As the doors opened in the back of the church this past Saturday, everyone knew that the bitter sting of the last year was about to be a bit salved with the sweet future of a beautiful bride and handsome groom. The bride’s brother proudly took her arm and walked her down the aisle. Emotions of her father’s passing turned to confidence with each slow and deliberate step. She caught sight of her future husband’s steadfast and calm eyes and, moments later, took his hand in marriage. As her mother glanced over and smiled, everyone knew her father was also looking down smiling as well, proud of his beautiful little girl.
When I met Christine to chat about her wedding a year ago, we were little more than strangers. But through the process of this past year--the planning, the engagement shoot, the guestbook album--I'm grateful to say she has become a friend. I've said this before, but it bears repeating. Christine is a courageous and sweet soul. And Bart? He is, without a doubt, the solid rock, the steady hand, and the tender love that so beautifully carries Christine.
Bart and Christine, thank you for trusting us to capture your wedding day. We were excited and honored to be with you this past Saturday. We hope you enjoy reliving your day through these images. Much love and gratitude to you both!
After the beautiful ceremony at Grace United Methodist Church, Christine & Bart hosted a lovely reception at
The Legacy. Their celebration truly embodied the comfortable, romantic, and fun love they share!
