Though my focus as a photographer is the visuals of the wedding day–how everything looks–when I think of Jen and Nathan’s wedding, I can’t help but think of how the day sounded. Every part of the day was filled with joyful noise: beautiful hymns, weaved throughout the ceremony and all the way to the last song of the night, sung in harmony around the dance floor; dance music, as they danced their (epic!) first dance and their friend (a professional dance instructor) taught steps during cocktail hour; and the giggles, cries and questions of kids as they watched Jen & Nathan make their vows. (Choosing whether or not to involve children in a wedding day, whether as guests or actual participants in the ceremony, can be a complicated decision, but it wasn’t for these two. They wanted their day to be a full picture of the life of family and the church, including all ages.) This was also one of those weddings were I was privileged to call the couple (and many of the guests!) friends before the wedding day, and it made it that much more special to share in their joy. Congratulations again, Jen & Nathan, and thank you so much for having me be the one to capture such a spiritual, beautiful day–it was truly an honor.
