“Please take these sandwiches and make sure you eat on the way to the ceremony!” Laura, one of the sweetest brides we’ve had the pleasure of working with, runs into her house in her wedding dress, and comes back out carrying ham sandwiches, NuGo Bars, and two drinks. She scurries across her front yard and passes the food to us through our car window. We had just finished photographing her getting ready pictures, and honestly felt like royalty for how hospitable she was being to us! But that’s just Laura inside and out- the type of friend anyone would want to have because she genuinely cares about their well being. She is the bride that helps her bridesmaids get ready on her wedding day, being just as excited to see them in their dresses as she was to put her own dress on.
It was so sweet to watch Dan’s excitement throughout the wedding day. His subtle smile spoke volumes as he watched Laura walk down the aisle. His grin kept getting bigger as each step brought her closer to him. A few times during the ceremony, I caught him glancing to the left at his beautiful bride, with that same smile of excitement, and love. As we took pictures of Laura and Dan together, the little moments of kisses in between pictures warmed my heart. Without being asked, Dan helped Laura walk in between picture taking spots by picking up the train of her dress in one hand and covering her with the umbrella with his other hand. Sweet little interactions. The love these two have for each other is obvious, and we were the lucky ones to have a part in capturing it on their wedding day.
