Being a wedding photographer is such a cool way to live your life. I feel so grateful to have gotten to know Sarah and Anson. I wish I could insert the speeches from the rehearsal dinner here. These two are ridiculously smart, fun, and kind -doctors, Harvard, soccer - the lists were long. I love how their friends and family talk about them. They are obviously loved and as the speeches can jokingly attest - a lot to live up to. How wonderful can two people be?
Citrus is my jam and the creatives on this team are just so ridiculously talented. They had a few "doctor" moments in the design. I loved the jean jacket that Sarah's sister gave her - Dr.Snow., the illustration of the intertwined stethoscopes, and the cute doctor figurines on top of the cake. Sarah's mom also made 1000 cranes for her that made a beautiful backdrop for the head table. I think there is something for me to love in every image. The citrus florals and the relatives from abroad wearing traditional kimonos gave us plenty to photograph. The main attraction was of course Sarah and Anson. They couldn't take their eyes off each other or attempt to hide how happy the other one made them feel. That's my favorite way to spend the day - photographing people who must have done something right in their life - to have found someone that they can love and be loved in return.
