I will always have a special place in my heart for teeny tiny elopements. Dianne and John were planning a destination wedding, but, with a family member facing serious health concerns, the wedding was moved up. They married at Smith Gardens in Oakwood a few weeks ago, with just their nearest family and a dear friend who served as the officiant. There might have been just a few sprinkles as their said their vows and we took some portraits but then, right as they were about to head to dinner, the sun peeked out and let us create a last few gorgeous, light-filled images. I’m always so honored to be trusted to capture couples on one of their most precious days, but it is always a special privilege to be present at such an intimate event, and I’m so thankful that Dianne and John had me along.
