January 4, 2014: I loved being part of Marianne and RJ’s beautiful winter wedding. This was the very first wedding I’ve photographed in 2014, and if this is any indication of how wonderful 2014 is going to be, then I’m pumped. Marianne and RJ are were just so happy on their wedding day and are such incredibly warm people that it was really a joy to be part of their day.
Also, they had so many personal touches throughout their wedding that just made it very special. The song RJ wrote to Marianne was one of the most awesome things I’ve heard at a wedding, and Kevin and I were lucky enough to get to hear the sneak preview while he was practicing before the ceremony. Loved Marianne’s long veil made by her mother and her grandmother’s pearl bracelet. And instead of hiding away as guests were coming in, they greeted everyone as they came in for the ceremony, which made things feel very relaxed and intimate. I’ve had the privilege of shooting so many Catholic ceremonies, but I have never seen a rosary ceremony like that and I thought it was beautiful.
Marianne and RJ, hope you enjoy these images! Thanks again for letting Kevin and I be part of it!
