Joy. Love. Passion. Sorrow. Laughter. Exuberance. Fun. Romance. Intimacy.
These are just some of the words that spring to my mind when I think of what emotions are experienced at the weddings we photograph. Amber and Pete’s wedding was even more-so.
Amber and Pete, already one of the most joyous and in-your-face-affectionate couples from 2010’s engagement sessions, proved to be exactly that on the wedding day. They are so in love, and so into each other, that this infectious sense of celebration was palpable throughout the day.
However, the emotions covered the gamut, from joy to heartbreak because Amber and her sisters (2 of 3 bridesmaids) recently lost their mother. And that loss made the day the most meaningful kind of bittersweet. For as one story ends, another begins.
So there were smiles of joy, tears of sorrow, and every emotion seemed to blend effortlessly into the other, so instead of battling each other like polar opposites, the emotional swings of the day seemed to add to the sense of gratitude, hope and love for the entire day.
This wedding was an honor to to merely be there to behold, much less capture for them. Thank you Amber and Pete, for entrusting this amazing day to Char and I.
