Sarah & Jonathan Wedding!

September 4, 2013

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving deeply gives you courage” -Lao Tzu

Remember Sarah and Jonathan from their engagement session a while back?  [if not, HERE ya go!].  While they both are originally from the South Bend area, they moved out to Texas together when Jonathan got a job out there last year [during Jonathan’s dad speech, he talked about how “We knew where we stood when we were asked to escort the guinea pig, Ludacris, in Jonathan’s car” when helping them move out there.]

Their wedding was so gorgeous.  The bright yellow bridal bouquet, complimented beautifully the soft yellow bridesmaids dresses.  And the Nerf gun groomsman gifts made for hilarious photography props, as well as other great mischief and mayhem.  This was also the first wedding for me, where it was SOOO clear that Sarah’s dad was a dancer.  I went up to him after he had waltzed with Sarah for the father-daughter dance to compliment him on his dancing skills, and he said, “I just love dancing”.  A man of my own heart.

Sarah and Jonathan, you were so lovely to work with!  Thanks so much for inviting me to photograph your wedding day!

S: Walking down the aisle towards Jonathan.

J:  Seeing Sarah walk down the aisle.

Advice for future brides?

Don’t worry if anything goes wrong, no one will know anyways because you did all the planning so they will think it was all part of the plan. – Grooms Mom (Maureen) told me this the day of the wedding, and she was totally right!

Funniest memory?

Watching Jonathan shoot the bridal party with a Nerf gun during our grand entrance! 

If you could do it all over would you change anything?

Nothing, our day was perfect and we couldn’t have asked for anything better!  

Honeymoon?

We went to Curacao in the Caribbean for our honeymoon.
