Sarah+Jordan//married//

I remember, in grade 12, sitting on the light oak floor in the dance studio of my high school; it was mirrored and well lit and Sarah was practicing.  I don’t know whether she was preparing for a dance exam, an audition or her number in the musical.  All I remember is that she was poised and elegant and that she adorably scrunched up her freckled nose to laugh at my imitation of her fluid dance moves.

A few weeks ago I had the chance to be a part of Sarah’s wedding and the preparations for her big day.   I walked in that Saturday morning to see that poised girl had become a woman who looked stunning in her gown.   The elegance continued throughout the day as she walked into a sun-soaked chapel to meet her groom.  At the front of the church when she finally caught a glimpse of Jordan’s approving gaze, she was radiant.

After the ceremony, the piper began to play and the celebration really took off.  We had a blast shooting family groups; I have never seen so many different characters, or so much orange during the “formal” wedding photo part of the day.  It was a joy to be a part of.

Later we stole the bride and groom away for some shots.  I loved how Jordan was able to so easily bring the scrunched nose  smile to Sarah’s face even thought it was quite cold and a little rainy.

I couldn’t have asked for a better day for my friend.  She was surrounded by her lovely family, close friends and she had found the love of her life.

Sarah and Jordan, I wish you so much happiness! Thanks for letting us be a part of your day!

It was funny when Jordan paused before the kiss to take out a breath mint … but it was funnier still when he offered it to Sarah instead !

There is a tradition on Sarah’s side of the family to be avid supporters of the Wolverhampton Wanderers, a UK soccer (er… football) club.

So the family photos were not complete with out a shot proudly featuring the Wolves colours : )

( later, there would be a rousing rendition of the team’s theme song, We Are Wolves! )
