This year has been an incredible year of weddings. I feel so fortunate that many of my couples have become friends of the course of our time working together – Kadie and Matt are no exception. I met Mr. & Mrs. Derby this time last year shortly after Matt proposed and Kadie had just started her planning. Kadie’s vibrant personality and pure excitement over her wedding sucked me right in.
Their wedding was gorgeous! From the bridal party in their soft flowing pink dresses, to the floral arrangements and the views; I was in awe. Musket Ridge has some of the most incredible views from the reception site, which is set high up on the hill top overlooking the golf course. Beside the physical things that made their wedding beautiful, there were many touching moments. Moment where even I struggle to hold back shedding a tear and Kadie’s 1st look with her dad was one of them. It was one of the sweetest and most emotional moments I have photographed. Kadie also chose to remember her grandmother by releasing butterflies before their vows in honor of her grandmother calling her “my little butterfly”.
Kadie and Matt share one of the sweetest loves I have ever seen. I have photographed them 3 times over the last year and each time I am around them and I can see their love growing deeper. I hope that all of these special moments stick with you as you journey through life hand in hand. Thank you for trusting me to capture this beginning for you!
XOXO – j
