J is warm, funny, and just plain sweet. When she came to our house for a consultation to talk about wedding photos the usual hour and half meeting lasted for more than a few hours; we talked about her wonderful plans for her country wedding on her family farm, how hard the distance was between her and D was (as he was at the RCMP depot in training), the cards and care packages she planned and sent him, we talked about her sweet puppy, our mutual love of teaching, her appreciation for all things Truronian, and by the end of the night we were making up hypothetical new business ventures together, we had arranged a marriage between Anna (our little one) and her nephew -I felt like I hadn’t just gained a new bride I had gained a friend. The wedding day was an extension of this and J’s hairstylists asked how long we had known each other and been friends -to which we replied it was the second time we had ever seen each other.
J and D, your wedding was beautiful -from the perfect summer weather, the cornflower blue sky, the cutest, furriest little flower girl I have ever seen. One of my favourite moments was during your ceremony when you took time after your kiss just to hug and you could just see the expression of pure happiness on your face!
It was a pleasure photographing your wedding, and getting to know you. You two are going to have fabulous adventures together during all of your postings. D-take care of that one, she is a catch!!
***Names and D’s face were omitted from this post to protect the identity of his family -we did in actuality get pictures that included the groom -we promise ; )
