Where could I ever begin to find the words to give these people, this wedding, the magic that was this day justice. Nowhere. It just lies in the images left to preserve the memory of the day.

The way Christine smiles, the way Michael looks at Christine when she smiles. The way Christine’s momma and daddy held hands during the ceremony. The way Michael’s parents were kissing on the dance floor. The bridesmaids with tears in their eyes so happy for their friend. The groomsmen giving Michael support and keeping him laughing all day long.

But the one thing sticking in my mind from this day, it’s was Christine’s dad during his speech. Christine’s dad had everyone in tears. He said he remembers the first time she hit a softball. The way she used to wake up as a baby with a smile on her face first thing in the morning. You guys, this is what life is all about. Building families, watching them grow and being inspired to love one another with the deepest most passionate kind of love there is. I left this wedding and cried on the way home, and it wasn’t because the line at Taco Bell was too long for me to get my usual “post wedding fourth meal”…it was because I can’t believe that I’m the person at these weddings preserving the day.

WHAT an honor. I grew so close to this couple from the engagement session to watching them get married that this day FULL of coral, navy, stripes, nautical fun everywhere was so bittersweet when it came to an end that night! The vendor list? AMAZING! Talent everywhere! I loved this day and I can’t thank Audrey Rose Photography enough for being my wing girl! Enjoy their incredible love story via images! 🙂
