Every once in a while, a couple comes along so full of charm, love, and happiness, that I know I'll never forget them. Needless to say, Marjorie and Chris are definitely one of those couples.
Their ceremony took place at St Gianna Catholic Church, which was very fitting for them, because I've always been able to tell these two love God very much, and their faith means so much to them.
Marjorie finished getting ready . . .
. . . while Chris waited excitedly at the end of the aisle.
Few moments compare to the moment he sees her as his bride for the first time!
Husband and wife!!
This bridal party was a great group to work with! My second shooter, Allison, was fabulous help and, among other things, captured the shots of the gentlemen!
Was she not a simply beautiful bride?
At the reception, the love was continually present. Toasts were both hilarious and heart-warming . . .
. . . including the part where the best man invited the groom to sing a song they wrote together.
During the first dance as husband and wife, these two transitioned from a soft, romantic song to a rolicking swing dance!
Towards the end of the evening, we snuck outside for a few more quick photos while the sun began to soften. I am so glad we did! These are easily some of my favorites from the day.
How adorable are these two?!
Quite possibly the best part of the day, though, came at the very end of my time with this couple and family. These two stepped up to the microphone together and sang a heartfelt duet of Ingrid Michaelson's "The Way I Am." It was nearly as wonderful as these two are together!
Congratulations, Marjorie and Chris!! Your day was perfect, and I was so honored to be part of it! Here's to many, many years of happiness to come!
