My love for this couple began at the first email. Last year, when Courtni first contacted me for engagements, I was shooting a wedding in England. I answered FROM England while we were there still and she replied to tell me her fiancé was from…England!!! I thought it was destiny right away– what are the chances!? I’m not a world traveler and had never even been out of the country haha! So then came their session, then the wedding booking..and one thing was CLEAR from the beginning. Matt and Courtni are that couple that is so smitten and affectionate, it makes you wanna run up to the one you love and just give them extra attention right away! Inspiring!
Even more adorable? Matt said he was going to marry Courtni..the FIRST time he saw her!!! Isn’t that incredible?! Now..he’ll go on to tell you more..he may have had a beer or two when he first met her but you know what..it definitely led to something incredible! Their are two kinds of couples I work with in one regard…the ones who don’t hold a kiss and just keep it short and sweet and then there’s Courtni and Matts that have noooo problem giving me all the affection I ask for, haha! Seriously– their family and friends made the funniest comments while they were posing about how I really don’t need to ask them to kiss for a picture..because they’re probably already doing it! I LOVE that!
Courtni and Matt- you move mountains with this love of yours. Bringing your families together from across an ocean, hosting an incredible day and the beautiful warm colored florals, charcoal and rich red wine details and personal touches made your day SO perfectly classy — I’m thrilled to have been a part of it! Thank you!! Enjoy their love story ..could NOT narrow this one down much hahaha, it’s a long one!
Thank you SO much sweet Crystal Belcher for helping me out! You’re so much fun!! 🙂
