The groom’s elegant bride glided down the aisle towards him. The girl he had loved since age six was about to be his wife! Their devotion has been steadfast over many years. Someone should have reminded me to wear waterproof mascara to this wedding, because I babysat Colleen when I was a young teen and have watched her grow up. What a privilege to capture these childhood sweethearts pledge their love.
Many of the guests have known Colleen and Alex nearly their whole lives, so this backyard wedding was a joyous celebration indeed. The couple’s first dance to Michael Buble was a piece they choreographed, and they looked super snazzy while dancing! It was especially fitting since Colleen has been a dancer her entire life--which is also why she chose to wear shoes designed like dancers' "point shoes."
Enjoy the glimpse into their memorable day!
Colleen was such an elegant and graceful bride! I l love this portrait, just moments before the ceremony.Both of them looked fantastic, in their timeless attire. Colleen's brother led worship and shortly thereafter, the bride and groom served communion to their guests. I've never seen that before and thought it was a neat symbol! Finally, after many years, they are married!! These next two portraits are certainly my favorites from the day. Time to party! I always enjoy watching the parents' expressions during first dances. How stunning is the bride's mom as she watches her husband and daughter share a special moment. The bride and her mom executed a beautiful vision, and they hunted down various china for the reception. I also want to brag on my mom, who headed up the making of the favors: the exquisite Springerle cookies (in the left photo.) The bride and groom taught their guests a traditional, Greek dance which provided plenty of laughs! Hey, I know that couple in the top left photo--my adorable sister (a bridesmaid) and her stylin' husband! The bottom left shot is sentimental, as it shows both the groom's parents and bride's parents. The day ended with dancing, and then the couple embarked for a fun honeymoon in the Virgin Islands.
