Love, sweat and tears
Love, sweat, and tears – these were the three main elements of this weekend’s wedding photography.
“The greatest of these,” to quote Saint Paul, “is love.”
Friday I joined Matt of Zeta-Alpha Studios for one of the most joyfully tearful celebrations I’ve seen as Lauren and Joel celebrated their wedding at Saint Patrick’s Church here in South Bend. Before the ceremony I noticed all the little packages of tissues at both ends of every pew. Seven priests from neighboring churches and a completely full church joined the couple for a very warm Friday afternoon mass.
Saturday Saraand I met Amanda and Justin for a walk down memory lane at Morris Farms in Niles. It was there just over three years ago that Sara and I photographed our first wedding together for our friends Rachelle and Joshua.
The day was seamless and just flowed from one great moment to the next. I had a blast getting to hang out with Amanda and Justin at the engagement session, and knew the wedding day would be a continuation of the great time seeing them smile.
Amanda and Justin meeting at the front of the old meeting house. The white walls and benches scattered the afternoon sunlight beautifully and the wooden room had an excellent resonance for the harp accompanying the ceremony.
Newlyweds and the classic black Cadillac that surprised them after the ceremony!
River RAINBOW! Last weekend I was without camera when I saw a bright double rainbow, but this rainbow couldn’t have been better aligned to be photographed. It appeared over the river right behind the newlyweds at the head table!
