there is just something about her:
she is soft and refined, like royalty. she is articulate and sweet and her heart pumps goodness. i want so desperately to describe her but words are failing me.
“She may be the song the summer sings
May be the chill the autumn brings
May be a hundred different things
Within the measure of the day.”
“she may be the mirror of my dream
the smile reflected in a stream”
i have this compulsion for you to know her; she is everything good in this world bottled up in her tiny little frame. i desperately want to tell you all about the love and sense of unity and family that i felt at her and dan’s wedding, but again, the words fail me.
there is just something divine about her. something ethereal. something resplendent.
to know her is to love her, and dan is lucky to know and hold her and her transcendent heart for the rest of his life.
“She may be the reason I survive
The why and wherefore I’m alive
The one I’ll care for through the rough and ready years
Me, I’ll take her laughter and her tears
And make them all my souvenirs
For where she goes, I’ve got to be
The meaning of my life is…she”
their day was as nothing short of perfect. they had waited long enough for it. good things are always worth the wait though, right?
their bridal party was filled with the same positive energy these two encompass:
and some risk takers as well:
they built plenty of time into their schedule for portraits; it was ideal. we strolled the beach together, taking in the heart beat of the earth and soaking in the stillness before the rush of commitment and celebration:
their ceremony was officiated by a friend. it made it that much more personalized and intimate. intimate in a very playful way:
dan doned his video-grapher cap:
a few details. i am fastly falling in love with the bouquet. i think it is one of my favorite details of a wedding:
i actually loved this image. the lone color pop was cool to me:
i was fascinated by these lighting fixtures; i thought they were also, well, cool:
my second shooter and dear friend joy caught this one. i loved the movement:
and celebrated and “ate” cake:
