Dale and Brooks… gettin’ married and making history at the same time!
Last weekend I had the absolute pleasure of shooting Dale and Brooks’ wedding in Atlanta, Georgia at the Swan House and Historical Center – which was the first gay wedding ceremony at that venue we found out! How cool is that! Not only did these two amazing men have an absolutely gorgeous ceremony and wedding day, but they also got to do something no one has done there before! Awesome.
Now for those of you who aren’t familiar with my relationship to Dale over the years I’ll break it all down for you guys..
I’m willing to bet many of the friends and family members of Dale (and Brooks) have seen my photos over the years, even if you didn’t know it at the time. Dale is basically my wedding BFF. And I’m thinking that should be a thing. Yep. That’s it. It’s now a thing. #weddingBFF. Dale and I have been at SEVEN weddings together (eight if you include his!). But I’ve actually known Dale 17 years? 18 years? We went to school together. And while admittedly, he was much closer friends with my sister (who was in the same grade level, one behind me) he was always a great guy to catch up with when our busy lives and paths crossed over the years.
It was obviously later on that I met Brooks. And it was actually, appropriately, that I met Brooks at a wedding. My sisters.
As Brooks and Dale got closer to the point of planning their own wedding they reached out to me about being a part of it. I was thrilled! Not only had I got to know both of them better over the years at all the weddings we attended together, but I had also photographed Dale’s sister Denay’s wedding. When Denay and Omar were planning their wedding Dale reached out to be so he could recommend me to Denay. So by the time of the Dwelle-Andrews wedding I already had met and got to know a lot of the Dwelle side of the family!
And as a photographer it is very special to be a part of multiple family events.
After Brooks and Dale had locked down dates, a location, and several other details about their weekend they got in touch with me again. Dale explained to me that as part of a destination-style wedding (at least one that required travel for many of the guests) they were going to host multiple events and mini-parties of sorts for their guests. I was asked if it would be possible to capture photos during these events, too.
So, as any of you who have seen one of my wedding blogs knows.. I’m going to save the rest of my comments for the captions.
And as we all heard during the speeches at the rehearsal dinner, there are so many great things that can be said about these two. I’m particularly lucky because I get to share my thoughts and memories through this blog – and most appropriately, though photos.
That being said..
You ready to break that scroll-wheel on your mouse and check out just over 850 images from Brooks and Dale’s amazing, and beautiful, wedding weekend and celebration in Atlanta?! As well as a brief stroll down memory lane with the past weddings we’ve been at together?
I hope so.
Go pour yourself a cup of…whatever you want to drink.. maybe one of those Dark & Stormy’s everyone was drinking at the wedding. Grab a snack. And get ready to re-live the Dwelle-Andrews wedding weekend!
And those of you who couldn’t make it.. I hope this helps you feel like you were still part of it all. I know I certainly missed some of you who couldn’t be there.
First… let’s look back at all the weddings I’ve been at with Dale, and later with Brooks!
September 2009: The Deasy-Lauters Wedding in Santa Cruz. The first wedding we were at together was that of my best friend TJ and his wife Cassandra. Dale was the officiant, and I was the best man!
On the left you see Dale and I as TJ & Cassandra leave down the aisle. On the right, Dale and I are clearly demonstrating HORRIBLE posture while waiting for photos… ha!
January 2010: The Starr-Machallister wedding in San Jose. On the left is Dale breaking it down with my sister Monica (and Ernesto singing in the background). The right, people trusting Dale to hold their wine at the bar. Clearly a Pulitzer winning shot (sorry Dale! haha!)
September 2010: The Remus-Rettke wedding in Woodside. This was the first time I met Brooks! And while I was actually in this wedding, and not shooting, my aunt ran around taking pictures after I dialed the settings for her. Ended up with a great shot of these two!
May 2012: The McSpadden-Rowe Wedding in Saratoga. I actually didn’t attend a wedding with Brooks and Dale all of 2011, but I did get to catch up with them at Molly and Alan’s wedding in the Spring of 2012.
September 2012: The Dwelle-Muñoz Wedding in San Jose & Gilroy. Like I mentioned above, I was lucky enough to photograph Omar & Denay’s wedding for them. It was incredibly beautiful, too. And as it turned out this was the first of two Dwelle weddings I would get to shoot! Seriously though, go check out the Muñoz Wedding photos. It was incredible. Must be a Dwelle thing to make everything they do amazing.
May 2013: The Randle-Villarreal Wedding in San Ramon. It wasn’t much longer until we were at another wedding – Sarah and Ernesto’s! And it was also this point that things turned into “Ok guys, I need a photo with you both and me because we’ve been to so many ceremonies together!”
July 2014: The Maxwell-Barron Wedding in Monterey. Paul and Hilary’s wedding would be among the last that I’ll be at with Dale and Brooks… mostly because there aren’t any single friends left! Ha! I suppose at some point I should find someone to date and marry, then invite them, THEN we can add another photo to this list!
… but we did get to do and Engagement shoot together!
November 2014: The Andrews & Dwelle Engagement shoot. I never wrote a big blog post on their engagement shoot, as much as I would have liked to. I wanted to save the fun and surprise of the photos for Brooks and Dale to share – not me.
We spent the morning together at the vineyard they had their first date. We asked if it was possible to walk around and take some photos around the property. The venue said it was fine, just no wandering through the vines. At one point the manager walked by and smiled as we were shooting. Later she told me she was so excited when she realized it was and engagement shoot! And congratulated the grooms-to-be before we left.
Anddd the group selfie before we left that afternoon!
But now it’s Brooks and Dale’s turn..
Wedding time in Georgia!
The weekend started off with Welcome Drinks at Rí Rá Irish Pub down the street from everyone’s hotels.
Lots of catching up and laughing between the guests. I also caught up with a few friends I hadn’t seen in over a decade that night.
Denay and Omar were of course there! I couldn’t believe it had been 2 1/2 years since I saw them last! And they have a daughter on the way!
Dale and Brooks saying a few words and thanking everyone for making such a long trip to celebrate with them.
It was a pretty full house already and it was only the first night! We had the whole back room to ourselves to celebrate
I honestly wish I could remember what Brooks was saying about Dale just then. Anyone know? Tell me so I can add it in my captions!
From what I understand, is that as the night went on, we NEVER hit the limit on the open bar! Dale said that they started making new friends with random patrons buying them a drink simply because they hand’t met the pre-paid tab!
Way to party it up, guys! hahaha!
Also, a lot of people hit the clubs afterward. I hit the pillows… lol! I was exhausted from my flight in that afternoon.
Day 2: BOWLING & BREWS
Starting off Saturday with some bowling, and all sorts of food and snacks after the long night of drinking everyone had.. haha!
I’ll be honest, this was me, too, as soon as food arrived. I think we were all hungry that morning
Dale and Brooks were busy socializing and still attempting to bowl a little bit between catching up
At this point I think most people were simply hungry. It took a while before everyone really starting bowling. Most were eating and drinking
A portion of the guests, like Kim and Lynette, had just flew in on a redeye flight and were on zero sleep that morning
If you were feeling gangster you could order a BOWL of alcohol… I don’t know what was in it, but it DID include fruit… which means it’s basically breakfast food.
Niha and Pari had just arrived, too!
Every now and then people would remember I was there and ask for group photos rather than use their phone. haha! I’m glad they did! I rather everyone be able to get a good shot from Dale & Brooks then settle for a phone pic.
NOTE: Anyone who needs a copy of something, you can also hit me up directly johnremus@gmail and tell me which photo (right click and save, or just tell me the filenmae)
Siena was staring me down ALL weekend. I’m sure it was something like “I see you with that camera.. i’m just gonna dog you any time you’re in my field of vision, homie!” Basically we’re besties. That’s prob what it means.
Omar, with his mother-in-law and wife!
Dale and Brooks did an awesome job of bouncing around and chatting with all their guests though
So only a handful of the family goes to the rehearsal… But you guys get to check it out since I was there, too, of course.
So who recognizes this? You guys all saw Hunger Games 2. Right?
Look familiar now?
The wedding was going to be at the Swan House and Historical Center!
And… speaking of history..
The Allies and Axis powers were on display that afternoon. Irony at it’s finest for a gay wedding rehearsal in the South.
If I recall, everyone is laughing at the photos they were already taking with so much war artifacts on display!
And there was also a huge table of old rifles right in the middle of what was going to be the aisle for the wedding.
“Who wants to carry the grenade launcher tomorrow?”
Mr. Andrews asking a few questions after the run though.
