weddings, let alone his. I actually thought I would be a doctor, perhaps a brain surgeon. Not so much :) But it reminds me how important it is to dream, at every age. For me, photographing weddings is a dream come true. For Nicole+Justin, it was finding each other.
Nicole+Justin’s wedding day was filled with dreams for their future, promises of love, support from family & friends, and memories to last a lifetime. And did I mention that Nicole was a stunner? To see her walk out and lay eyes on her groom was a brilliant moment; she was the definition of radiant. And the look on the groom’s face — pure delight.
A toast to the happy couple: May you remember forever the joys you felt that day, never forget to dream big and always be as lucky in life as you are in love.
