This spring weekend was anticipated for 2 years and lived up to every dream. As with all days that are magic, we couldn’t even have dreamed up THIS perfect of a day. You always have to leave room for the magic and they did! Chris and Merrill rolled with all the events of this past year and remembered what getting married is all about, each other. You can see every time he takes her hand or she glances at him, these photos will be enjoyed for 200 years. Their love is unshakeable.

All of the perfection and beauty of the day would have hardly been missed because they were so excited to get married, but it was the ICING on the cake and these two reveled in it. Every wedding has a moment that chokes me up. It is when I feel the heart and soul of the day. With these two, it was their first dance. I felt like they could’ve been dancing in their living room with the same emotion, they choreographed it and it absolutely took my breath away. Days are only as good as the moments that are enjoyed and this day was enjoyed every step of the way. Between the special gifts, and speech from mom, or the bride finding the most meaningful note from her grandmother years earlier and reading it to her mom on the wedding day, every moment was soaked up. We all knew we would come back from this year stronger but little did we know we would come back happier and with more soul and meaning in each little gesture. Thank you Chris and Merrill for letting me capture all of your moments and there are sooo many of them. I have no idea how I was able to narrow them down for the blog. So much to come on at your wedding reveal when we have another moment to celebrate your love, patience with this past year, and look at all of the gorgeous photos! I am so beyond thrilled with this journey captured of Chris and Merrill. Congratulations you two!