So Dale is actually laughing and turning to me to say “This is RIDICULOUS! You’re getting this (these photos of this Nazi stuff), right?”
One more quick walk through.. for FREEDOM!
Wedding planner Christopher going over a few things with Sean, who would be performing the ceremony
The Muñoz’s heading over to the reception area.
Christopher explaining where guests are going to be walking tomorrow to get to the reception.
“Don’t pay attention to this wedding stuff.. my design is going to be completely different”
Discussing a few details about the reception.
Day 2: Rehearsal Dinner at Ecco
Because Dale and Brooks are both amazing – and roll hard – they rented out one of their favorite restaurants for dinner service for everyone!
Basically this was how I was imagining Dale and Brooks when it came to things this whole weekend…
The reality is that Brooks and Dale had a LOT of family and friends who made the trip for their wedding. So they were generous enough to host dinner for EVERYONE. It also happens that the cost of things is reasonably cheaper in Atlanta than back home in California where we all live.
Dale later told me “We had three times the wedding (here in Atlanta) for the same price (as back home in California).”
“Oh good! John’s here! We were JUST going to take a photo!” – Hilary
The first thing I heard when I walked into Ecco. Haha!
“Is it too early in the night for a selfie?” – Sarah
Old friends AND past brides and grooms of mine. I photographed both couple’s weddings!
The restaurant was looking great! I have a feeling that Christopher (left, standing) had been there a while overseeing things
Five course dinner ahead!
Another open bar!
And another tab we all missed maxing out!
Dale and Brooks provided their wedding favors a day early.
They’re Hangover Kits! Comes with a sleep mask, extra strength aspirin, and a 5 hr energy! Because we still had a day and half to go!
Espresso to stay awake, champagne because it’s a party!
Double fisting, properly.
Christopher was the only other guy that was “on” the whole weekend like myself.
He looked much better than I did though, I was underdressed by comparison the whole weekend.
I don’t know what Omar just said, but Denay is clearly heartbroken. Bad husband!
Mr. Andrews was busy laughing and chatting the whole night, too
Dale and Brooks hadn’t been sitting long before they were once again up and walking tables socializing.
The hardest part of a wedding, in regards to time, is seeing everyone. These two did an awesome job of making the rounds all weekend.
Mrs. McCoy chatting with the Dwelle and Andrews families
Dale and Brooks thanking everyone for attending.
They talked about how this restaurant was one of their favorites during the short time they lived in Atlanta together. So it meant a lot that they could share it, here, now, with friends and family.
Everyone gathered around for a slide show of Dale & Brooks growing up, and later their lives together
Packed house! Haha! They literally filled the whole restaurant with their guests. There wouldn’t have been space for other patrons even if it was open to the public that night.
Definitely emotional, too. Seeing all the photos of their childhood and growing up was very sweet
Mom and Dad Andrews laughing at the photos
Now we were toward the end and catching up to today. Lots of great photos of their lives together traveling, etc. There were even four or five of my photos in there!
Shortly after the floor was opened up to guests who wanted to say something.
Brooks’ older sister Tracey got up to speak about her brother, and Dale. Cutest part for me was that she calls Brooks “Brooky” because that’s what older sisters are for, right? To always be your older sister because even as adults you’re still their baby brother..
And no sibling speech is complete without an embarrassing story…
All the speeches were very sweet and very heartfelt. Whether if it was about Dale & Brooks’ relationship being such a bright spot amongst friends in and around the LGBT community, what their love meant to everyone, or even what their success individually and, more-so, together did to inspire everyone else.
Mrs. Andrews got up to speak, too
Jai, an old friend got up to say a few words about growing with Dale.
Brother in law of Dale, Omar
Omar talked about how excited he was when he heard Brooks would be joining the family and that it meant he was gaining another brother
Brooks’ older brother Travis got up to speak. He talked about how happy he was for Brooks and how proud he was watching him grow up
Andddd we all have that one speech that should get cut off… and Dale wasted no time there!
And the “Sorry, I was trying to this…” explanation of his speech. lol!
Day 3: The Wedding Day
Dale and Brooks spent the morning golfing together. Family and Friends spent the morning sleeping off the night before and exploring the city or nearby restaurants. I know several also checked out the nearby Jazz Festival that was going on. When I caught up that afternoon with Dale and Brooks and asked about their golf game Dale said “Brooks had a great game! I…. had fun.” Ha! Best response.
