What a beautiful wedding I get to share!! I had a blast partnering with Cheryl from La Bella Vita Photography at the breath-taking Venue At The Grove. What I didn’t expect was to be overcome with emotion throughout this entire day as I got to better know Don and Rochelle and their precious families.
First, all the intentional details were awesome!! How cute to ‘Start the Adventure’ with a trail mix bar, show fun polaroid memories at every table, and display a completed puzzle with pictures from all their adventures. Plus there were fun stations to take photos or share date ideas and marriage advice. These are just a few of the well-thought-out details that made each moment special.
There was so much sweet love–it was tangible, like something you could breathe. It all started with Gary as he was overcome with emotion upon seeing his daughter for the first time and then continued with every moment that Don and Rochelle were with each other. When they held hands for a first touch, prayed together, saw each other for the first time, shared vows at the alter — these were tangible moments of love and joy. Don’s best friend teared up during the best man speech and Rochelle’s sister Crystal shared a special song that she wrote especially for her sister about growing up, looking up to her, and loving her completely. Needless to say, my own eyes burned throughout the day.
Don and Rochelle, you are a truly beautiful couple who know how to build a strong marriage. You both carry a lot of love in your hearts that exude bountiful quantities of joy. God brought you together from two different states for a reason and I feel honored to share in your big day with you. I hope you enjoy reliving each moment through this film.
