Our culture is filled with stories of couples who have to conquer whatever obstacles they face alone, and while I don’t doubt the strength of Haley and Matt’s love in the least, that’s not them. And that’s simply because they’re not alone. They were surrounded by close friends and even-closer families on their wedding day so much so that we were sure they wouldn’t ever been left alone to face the challenges they’ll face. Witnessing this is powerful, but it’s also a treat to photograph. And that’s about all there is to say–we thoroughly enjoyed photographing the love Haley and Matt shared and the love Haley, Matt, and all their friends and family shared. Our favorites:
The letter? From Haley.
Haley’s mom admiring her daughter.
Matt’s parents (and grandparents). Haley and her sister, who shared such a close relationship, sharing a short moment before the ceremony.
Grandpa, watching the pre-ceremony slideshow, and one of the flowergirls, “focusing” before show time.
Love this one.
After the ceremony, we spent some time on the church’s beautiful grounds–we love having something so beautiful right outside!
Beautiful. An all-time favorite bridal portrait.
Waiting to be announced…
And just before the first dance, we stepped outside the reception to take advantage of the sunset light…
…and I’m happy that it followed us inside for the first dance, too.
Haley’s brother and sister, and two of her nieces.
Love was certainly in the air!
We typically gravitate towards reception pictures other than the garter/bouquet toss, but couldn’t resist this one.
Thanks, Haley and Matt, for welcoming us into your beautiful wedding day! We were so glad to be a part of it.