There were far fewer “frills” than I’m used to shooting at a wedding. But the couple items that Brooks and Dale had were still sharp looking.
They’re only half-ready and already looking awesome!
I honestly wasn’t sure if they were going to get ready together or separately. But the photos that resulted from the two of them getting ready as a couple were super cute
Brooks trying to figure out the slider to adjust Dale’s vest
Time to get those ties on
Brooks laughed and immediately said, I need a mirror to do this right..
Dale goofing off in the background because he didn’t want to attempt to tie his bowtie. Plus the neck button was a bit tight
Watching these guys get all done up really made me want to buy a tailored suit
Dale and Brooks both wore placket (hidden button) style shirts. The best part in my opinion is that if you look closely Dale’s is blue while Brooks’ is red… so they’re appropriately representing West Coast vs. East Coast.
Basically if a gang fight breaks out at their wedding, they’re staying true to their home-coasts. hahaha!
Checking messages before we head out and letting friends know when the shuttle will arrive
Once downstairs we started meeting up with family to head to the venue and start photos
Mom and Dad arrived!
Omar helping his father-in-law by tying his bowtie for him
Full busload to the Swan House for photos! Everyone that needed to be ready early for photos was ready on time!
After arriving at the Swan House Brooks’ parents and family were already there waiting for us
The soon-to-be Mr. and Mrs. Kettlety!
Custom embroidery with the date of the wedding, and Dale and Brooks’ initials
Omar also walked up and tied Dale’s bowtie when he noticed that it wasn’t done yet.
Not long after we started all the family photos out in the garden.
Why didn’t I jump into this photo?!? My brides and grooms!
So the Andrews and Dwelle parents wanted a photo together and without the grooms! AND they laughed about it!
I did have the foresight to jump into this photo. Three wedding couples of mine! So cool to have been a part of all their lives
“So… are we done?”
And of course we had to get some photos of just the grooms! Most important photos that day!
It was a breezy afternoon at this point. Family were relaxing before the cocktail hour that was starting soon
The next bit of time was set aside for mostly video. The guys, getting ready for a few various shots the video crew would be doing.
I was getting some general shots around the video team at this point
But when video was done I just left Brooks and Dale to talk among themselves. Then you get sweet moments like this.
And then video sees that it’s a sweet moment so they jump back in and do a few more clips :)
Checkin’ out some of the clips
Christopher stopped by briefly to clarify a few things and see how everything was going
Then it was time for Dale’s big video moment!
Heading over the wedding area
We only took a few photo inside since they’re ridiculously strict about being inside the house.
This was about the time the guys looked out back and saw all their guests down below enjoying the cocktail hour and socializing. Brooks kinda laughed as he pointed out that he wanted to go join the party.
Seriously everyone, if you leave wedding couples alone for even five minutes they’ll soon be off in their own world again and those are the shots you take.
Food for the grooms since they were not allowed to leave the area for food and drink.
Practicing with the selfie stick
Everyone beginning to take their seats. It was a decent walk from backyard – probably more of a hike. So it took a bit to get everyone up there
The dad’s walking down, starting the ceremony off.
This strings band was great! During the cocktail hour they were mixed with a DJ, and the combo was a really cool blend of music
Brooks, being escorted down the aisle by his mother.
And then Dale was escorted down by his mom!
Brooks was the lucky one that got to watch his groom come down the aisle!
Awee! Look at that grin!
Sean, opening up the ceremony and welcoming everyone there
Among the first things he said? How great the grooms, and everyone else, were looking… and that it was going to be a good looking wedding ceremony!!
SO LET’S TAKE A SELFIE!
“And while you guys take that selfie, I’m going to stand over here and take one as well.”
Seriously though guys… why isn’t this on Facebook yet? Or Instagram?
I’ve been checking the #beauxoverbelles hashtag and I haven’t seen it yet…
I realized partway through the ceremony that the aisle was so wide it made the images look a little lonely..
Denay and Tracey got up to share a speech about Dale and Brooks
Denay and Tracey pointed out the speech was “highly edited” by Brooks and Dale
Brooks’ reaction is kinda like “Well…. yeah…”
And Dale’s was kind of “Well.. that’s true. We edited it…”
Denay and Tracey went back and forth talking about growing up with their brothers
Pointing out things about them as individuals and as a couple
Like how Brooks’ fashion taste improved tenfold after meeting Dale.
But with all the small jokes it was still a very sweet speech of how they grew up. Tracey spoke of her brother accomplishing so much in life but having to leave Georgia to first find himself, and later find Dale.
And they girls wrapped up their story with the moments that each of the guys went home, to their respective families with news:
“I met a boy..”
A near-full house with only a couple people that couldn’t make it!
Brooks’ niece Aspen sang
She did a wonderful job, too
And with that, it was time to exchange vows
Among other things, Dale vowed to wear the proper team colors for Georgia Football days, haha!
Then it was Brooks’ turn
And among other things he vowed to remember to make the bed – even when Dale’s work has him traveling and away from Brooks
Brooks’ other niece, Andie, was in charge of rings!
She was so shy about walking up! It was super cute.
I could be totally wrong and that she was just really excited. Either way, it was sweet
Exchanging of rings
First was Brooks
Then was Dale
A couple more words…
And now they’re married!
You may kiss your husband!
Married! Nearly 5 years to the day of their first date!
Heading to the reception
I ran inside ahead of everyone to get a few empty room photos.
And WOW, Christopher did an absolutely amazing job!
Holy cake, dude
This room looked amazing
Christopher Confero, ladies and gentlemen. He rocked it out with all this.
Whenever I get married, I might need Christopher to be there..
Going over a few details about how things are going to get started that night
Ok, i’m including this photo for a reason… I was doing a quick light check on the doors that Dale and Brooks would be entering through…
You’ll see why it’s funny I even bothered in a moment
So behind the doors are Dale and Brooks, along with Sean.
Dale and Brooks were getting ready for their entrance. Sean just happened to be there with us.
Well right after this high five, we realized that me, Brooks, and Dale were all LOCKED OUT of the reception!!!
No joke! We could not get in and had NO key!!! We were all banging on the doors as the DJ was announcing Brooks and Dale!
Fortunately one of the photobooth people heard us and was close enough to the doors to let us in!
Success! we got in to the party!!
Dale and Brooks, thanking everyone for coming
And telling everyone to get ready for a long night of partying!
While everyone was enjoyed the first course of dinner I headed back to the Swan House. Now that the sun was down I could get some photos of the mansion that weren’t too bright and contrasty.
Also the two wedding drink choices for the day.
And for those trying to read how to make that Dark & Stormy – it’s Mt. Gay Run, Ginger Beer, and a twist of lime
Back at the reception the guys were up and socializing between dinner courses
Out in the hall Dale, Brooks, and Mrs. Dwelle took a minute to call Dale’s step brothers back home on the west coast so they could say hello.
Chatting a bit and congratulating Brooks and Dale
Dale’s high school crew of friends!
Hilary couldn’t make a face long enough to not laugh! Sorry Hilary! I didn’t notice or I would have reshot it for you guys! haha!
Christopher, announcing that it was time for the first dance as a married couple
Siblings of the grooms watching
Next was the Mothers and Sons dance
Everyone was smiling
And then they switched dance partners!
Mothers and new-Sons dance!
Next was cake cutting
Dale was not interested in the frosting bite… but come on, no one like fondant. It just works great for cakes. haha!
Three-cake sampler! Get to try every type!
Now it was time to socialize, dance, and talk to all the guests!
Sean, being ridiculous. I never knew how much that I never knew I missed this guy since high school. hahaha!
So Christopher told Dale and Brooks that they had to get people out on the dance floor to get the night started… I went over to the high school group since I knew they’d get out and kick things off. Worked great and the rest of the guests followed suit pretty quickly
Brooks came out to join Dale who was breaking it down with his friends. Look how happy Dale was to see him on the dance floor with him!
Then Mr. Dwelle got out there to dance, too!
It was either Denay or Omar, I believe, who said the last time Mr. Dwelle got out and danced that much was at their wedding! (the Muñoz wedding)
I always run around and get this photo if there is a past-couple of mine at a wedding!
Also had to get a photo with the Barrons!
And my last couple at wedding! Ernesto and Sarah!
And at this point I ran around getting selfies with old friends at the ceremony. After all, I wanted to be in a couple photos!
Another dance off between father and son
The Dwelle fam
Christopher got up on stage, and with one of the Mom-bouquets from the ceremony, announced that Dale was going to have to come up and throw a bouquet.
