It doesn't matter where you are, what you're wearing, or how much you spent on your flowers, to me the most important thing you can bring to your wedding day is a heart full of love and a smile on your face. Don't get me wrong, I adore all of the pretty details that make a wedding day special, but it's the emotions of the day that really sweep me off of my feet.
Julie and Jennie's intimate wedding was held at Venue 222 downtown. About 50 of their closest friends and family came to help them celebrate and support their lifetime commitment to each other. They presented each other with very personalized vows with promises to not only love each other but to also give each other the space they need to grow, and to be present while enjoying their journey together. It was so heartfelt and their chemistry together is inspiring to be around. During the reception I stopped taking pictures for a minute and just let myself really enjoy what I was apart of. It was overwhelming. There were people laughing and enjoying themselves in every direction I looked. The joy in the room was explosive. During that moment, there was no where in the world I would rather be. I was experiencing right in front of me nothing but pure love and it felt great. As I floated back to my car I just sat and soaked in how lucky I am for these amazing people that let me tell a piece of their story.
Thank you to all of Jennie and Julie's friends who helped make the day perfect for the couple.
This is why I love when couples do a first look. You get to spend some time enjoying each other alone, and I get to capture it. :)
The cutest ring bearer ever. Julie and Jennie's very talented friend Nuria made the ring bearer bag and designed all of their flowers.
