I’m so excited to share this wedding with you today! This past week in the Thomas House has been absolutely bananas. By the end of it, I was stuck at a Baltimore hospital for Justin’s shoulder surgery and, out of the waiting rom window, I watched the torrential downpour for over seven hours. SEVEN. Ya’ll, I could feel my pulse quicken at the thought of shooting a wedding in this mess. And it was supposed to continue all weekend long. I mean, a wedding with a passing shower? Easy. A misty rain where our hair gets frizzy but we still go for it? I can do that.
But this? Not this. This was impossible.
The entire ride home, windshield wipers flying, I prayed. I prayed for the rain to slow, bargaining that I would take clouds or cool temperatures but not a monsoon. And I prayed for Taylor and Cullan and their families who were undoubtedly having the very same thoughts about a much-anticipated day. And of course God showed up with way more than I asked for. It wasn’t just a lack of rain, it was the presence of sun. It was a day in the 80s with puffy white clouds and Just Married cans clinking behind a vintage, powder blue pickup truck. It was bubbles flying outside an old church and two Mama’s hugging each other so hard because their kids got married today (and I mean hugging hard because Fun Fact: Taylor’s Mom and Cullan’s Mom have been best friends since they were in Kindergarten. I mean, girlfriends always dream-talk about their kids getting married one day but how often does that really happen? Well it happened!)
Taylor and Cullan – your wedding was a much-needed breath of fresh air. There was so much joy, so many hugs, glasses clinking and dozens of friends on the dance floor. I loved being your photographer and I know, without a doubt, that you will have the happiest, most joy-filled life together. Enjoy the sneak peek!
