I love when wedding days are a bit of a change up from the normal. While every wedding day is unique there’s a pattern to them (ceremony then reception) and the beats are mostly the same. I love it all but I do like when I get a curveball!
Jordan and Matthew opted to do a first look (yay!) and THEN do a super simple rehearsal right before the guests arrived. I thought it was brilliant. No one seems to remember what they rehearsed the night before (and no one notices but those that were there, promise!) so why NOT do it that way?
The best part was that they walked each other up and back down the aisle. I loved it so much!
Oh and it’s always fun to run into random friends at weddings you never knew if you’d see them again. Matthew’s Uncle and I went to school together and it was such a treat to be able to say hi to him. Ironically he’s the one that introduced me to the world of the internet wayyy back in 1993 when we were Freshman. I remember being amazed by it and begging him to tell me more. Who knew that 20 years later his nephew would find and book me on that very same platform? It’s wild to me how it all ended up.
The most important thing about this day was these two though and the deep love they had for one another. It was such a special thing to document and I was so glad to have been a part of their beautiful wedding day. Thank you for trusting me to capture it!
