It recently occurred to me that I had not posted a blog about any of the many wonderful weddings I’ve done this year. What a tragedy! Incredibly bizarre, as well, since weddings are one of my absolute favorite things to photograph. So, here I am with my first wedding of the year in January.
First things first, I LOVED this couple, Mitch and Morgan. They were super in love, super cute, super excited to be getting married and I loved it all superbly. I had such a good time when I first met them for coffee to talk about their wedding, it was like meeting up with old friends. I always enjoy this time because I get to talk with the couple or bride all about the little details and what they mean to them. This particular couple was planning the wedding that I would want. Yes, I’m already married, but I would get married to my husband every year if I could afford it and if he would let me just to have a new dress and new details.
They got married at Bethany Vineyards http://www.bethanyvineyards.com/, which is now one of my favorite places to photograph. It’s gorgeous there and Walt, the owner and Morgan’s uncle, is incredibly fun and hospitable. It was such a beautiful wedding and everyone was so moved by Mitch and Morgan, that even I was crying. It was perfect. This particular wedding was a wonderful example of why I love what I do, it is such an honor to be a part of one of the most important days in one’s life. I really feel humbled to have the opportunity to share that with my brides and grooms and to get to see things from such a unique and intimate perspective. With couples and families like these, I always end up feeling like part of the family, what a tremendous blessing.
