They say quiet comes before the storm, but on Chris and Kennedy’s wedding day, their silence was a megaphone of peace. Stepping into Kennedy’s getting ready room, I could sense her ease at the thought of soon walking down the aisle to Chris. Her calmness and peace were tangible. The flowers, the dress, even the the other people were just simple addition to the true reason of the day. As I watched Chris see Kennedy for the first time that day, I knew he felt the same. Throughout the day, Kennedy and Chris were completely at ease with one another. Nothing special needed, they just loved being together.
It was obvious that these two learned this love from their families. The intentional gifts, gentle tears, and long hugs were indicators of their families’ bonds. Before the wedding, during the ceremony, and in all those in-between moments, I observed care, respect, and love among all of them. The extra hug after the father-daughter dance, a handshake given from the groom to his grandfather–seeing the love Kennedy and Chris had for others was beautiful.
I hope you enjoy seeing just a highlight of their thoughtful, intimate wedding. May their love for each other and for others be a blessing to you.
Kennedy and Chris, thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your wedding day. I will always cherish the memories these photos help you remember. May God continue to bless you on this new beginning!
