Last summer you may remember that I had the privilege of photographing my sister and brother-in-law’s gorgeous wedding. After Matt & Heidi’s wedding I was pretty beat, like it took me days to recover beat– that probably had to do with my kiddos being the ring bearers, my husband being the MC and having spent lots of energy beforehand creating and decorating (if you are reading this Heid, just know I wouldn’t have changed a thing).
After Matt & Heidi’s big day I almost promised myself that I wouldn’t work a family wedding again…but then I realized that, although it may be more work because I have to be “on” for the photography aspect and and “on” for the socializing; I wouldn’t want it any other way. I work really hard to capture each and every one of my couples to the best of my creative ability; and I hope that the fruits of my labour will always be treasured not only by the couple, but by their family and by the future generations that come from their marriage. I have now changed my perspective, I feel extra blessed to capture a family wedding because I am a part of the family who will relive, retell and remember not only the wedding, but the love that brought us all together to celebrate that day.
By now you’ve all probably figured it out, but I’m so excited to be working with my beautiful cousin and her fiancé for their July 2014 wedding.
Marc and Yvonne couldn’t be more perfect for each other! To start off, the name Marc is one that easily rolls off Yvonne’s tongue since she spent her entire childhood and I’m sure even into adulthood speaking and sometimes shouting this name. Marc “with a C”, as he is identified, will be the second Mark in our family, since Yvonne has a younger brother with his namesake.
Another reason these two are absolutely perfect for each other is, to state the obvious, I’m not sure there were too many other men out there that would allow Yvonne to dawn a nice set of heels and still require her to look up, and not the other way around. I thought that our family was generally pretty tall until Marc came along and he easily squashed our height proudness.
Lastly, these two are absolutely perfect for each other because when they are together you can just tell they bring out the best in each other. Marc treats Yvonne so well and it shows every time her eyes catch a glimpse of him and it makes her eyes sparkle. Yvonne completes Marc and it shows as he becomes absorbed in her touch and embrace, and he seems refreshed by her presence.
Don’t worry Marc, I won’t tell anyone in the family that you are more ticklish than Yvonne…whoops, I guess I just did.
As long as you don’t make my kids your ring bearers and my husband your MC, I’ll totally be your wedding photographer…just kidding! In all honesty, I’m so honoured to be involved in your big day as your photographer and I’m so excited to be the one who gets to capture and share your love story with our family.
