From the moment Emma & her mom walked into our studio, we loved them. They had just found Emma’s wedding dress (gorgeousness from The Bride Room!) and were so excited to be sharing such a special time together, mother & daughter, planning Emma’s wedding. I know it is a time they will cherish for the rest of their lives. So after falling in love with Emma & her mom, we were so excited to finally get to meet the equally wonderful Ryan for their engagement session out at Arrington Vineyards. What we weren’t expecting was the chance to meet some of Emma & Ryan’s amazing family as well. After we were done shooting, we all got to have a little wine & cheese picnic at the vineyards and as we sat there getting to know Emma & Ryan’s story through the eyes of their family, I just couldn’t help but think how blessed we are to be a part of documenting such a story. Not only for a bride & groom, but for the families that they bring together and for the future family they will share together. Emma & Ryan reminded me of that.
So let’s just say, after the time we got to spend together leading up to their wedding, we had pretty high expectations for the day. So it really should be no surprise that their wedding day was so much more.
I could tell you all about their story. How they met, the sacrifices they have had to make throughout their relationship, the amazing family & friends they share, so many wonderful things about these two people. But really, the beautiful things about their wedding day is that I think you can see all those things in these moments. Without a single. word.
