I met Justin & Paula over a year ago when they were on the search for a wedding photographer. What stuck with me the most was how sweet these two were. Paula definitely had this wedding planning thing under control. 🙂 She had a vision and was well organized. Justin was also very excited about the wedding. He is just so in love with Paula. This year has not proven my initial instincts about them wrong. They are very much in love and one of the sweetest couples I’ve met.
Their wedding day was absolutely perfect. Everything was on schedule, nothing went wrong (that I saw). Everything was in place and everyone in attendance was full of love and support for the couple. It was a cloudy and chilly day, but it didn’t rain. 🙂 From the photographer’s perspective, I had AMAZING light all day long. So I apologize for such a large share. I couldn’t help myself.
I can count at least 3 times during the day when tears filled my eyes. The first time being when Paula’s dad walked her down the aisle and gave her away. The second time when Justin had something prepared to read to Paula during the ceremony. The 3rd time was during the speeches. Then, while I was editing (and even writing this) the tears appear again. I just don’t think I can help it with such strong love. They are tears of joy, love and adoration.
I wish a lifetime of laughs, love and happiness for Paula & Justin. I know that tears and struggles are part of the journey as well, but I have total faith in their love. They will always overcome and have each other through any of those times. All my love!
