OKINAWA BRIGHT + VIBRANT PHOTOGRAPHER FOR HAPPY, KIND SOULS
Friday November 3rd, 2017 was an absolutely beautiful day! The weather was perfect as their friends and family who gathered to celebrate Angela and Scott traveled near and far sat down to witness the beginning of their beautiful love story.
I was so nervous driving out with Angela and Scott in Montana last year to take their engagement pictures. I had come up with a speech to propose myself to them to photograph their wedding next year in Florida. Luckily for me, they asked me before I could embarrass myself with said speech! Since then I have been so lucky to watch their love story unravel and see how 7 years of dating, deployments, laughter, many different states, a couple of houses, and the same two lovebirds brought us to their wedding day!
As I was walking the venue’s grounds wedding morning, I saw this bright-eyed, cheerful woman walking with snacks in her hand. Low and behold it was Angela, bringing treats to her future mother-in-law while she was getting ready. She was relaxed and glowing more than ever. She walked effortlessly through her wedding day, with two bridal looks, and a beautiful bouquet made by her mother.
Scott prepared with his buddies, ESPN on in the background, and everyone chiming in to tell him how sharp he looked. As Scott anxiously awaited his bride for their first look, you could see him take in deep breaths. This is one moment that you can never replicate. As Angela glided toward him you could see both of them just melt. Their day was finally here!
A short and sweet ceremony, officiated perfectly by their good friend, who made us a laugh and cry with so many joyous memories. After they were sealed with a kiss and a bubble exit, they went on to dance the night away!
Angela & Scott, thank you SO much for letting me be a part of just a pivotal moment in your lives. I am extremely excited for you two and where this adventure is going to take you both!
