What a day we had celebrating Aundrea & Garrett's marriage! From the moment I walked in to the room I could tell that this day held so much emotion and excitement for everyone involved. I could immediately see how close they were to their friends who were in the Bridal Party, and how much family means to all of them. I took special care with a ring that belonged to Aundrea's aunt who passed away many years ago. A beautiful sapphire nestled between two diamonds that served as something blue, but more importantly a way to carry her memory along with her down the aisle. There were many sweet details like this that added more meaning to their wedding day. I was touched by their heartfelt decision to honor the people in their lives who they had lost with special candles made with a photo of each person they held dear to them.
One of my favorite moments of the day was during Garrett's Mother-Son dance. He and his Mom slow danced for a short while and then busted out the moves to a mash up of high energy party music that was choreographed and everything! I never did ask how many times they practiced! The crowd cheered them on and everyone whipped out their phone to take videos of them perfectly in sync with each other and the music. It was such a special way for them to celebrate together and it really got the party started!
The abundance of love and friendship surrounding these two wonderful people was incredible. The whole day was filled with joyous laughter, well wishes, and happy tears. It's evident that they have a beautiful life ahead of them, and I feel honored to have met these kind people who have great attitudes and vibrant hearts that warm up a room. Thank you Aundrea & Garrett for letting me be a part of this special day! I am so happy to have captured all of these moments turned in to memories that I know you'll never forget.
