There is just something special about listening the Palma Ceia Presbyterian Church bells on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon. While all the guests are starting to come in and greet each other at the front doors of their church, they are all there for one reason, to witness Ryan and Emily’s start their next chapter as husband and wife.
It seemed not too long ago that Ryan proposed to Emily. That we were all walking along the beach together at The Don Cesar during their engagement session , laughing and talking about their dream wedding day. Now on their wedding day I stood there watching Emily’s mom button up her beautiful satin dress as I could sense both excitement and calmness in the room. Emily was about to make the easiest decision of her life, she was about to marry her best friend, her rock, the love of her life.
Emily and Ryan were surrounded by so many friends and family that loved them so dearly. I always cherish when my couples family and friends want to tell me stories about them. Learning more about their childhood or listening to funny stories that maybe they didn’t want me to know LOL. Having that many people love and support you is truly a blessing and knowing that these people really shaped them into the people they are today.
Emily & Ryan,
I hope you are enjoying your honeymoon!! What an honor it was to be there on your wedding day! You guys are truly so amazing and genuine, I am so blessed that you chose me to capture your day. I can’t wait to see where your new chapter of marriage takes you. I look forward to seeing all the new challenges and goals you guys achieve together and continue to watch you grow as a couple!! I miss you guys already!! xoxo
