For me, every wedding is memorable in its own way. In 2018, Gabby and Adam’s wedding was by far the most emotional for me. On so many different levels. I cried sad tears. I laughed happy tears. I danced and celebrated when I found out they have an ice cream bar instead of cake… So. Many. Emotions. I hope I managed to catch all of the little snippets in time for them. It was a truly special day for so many reasons. Not only for them as a couple but I believe for everyone present.
Gabby’s mom almost didn’t make it to the wedding due to some health issues. Being a mom myself and also a daughter to a mom I absolutely adore, my heart broke into a thousand pieces many times over that day. And then it was put together again and again throughout the day witnessing so much joy and love and kindness. I had a hard time even looking at Gabby’s eyes because they literally broke me. This girl has the most amazing, warm, beautiful blue eyes accompanied by the most infectious smile I have ever photographed… To see them fill up with tears was hard.
I say this a lot and many might not fully understand what I mean. Most other wedding photographers will. I feel my heart grow with every single couple I photograph. I am forever thankful to you all for sharing these precious moments with me…
Their first dance was on Peter Gabriel’s Book of Love
(This song is special to Mike and I and it was the first time I have ever heard it play at a wedding… the moment it started we both locked eyes. It was awesome!)
