And the award for most smiling-est groom of all time goes to: John.
Weddings mean something different to everyone. And in this case, this was a wedding that was all about family and coming together as one. This was one of those weddings that was so bursting with family love at every turn it was almost overwhelming. Leah’s niece was a flower girl, John’s daughter was a bridesmaid. Leah’s brother was a groomsman along with his son. Their best friends were their maid of honor and best man. At any wedding, the first hour or so is spent mentally sorting out who’s who–okay is that John’s brother or Leah’s brother? Wait, Leah’s sister? No that’s her brother’s wife. Okay… Pretty quickly though you get that all sorted out in your mind. I figured out whose siblings and parents were whose…but I also figured out that in this case? They’re one family. You could hardly distinguish between these families, there was so much tight knit closeness and love happening. I’m completely humbled by this family. Their love for each other and focus on being together and celebrating family was like none other I’ve ever seen. Thank you John and Leah for sharing your incredible family with me.
Thank you also to my amazing right hand girl Alexandra Roberts for shooting with me on this incredible day!
