I’m just going to come right out and say it: there is nothing better than Sarah’s smile. You can not imagine what joy it is to document a couple who exudes happiness. I must acknowledge though, I am biased. You see, I loved these two from the moment I met them. The first few seconds when I sat at Sarah’s moms house and talked to them about their wedding dreams, I knew this was a family with big plans and even bigger hearts. That their day would be one of genuine emotion and nonstop fun.
First off, we all are alums of the same college, so I knew Sarah and Ben were my kind of peeps! Secondly, their engagement session was beyond gorgeous. Finally, look at them. Can’t you just tell they’re sweet, fun and uplifting people? Sarah and Ben didn’t stop smiling. Their enthusiasm was contagious and I didn’t want the day to end.
A few favorites from their wedding…
Sarah incorporated her mom’s wedding veil into the base of the bouquet, so I had to grab her mother’s hands for a second and let her show off the fine lace.
I love Sarah’s bridal portraits. She can be timelessly elegant one second and playful the next…
The autumn light and color was gorgeous at Green Lakes State Park…
The formal dances get me every time…
The reception? I can’t even begin to explain…it was so much fun from start to finish! I laughed so hard I was sore the next day!
And the last dance shot…because I believe this is as important as the first…
Sarah and Ben, you are a gift! I am so honored I was able to document your love, commitment and unbelievably amazing day!
