From the very first email we shared with a Michelle and Chris we knewwwww their day would be one to not miss. After setting up a meeting over coffee and hot chocolate we all decided we were perfect fits for each other. In the months leading up to their day we chatted here and there just to catchup – literally not even wedding related! And our excitement for their day just grew.
Well last weekend the day finally came and we were more than ready to see these two get hitched! They choose the Marriot Water Street to get ready and then boarded the Yacht Starships Sensation boat with about 60 of their nearest and dearest. Michelle was absolutely glowing from the moment we saw her! She is a beautiful woman filled with love and a huge happy heart. We can’t remember the last time we laughed with a bride so much just from a genuine happiness. And Chris, well he was so dapper looking. And he too was filled with so much love in his heart as he prepared to meet Michelle at the end of the aisle he couldn’t keep a smile off his face either. His son David played the flute while Michelle walked down the aisle and those vows you guys OH MY WORD! Both Chris and Michelle our so much care and thought into what they were going to say, it was like they read each other some serious poetry. It was beautiful. Tears and sniffles of joy filled the air. Their ceremony was beautiful. Then we got to their intimates and they blew us out of the water. They were so easy to work with as they just nestled into each other so effortlessly, while still laughing and just enjoying the sunset and the fact that they just got married.
One thing to note about these two besides their love for each other is their love to have a damn good time! Along with their friends they literally tore the dance floor up. From jumping up and down to a literal dance off – which will for sure make it into their blooper film- they partied the night away.
Just before the end of the wedding we went to find the newlyweds only to see them sitting quietly on the back of the boat watching all their loved ones enjoying themselves. Soaking it all in.
In all of the years we have been shooting weddings we have NEVER seen anyone do this. For anyone reading this, for one, taking a minute to do that is so smart! Like you spend all this time and money and had this crazy day and now you’re married and with your hunny and you get to watch all your biggest fans enjoy their night all there to celebrate you. Like hello, that’s GENIUS! And for two, the look on their faces when we found them is like nothing we have seen before. The love they share doesn’t need words and it screams through in their last few photos.
We are so lucky to have been chosen by these two to celebrate on their day! Hope you enjoy their photos as much as we enjoyed being around Michelle, Chris and their fam. Congratulations again!
