The first time I met Kim was at a Thanksgiving at my sister-in-law’s house. It was quite funny because she looks just like my sister-in-law so I had to do a double take. However, from there we didn’t see much of each other. That was until my brother’s wedding cruise, she was there along with a few other people, so we got acquainted rather quickly.
Of course, I photographed my brother’s wedding and she saw the photos and was raving. She loved them so much and she had already decided she wanted me to photograph her wedding, which didn’t even have a date at the time! That was, until she messaged me on Facebook and told me the great news! She finally set a date, picked a location and wanted me to be the one to take the photos. I felt very honored and special since this wedding was going to be tiny, maybe a total of 12 other people, immediate family only.
I had only met Chris for a few minutes prior to the wedding day but when I saw Kim look at him, and the look they shared, I knew that these two were meant for each other. Their love didn’t need a fancy, expensive venue, nor an extravagant reception. They just needed their families, and the love for one another. This is the second very small wedding that I’ve done, the other at city hall, but I am really falling in love with these intimate elopements.
I wish both Kim and Chris the best of luck in their new life together and I know that they will continue to love each other, each and every day, for the rest of their lives.
