Brandon and Ryan walked towards us, Madison hiding just around the corner, and even from a distance, I could see nervous laughter coming from Ryan. Brandon continued to assure Ryan that his bride was right around the corner and this is the moment they would get to see and squeeze each other on their wedding day for the first time. After only a good morning text, both of them were so ready to celebrate today together! Ryan turned to face away from where Madison was hiding and took a deep breath. Madison moved into position, right behind Ryan. She tapped his shoulder and he turned around to see his bride, his best friend. Big sighs of relief came from both of them as huge smiles spread across their faces.
Madison and Ryan‘s wedding day was one of the sweetest things to get to witness. There were exactly three moments during the day that made me teary:
1. During Madison and Ryan’s first look. Both of them with nervous jitters giggling and smiling, hugging and kissing. Ryan told Madison how beautiful she was and couldn’t stop admiring her. A smile never left either of the faces from that point forward!
2. During the ceremony when are Ryan and Madison read their vows to one another. They were sharing their vows and the place where they first met. In the place where their relationship had grown. The place where they worship together. This Chapel is extremely special to them, and what a privilege it was to watch them commit their lives together in this place.
3. At the reception, Madison’s dad stood up to thank the guests and share a little bit about Madison and Ryan. Madison’s dad ended his heartfelt toast with the line, “Madi, will you dance with me?” Cue tears!!
Madison and Ryan, we have loved getting to know you guys over the last year! We had a blast on your wedding day, and we feel so privileged to get to witness these moments and capture them! We can’t wait to see where your lives go from here and how your love grows as a couple!