Dale laughed and said he was totally down to do it!
So Christopher announced that all single men and women had to gather around this time
So everyone made their way to the floor
And Dale danced to Single Ladies that the DJ was playing during all this
(Kim running out of the way there at the bottom)
And all the way to the back!
“But he’s not single!”
Alright, back to dancing!
I’m going to bet the song was something Michael Jackson..
The one photo I always make sure to get at every wedding. Me with the couple.
And after so many other weddings attended together, it’s very cool to be here photographing theirs.
So as the night came to a close the DJ played Last Dance, by Donna Summer, as the last song of the night
Everyone got into it, too!
And from what I could tell, after the song ended, as people were still on that energy-high, Christopher ran on stage and asked the DJ to play one more song.
So the DJ broke out Like A Prayer, by Madonna…
And whatever it was about that moment and song, EVERYONE was down.
Dale and Brooks were laughing and dancing
The entire dance floor was surrounding them dancing, jumping, and singing along
Seriously, everyone was one group at that moment
I can only imagine how awesome the video was from all this.
I nearly captured video myself with my camera, but didn’t because there was a dedicated video staff still shooting
After the song ended Dale laughingly called it “the one big gay moment of the wedding”
Cheers and applause from the guests, and a final dance-floor-kiss between Dale and Brooks after an amazing reception and ceremony
Then it was hugs and goodbyes as everyone slowly made their way out to shuttles as the night came to a close
More goodbyes and thank yous
And all the guests still looking great after a night of dancing.
I felt exhausted, no way I looked as good as everyone else seemed to
Day 4: Farewell Brunch
And not to end things at the reception, Dale and Brooks continued their hospitality and hosted everyone still in town the next morning to a goodbye brunch!
We were all hosted at Empire State South for mimosas, bloody mary’s, a coffee bar, and some of the best damn biscuits and eggs I’ve ever had. Just typing this I’m once again mad at myself for not being more-hungry that morning. That food was delicious and I didn’t eat enough of it. There were even platefuls of bacon for you bacon lovers!
This turned out to be an awesome last chance to chat with everyone a bit more before leaving town.
French Toast, yogurt & granola… seriously. I should have eaten so much more food than I did
Half asleep still we all chatted and caught up on other past friends since we all keep in touch with different people from school days. It was fun to hear what everyone has been up to.
Everyone passing through saying final hello/goodbyes
Little Siena was staring me down multiple times that morning too. I tried to get a photo but it just didn’t come out well. haha!
Brooks chatting with his dad
“Hey John, this is the photo right here. This is how you start the morning!” – Mr. Andrews
Christopher came that morning to see everyone, too!
And the weather was awesome. As the brunch inside came to a close, everyone moved outside to the patio. It was mid-70s and breezy. Perfect day. Well, perfect until that night when it absolutely poured rain and shut down the airport while I was waiting for my flight. But everything for the wedding that weekend was perfect, and that’s all that mattered.
The last group of friends still hanging out that weekend. Most people had left early, or had since left for the airport.
The very last goodbyes among everyone. Even Brooks mentioned to me that he was tired at this point, and ready to relax that day after the group of guests started to break up.
And as for me…
I grabbed lunch with Lynette and Kim before they headed to the airport. Then I sat a bit talking to Jai and Madeline before they, too, left for the airport. I spent the rest of the afternoon sorting photos until my shuttle to the airport arrived for my flight that night. It was raining by then, and the storm got so bad the airport was briefly closed and my flight delayed.
No bother, though. I got home eventually.
After four days of events, tons of wonderful activities, and seeing several old friends I hadn’t seen in 10+ years, I was in a great mood even though I was exhausted. I shot over 2,500 photos during Brooks and Dale’s wedding weekend. But it was incredible.
It’s been very special to me to be a part of of so many of my friends lives and spend time with all their families. Dale and Brooks round out the last wedding of a group of friends from high school that grew up and remained close over the years. I was lucky enough to be a part of SIX of those weddings. Additionally I was able to be part of two weddings in the Dwelle family.
So to Dale and Brooks, I just want to say Thank You one final time. It’s been a blast over the years. Your wedding was amazing. And I was thrilled to be able to share that with you.
To those who read this far – I hope you enjoyed the images, whether you were there at the wedding in person, or lived it vicariously through these photos.
Thanks for reading, everyone!
