Catching up on blogs and remembering this backyard wedding. Backyard weddings are wonderful— more people should have them. I photographed a book release party for Christina a few years prior and then a few months before her wedding, I received an email from a mutual friend because Christina was asking if I might be interested in photographing her wedding day as well. It was wonderfully relaxed and a true celebration of their love and the life they have built together. Also, their cat, Dulce, was the best man and if that’s not enough to melt your heart then I don’t know what is.
Was it a cold, wet day? Yes. My hands felt like both fire and ice. Was it one of the best most beautiful and loving ceremonies I’ve ever been to? Also yes. I only cried a lot. Kate and Sam tied the knot one month and 6 days ago and I’m still swooning over how pretty it all was. The ceremony was officiated by one of their very good friends under an arbor that Sam built. It was in a quiet wooded area and they were surrounded by those closest to them. It was an honor to be invited.
