Back in February John had the honor of photographing his little sister Ruth’s wedding. It was beautiful.. in a little gazebo just off a gorgeous Florida beach..
I had the incredible joy and honor of standing next to Ruth as her bridesmaid, watching as she promised herself to the one she loved. I’ve always felt very protective of her, and it made me so happy, knowing the guy she was marrying, I could trust him to cherish her forever. Yes, I cried.
It makes you feel happy just watching them together. The type of love that goes between two people who truly mean the world to each other. The love that shows they like just being together. That type of love that makes you wish everyone could have.
Their wedding was one of the most beautiful I’ve ever witnessed. I’ve never felt such exuberance from a newly married couple as they left the altar, finally one. Yes, I cried.
The air was crisp and cool and the long warm rays of autumn sunshine kissed the day they said, I do. One year ago, October 16. To see a few more pictures from their wedding day click here. I hope your first year together was the best you’ve ever had, and the next year will be even more wonderful.
It’s not every wedding that the groom sends the bride a bouquet of gorgeous roses moments before the wedding starts…
I’ve never had as much fun shooting a wedding as I did this past weekend. Jacob Byler and Annetta Swarey had one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever gone to. There was such a deep happiness about everything.. which was highly contagious.. Here are a few of my favorites I got.. John will be posting some of his later. Congrats to the amazing couple! -beth
