When trying to think of how to describe Sarah & Matt’s wedding, I kept coming back to one thing. Certainty. I have known Sarah since childhood, and when I met Matt for the first time, I was certain he was the one for her. Everyone that saw them together said the same thing – there was no doubt they would be planning a future together soon. Shortly after that, Matt decided that he was certainly not going to let her go, and asked her to spend the rest of her life with him. A year later, these two pledged their love during a beautiful ceremony and reception at the Alumni Center on their Alma Mater’s campus, filled with family and friends.
Sarah’s bouquet had a sweet little adornment with pictures of her grandparents on both sides and one of her grandmother’s wedding bands enclosed. So beautiful.
Sarah and Matt decided to see each other before the wedding for pictures, and I love that the mother of the groom and mother of the bride were the ones to lead him up to see Sarah on the balcony. I can just imagine what it was like for them to lead their son/future son-in-law up those stairs to see his bride for the first time. I tucked myself in a corner and watched the beauty unfold while they spent a few moments alone together.
I snuck a few pictures of the quiet moment these two were having just after the ceremony and am so glad I did. Such raw emotion.
I had to share this one – the wedding was hitting facebook before the bride and groom were even announced at the reception!
Sarah and Matt – thank you for letting me document your day and take part in the moments that come in between with you and your families. I will never forget the love and affection I saw on your special day. Together you are better version of your already wonderful selves – of this I am certain.
