Many of my brides have commented at one time or another on how ironic it is that after months and months of careful, sometime grueling planning, the wedding day itself seems to go by in a flash. That as soon as the dress is on and it all sinks in, the next thing they know they are saying goodbye to their guests with their husbands (gasp!) by their sides. All of that seemingly endless design and organization, and the day itself is a whirlwind of activity. And it’s true!! (Which is one of the reasons photographs are SO important).
Which is why one of my favorite times of a wedding day is the time BEFORE the dress goes on. Watching a bride and groom and the men and women they love get ready for her wedding day is something entirely different and special in and of itself. The emotion, the energy of anticipation and the excitement that is shared by everybody make these moments so precious!!!
Julie and Shawn were so full of excited anticipation before their ceremony at Ashbury First United Methodist Church, that when he first saw her coming down the aisle, I was sure he was going split at the seams. Julie and Shawn were so. much. fun! Their reception at Irondequoit Country Club was stunning.
And I think this last image pretty much sums it up…the love and the laughter these two share. Julie and Shawn, thanks so much for sharing your day with me!
It’s October and the leaves are changing, the breeze is growing crisp and clean and my incredible mother has been putting this season’s apples to good use (P.S. My mom makes the BEST apple pies. EVER.)
School has started up again which means it’s that time…senior season has come to an end.
All the lovely young women I was lucky enough to work with this summer are back in school, applying for college, so excited to graduate and embrace the next stage of their lives. And let me tell you…these girls are going to take the world by storm.
I had such an amazing time working with my seniors this year!!! What a gorgeous, talented group!
Congratulations, Ladies!!! You rock my world.
