My last full wedding of the year was extra special. Marlinda & Phillip have been inviting me along in their life’s journey for years now & I’ve loved being a part of it. From maternity, engagement to bridal & finally, wedding day, it’s been a busy couple of years! They also have been guests at a handful of weddings I have shot so I feel like I see them often. I also feel like all of my clients know each other & it makes all the events I shoot so fun!
The weather this last weekend was gorgeous! I honestly don’t think there has been a day that I’ve shot with Marlinda that it hasn’t been beautiful sun. She’s a ray herself! Her style is classic & glamourous. She had her venue decorated with soft white florals that were as big as me! You KNEW it was Marlinda’s wedding reception as soon as you walked in.
There were so many sweet moments during the day that I had to catch myself wiping a tear. Marlinda’s oldest son, Jaiden, walked her down the isle. My own son walked me down the isle so this struck a nerve. It’s not too often that your kids attend your wedding when they are young. It’s even more rare that your kiddo gets to walk you to your forever. They also shared a special dance together that was so sweet.
We can’t forget about their sweet Baby Philly, either! He was a total camera ham & if he saw my camera he was stopping & staring. I took advantage of that little staring at my camera!
Phillip & Marlinda, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your day & for continuting to choose JKP in all of life’s pivotal moments. It means the WORLD! Enjoy highlights from your day through my lens & best of luck house hunting together! XOXO
I love their reactions at seeing her for the first time!
This was too silly not to share!
