The grey hued sky and rain clouds did not echo the mood of this perfect wedding day. At noon Sarah was all smiles and the picture of calm, having already put the finishing touches on the reception decor, leaving no detail unattended – each homemade jam jar set out, the cross stitched ornament place cards were placed, the hand made letters on burlap perfectly strung, the moulded wire name tags on the head table were positioned, the burlap runners matched the chair ties – her vision was perfected and all that was left to do was to see Hurst, so they could walk through their wedding day together. They decided to do a first look, and it couldn’t have been more special. Friends and family watched as a beautiful Sarah walked to Hurst; there were tears, hugs, a kiss or two, and it set the tone for the rest of the day.
In a cozy country church Sarah and Hurst stood, speaking their vows in front of the same altar that her parents recited their vows, in the same church where Sarah’s grandparents had wed. During the ceremony Hurst caught Sarah’s eye with this subtle unwavering look of love that so captured his quiet affection and adoration for her. Hand in hand they took in every detail, the readings they had chosen – the exquisite solos that were sung, the communion that was shared – each moment was savoured under the same roof where her grandparents’ and parents’ stories began.
Sarah and Hurst, I cannot begin to say how wonderful you two are, from the email correspondences we have shared to the engagement shoot that felt like a hang out, we have enjoyed every aspect of your wedding preparation and day! Enjoy your sneak peek, and I can’t wait for you to see the rest of the shots!!
