Sarah + Mike were married over the Fourth of July weekend to celebrate their deep love for one another. It’s a beautiful thing to see two people who “get” each other on a “soul” level and declare their love for each other. It kind of spills on to the people around you. And that’s the stuff you need when things don’t quite go as expected, like when your photographer doesn’t bring a print for the sign-in table (yep, that would be me) or when you and all the guests are waiting for a fireworks display that never materializes. Fortunately, my lovely wife did some fantastic remote work 200 miles away and found a way to deliver a print from a local one-hour photo, and we decided to make our own fireworks show with sparklers and a little light writing.
My favorite part of the day was the reception — surrounded by beautiful light and décor, it was a magical atmosphere. The DJ was outstanding (and so was the limo driver who was the same guy who helped during the shoot on my last wedding), the first dances were graceful and timeless, the toasts were deeply touching, and everyone had an amazing good time at the super-cool-ringlight-photobooth with Corrie. But all the moments of the day (both good and bad) pale in comparison to the significance of what we all witnessed: the beginnings of a loving marriage. Congratulations Sarah and Mike!
