I knew when she said she was going to read a letter from her dad, that this wedding would be different. I have witnessed many weddings ‘up close and personal’ but this was the first time I ever had the pleasure to record a father sharing his written love for his daughter — it brought a sting of tears to my eyes before the day even began.
It would be a beautiful, intentional wedding. And not just because Carley and Pearl Miller (her incredible wedding coordinator) had spent countless hours planning every detail. But because Carley and Imoh were surrounded by deep, beautiful, intentional love.
The day was bountiful with special little moments. Like when Aniekan, Imoh’s father, blew a kiss to his new daughter during the dinner blessing or when Carley’s sisters gave a beautiful tag-team speech during the reception, or when Imoh’s ring bearer came up in the middle of the ceremony to deliver a handkerchief for our teary-eyed groom. And that was just a few of the priceless memories throughout the day.
Carley and Imoh, you were so kind every step of the way. Lena and I felt your sweetness so deeply, not only as you took time to acknowledge us in your beautiful speech during the reception but even in having our own name tents among honored guests with a custom meal selection. You not only love each other deeply, you love everyone around you fully. You are truly a special couple and I couldn’t be happier for you both!! Congratulations!! I hope you love your wedding film as much as I did. Your wedding was absolutely beautiful and now the best is yet to come!
