“Sometimes the bad things that happen in our lives put us directly on the path to the best things that will ever happen to us.”
Emily and John exuded so much love. They were so fully in love with one another--but the their love was felt everywhere - their children, their friends, their family, and their home. Their story is their own. I know I only caught glimpses of it, but it was deeply moving and an honor to bear witness to on their wedding day.
They celebrated with friends and family at their home they built on land that had been in Emily's family for a long time. The ceremony overlooked a beautiful pond. We shot in a field a short walk from the house. Emily shared some of the family history there and how she loved walking that field every day with their dog.
The day had a beautiful rhythm of teamwork throughout it with friends and family helping with the food, the decorations, and final touches. Even their delicious cake was made by a friend of their daughter.
They strung up lights in their backyard above a dance floor and they built a nearby fire to warm guests when the warmth of the day gave way to a chilly fall evening.
The day was perfectly them in every way, and we wish them all the best!
