All week long everyone has been talking about the weather & the tropical storm turning into a depression. I really tried my best not to think about it & kept telling myself not to worry, everything will be okay. And you know what? It was more than okay. Even if it rained cats & dogs, nothing could of dimmed the light that was shining between Matthew & Bethany. If you know the couple personally, you will know exactly what I am talking about. After being together for a decade, their love CLEARLY grows by the day. They are an example of what two people who are completely crazy about each other should be.
I cried more than once during their day. The speeches, first dances & surprise singing guests did me in. You can tell that there is a community that supports this couple & stands by them whole heartedly. I had someone tell me at the wedding, if you don’t have a love like that, what’s the point in even getting married? They really are a fairy tale that does exist.
The happy couple landed in the Dominican Republic yesterday & are hanging out on the sandy beach at the Chic resort in Punta Cana. Interestingly enough, I’ll be shooting a destination wedding in November at this same resort! Matthew & Bethany, it was truly a joy to be the one to capture the bond you two share. I hope you are able to connect to WiFi while you are on your honeymoon or if you choose to totally fall off the grid, that’s great too! Enjoy your blog post with my fav favs from the day! XOXO
OBSESSED with Kurt & his fabulous arrangements!
At this very moment, you could hear the whole church go “AWWWWW.”
Insert *snap* & *whip* noise here.
You know we had to get outside for those sneak-off sunset portraits!!!
BTS Shot! Thanks, Derrick!
Okay, Matthew shocked the hell out of every one & straight pulled a Magic Mike on his new Queen. It was legit.
