Amanda & Nick {Wedding Day}

She understands him. He’s quiet, understated, and definitely not an open book. He understands her. She’s also quiet, kind, and understanding. They love one another not only for their obvious enjoyable qualities, but for the qualities that are their unspoken traits that bind them tighter because they embrace wholeheartedly who the other is and is not. Its a combination that works, and that’s what a marriage really is. A mixture, blend, a fusion of two people who when combined… make perfect sense. Enjoy Amanda & Nick’s wedding day.

There can be weddings that just feel like any ol’ day. Not a ton of excitement or fanfare, just going through the motions. But sometimes, there are wedding days like Stacy & Nate’s. Where the minute you open the door to the church your hairs stand on end with excitement, and there is an excitement that fills every room. I can remember going to weddings when I was young and feeling the impact of how momentous the occasion was. Through youthful eyes every wedding is a fairytale come true. On this day, waiting for Stacy to walk down the aisle – it was as if seeing a wedding through those same youthful eyes again. The day, the couple, the families and friends were all perfectly as they should be – filled with joy, love, and excitement. A true life fairytale. A day that dreams are made of.

Mary & Tod

Mary & Tod are each separately endearing, charming, relatable, kind, and gracious. Together, they are all these things plus respectful, courteous, and supportive to one another and to all they meet. They are inspiring. There are plenty of types of loves out there – puppy love, love/hate, young love, past loves, crazy love. But what Mary & Tod have is what I would define as true love. It’s not flashy, its not in your face, it’s just real, and deep, and the kind of love you wish for anyone you care for in life. Because that love is truly never ending.
