It was the kind of spring morning that you dream of. Sunny, with some puffy clouds sprinkled in and blooming flowers everywhere you look. The sea air made you feel full and alive. The threats of huge thunderstorms seemed so ridiculous it was comical. After all, aren’t the weathermen wrong 90% of the time? Maybe I’m remembering that statistic from my Seattle days. Either way, rain wasn’t an option today.
This day had personality. It had moods. It made me think of marriages and how they can be. Sunny one minute, dark and forbodeing the next. Then, just when you think the sun won’t shine again, out it comes in all it’s radiant glory. Everything is clean and fresh and you have a greater appreciation for the light than you did before the storm.
Amy and Stephen were married on a beautiful, personality-filled Saturday in May at the Wentworth by the Sea. As Amy was getting ready a huge thunderstorm did appear from across the sea. The sky turned black and rain poured from the heavens. We watched from the windows of the Wentworth and wondered how it would all turn out.
By the time we arrived at the church, it had passed and radiant afternoon light filled the sky.
Amy and Stephen have to be one of the kindest, funniest couples I’ve met. Their happiness is infectious. They were relaxed and enjoyed every minute of their day. They will do so well together and weather any storms that pass through their marriage. We were so happy to be a part of their wedding!
I love Amy’s shoes!
Time to get the dress on!
Mom grabbed this one of Stephen. We were all keeping an eye on the storm.
A quick shot on the porch before we climbed aboard the trolley.
And here we go!
I just love this shot!
To the sea!
Then it was off to the reception!
Congratulations you two!! XOXOXOXO
