even more so than the aesthetic beauty, luke + kendra's wedding was filled to the brim and overflowing with everything that a wedding is in its essence. love, joy, happy tears, smiles, laughter, heartfelt words and kisses, hugs, imperfect details, good music, fellowship with the people nearest to your heart, and promises that last a lifetime. it was the perfect day.
“i’ll be the chorus you’ll be the verse we’ll live in a forrest of beautiful words i’ll be the strings you’ll be the keys together we’ll find all the harmonies all we’ve got is all we have to give away so what i have not i fill in with what you got and we’ll be okay take yours and mine, we’ll combine and we’ll have everything take yours and mine, we’ll combine and we’ll have everything i’ll be the soil you be the seed together we’ll plant whatever we need turn on the sun fill the watering can watch love bloom while i hold your hand”
with an iced caramel macchiato + extra caramel and hazelnut in my cup
dispenser (hand delivered with a kiss at 6:30am by my personal starbucks
barista), i set off on the hour and a half drive to columbus, ohio.
page xvi + amy seeley playing and cruise control set at 80mph. up to
this point, i didn't know anything about the wedding. i didn't know
what it was going to look like, i didn't know how many were in the
bridal party, i didn't know what the venue was like, nothing. nada.
zilch. i just knew that this was going to be one of the best weddings
of all time, and i was the one getting to photograph it.
she always has kind words on her tongue and laughter in her eyes. her heart is gold and her lips are always red. she's classy, yet adventurous and unafraid. her heart is full of emotion and she wears it on her sleeve, yet she thinks deeply. the kind of deep that is often suffocated by fear. she is fearless. generous. she gives life to those around her, and i dare you to look at these photos and not hear her laughter and feel her joy.
