They say when you meet the love of your life, time stops, and that's true. - Big Fish
August feels like it was so long ago now. I've opened the draft for this wedding multiple times, but haven't had the opportunity to actually sit down and finish it until now. 2019 has been a wild ride and has flown by. I can't believe it's December. With only one wedding left to deliver, I finally feel like have the time to sit and think back on this gorgeous August wedding.
Morgan and Steven. I don't know if there was a more personal wedding to me this year. I first met Steven 13 years ago, when my family moved to West Virigina and joined a small church in Colliers. Back then, I was a broody almost 17 year-old and he was a goofy kid. His family has become very dear to me. His older sister, Amy, is my good friend and went to Haiti with me last year. His parents are the worship leader and sound technician that I work closely with every week. Having such close ties to this family made it so incredibly special for me to witness Steven's marriage to Morgan, and it was an absolute honor to photograph it.
There is a certain moment at every wedding where you can actually feel time stop because everything is focused on the bride and groom. Sometimes that moment is during the portraits, or the first look, maybe it's during the first dance. For Morgan and Steven, it was all of the above. Since that first glimpse of Morgan walking down the aisle, the world stopped for them, and you could absolutely see it in their eyes. Nothing could ruin this day for Morgan and Steven. I loved the moment when Steven wiped his eyes as his gorgeous bride walked toward him and they saw each other for the first time. Morgan's eyes were glistening with tears too. I had tears in my eyes, in fact, I'm pretty sure tears were flowing all around.
It was a beautiful day full of blush hued dresses and florals and a grand scenic view. Dream Mountain Ranch in Albright, WV definitely has a lot to offer and boast about. The acres of lush hills and open skies were really a dream come true. They chose such a fitting name. And Funomenon Entertainment was amazing, with great crowd participation and impressive mixing. Everything was perfect, from the catering to the cupcakes, the bridal look and all the details. Days like this make what we do so rewarding.
Congratulations to Morgan and Steven!
