Being a wedding photographer, I am blessed with a very precious opportunity to not only document a special event but, more importantly be a part of it. I am awarded a special access pass to mingle within the ranks of family and friends to take personal, special moments, document and share with everyone. It is through this special agreement that I have been given the privilege to observe people in some of their most personal and happiest times. I have often heard people say “May you always be as happy as you are today”. It had a nice ring to it and I had always liked the saying, until this wedding. During the well wishing right after the ceremony some one in the crowd said “As you grow old together may you look back and see that the Love and Happiness that you had on your wedding day be a mere fraction of the Love and Happiness that you share as you grow older”.
These words were so sweet to my ears and offered much hope and admiration. It did not take a person with good eyesight to see the Love in the eyes of Ashley and Evan as they looked at one another during the ceremony. In fact, I think that you didn’t need your eyes at all…you could just feel it when they came close to you and hear it when they spoke. Like a soft sweet melody, echoes of their love filled the air for all to hear and feel. A deep passionate love that story books are made of is the type of Love I saw. And, to imagine a man loving his woman so much more than their wedding day is truly inspirational. Maybe, a new love story will be written and if it does I am sure that it will be about Ashley’s and Evan’s love. Thank you guys for sharing and the inspiration. LL
