A wise 80′s Rock musician once said … ‘Its a NICE DAY for a WHITE WEDDING!’ And Lindsey and Josh’s day couldn’t have been nicer! Not necessarily by weather ‘nice’ standards, considering it was a torrential down pour for the first 3-4 hrs, but it was NICE because of the amazing people, love and atmosphere that came from that ‘lucky’ wedding rain storm. Their creative team of vendors ROCKED the house down and the memories created were some of the sweetest and funnest I’ve ever captured. I think I must have cried at least 3-4 times from beginning to end.. I am such a sap, but they were tears of happiness for sure, so that makes it way more AWESOME, right???
The sweetest moment for me was at the end of the night Lindsey grabbed the microphone and had her mom come to the front of the dance floor. Something she said really struck a cord with me, she said (I’m paraphrasing of course) ‘We put so much time and effort and money into these weddings and there is never really any specific tribute to the Mothers. They are just as equally involved as the brides in the planning… My mom has been such an amazing help, friend and encourager and I wanted to ask you (as she handed her mom the rose)… ‘May I have this dance!?” NOT A DRY EYE IN THAT PLACE!!!! Everyone was crying and totally invested in that moment.. It was pure and raw and full of so much genuine love and gratitude and appreciation and I practically broke my camera with the water damage I was putting on the LCD screen as I watched through my (tear drowning) view finder at the beauty unfolding before me… Take a moment to see for yourself.
