Last weekend, in the midst of our fall busy season, and focusing most of our free time, energy and attention on us, we were reminded why we love photographing weddings so much. Photographing Matthew & Amelia’s Belle Crane Inn Wedding, we were reminded it’s an entire day where we’re able to get completely lost in other people. It is such a gift to be able to spend an entire weekend putting other people first. To forget about anything and everything that’s happening in our world — and be invited into one of the most important days in someone else’s world.
Matthew and Haley are cousins, so we had the absolute honor of being both wedding guests AND photographers! It was truly a beautiful and meaningful day full of love, faith, family and friends.
Amelia was so joyful and excited about her big day, from her fur-baby Fifa joining them, her dress and details, to her family and friends who joined them. It was especially special to watch them both interact with each other. There’s enough love between these two to last many lifetimes. One of our personal favorite moments from the day was watching them pray before their ceremony. Their love for each other and their faith is truly astounding.
Matthew and Amelia, we’ll never forget our first time meeting you two as a couple — and we certainly won’t forget your beautiful wedding day. But do you know what we’ll remember most and not just not forget? The fun you had from start to finish, and the kindness you showed us and everyone around you. Never stop doing those two things and your life will be as beautiful as your Belle Crane Inn wedding day. We love you both and hope you love your memories as much as we loved saving them.
