(you can see part 1 right here..) we had touch and go weather all day. at the end of the ceremony, after we got done with their pictures, the dark clouds parted and a giant double rainbow brushed across the sky. they climbed the silo and just held each other, with all their friends and family looking on. it was absolutely beautiful.
there were so many wonderful moments during their day that i can't even remember half of them. it was just a priceless collection of moments that truly reminded me of how a wedding day is supposed to go: drama-free, light-hearted and truly about the couple and their union. in fact, my favorite moment was a sweet time after they did communion, exchanged vows and were announced as husband and wife: the entire crowd erupted in applause and cheered for them. they have a giant and awesome network of loving family and friends (who have since totally embraced me. i'm lookin' at you, shannon!)
my words are failing me, so i'll end with this: sam, the second you turned to me and said "you're not just our photographer, you're our friend." - that's when it all made sense. the day fell together into beautiful pieces and my heart swelled with love for you and your bride. thank you to you both for embracing me, my weirdness, my pup, and wanting to love me and be my friend. i'm so grateful for you!
(huge thank you erica serrano for shooting alongside me. you're the absolute best.)
