Sarah and Donnie | Omni William Penn Wedding

Peeking our heads into Sarah’s getting ready room at the Omni William Penn hotel, we hear Sarah and her bridesmaids laughing and talking with a flurry of anticipation for the big day.  Once Sarah stepped into her wedding dress, it was as if she had a whole new sparkle in her eyes.   This sparkle is completely evident in her pictures, she honestly glowed throughout the day!  And so did her sweet beau, Donnie!  As we took his pictures prior to the ceremony, his gentle demeanor couldn’t hide his excitement to be married to his best friend.  They are happily in love, and it is completely obvious how perfect they are for each other.

One of my favorite parts of the day was at the ceremony, witnessing Donnie and Sarah’s union as Donnie’s best friend officiated.  I literally got a tear in my eye seeing Sarah and Donnie standing in front of their beloved friend, saying their vows, and watching the elated expressions on Sarah and Donnie’s faces as their close friend united them.  It was truly meaningful.  There were so many other special moments during this day that made me stop and take it all in: the tear in Donnie’s mother’s eye as she slow danced with her son, the huge hug Sarah and her father shared after the Father Daughter dance, the sentimental tears Sarah’s sister had as she gave her toast.  It was such a beautiful and heartfelt day!  Take a look to see what I mean…
