I'd love to get to know you better!  Feel free to drop me a note anytime!

Oh what a joyful day it was to witness Mara and Daniel become husband and wife!!  There was such a song of laughter throughout the entire day!

The day began with sunflowers, diamonds, and a lovely flowy gown to compliment all of Mara’s hard work.  She hand made so many of the details that were woven through every aspect of their special day.  Her thoughtfulness, time, and preparation in hand crafting the perfect day for their marriage made it even that much more lovely.

Mara began the day with all of her closest friends by her side before preparing to see Daniel for the first time.  They soon shared a first look under two large magnolias.  Daniel never seemed more content than in the moment that he got to hold Mara for the first time that day.  Portraits were full of smiles, jokes, and anticipation for the events to come.  They later vowed forever under a waterfront arbor.  The smile on Mara’s face as she walked down the aisle towards Daniel was just radiant and it was even bigger when they were pronounced husband and wife!!!!    

Mara and Daniel were later welcomed into their reception with cheer and the dance floor officially opened for the remainder of the night!  Heartfelt speeches from Mara’s father, their closest friends, and Daniel’s son brought the crowd to tears followed by more laughter.  That seemed to be the theme throughout their day- tears of joy followed by soul touching laughter.  I’d wish just that for all of my clients on their special day and I am so happy that these two got to experience just that!!!

Mara and Daniel – it was such an honor to photograph your wedding.  You two looked amazing, but even more than that I can tell how genuinely happy you are together and it is just beautiful to witness.  I wish y’all all of the very best that life and the future has to offer.  Congratulations yall!!!!
