Folks, I did it again. I got behind on blogging. Really, I could put the blame on a number of things, but instead, I’ll just say… I’m sorry! Thanks for being patient :) The weddings aren’t over, yet, and I have plenty of sessions to share – so don’t fret – I’ll be sharing many pictures once I get back into a routine!
For now, I want to share with you some portraits and ceremony shots from one of my September weddings. Anne and I go way back. Many of my youth group memories involve this amazing lady and it was such a joy to be able to capture her wedding day for her and Austin! These two were married at Grace Chapel EPC just a few weeks ago. (Anne + I grew up there and it’s the same church where Jonathan and I got married almost 2 years ago!) Here are a few of favorites from their beautiful autumn wedding…Now, THIS was an original twist on the unity candle! The idea behind this “unity symbol” comes from the story of Hernando Cortez. In 1519, Cortez settled on the shores of Mexico and immediately had his crew burn the ships. The reason? They were going to figure out how to survive or die. So, as they entered into the marriage commitment, Austin + Anne burned the ships as a symbol that they were never going back to their old lives. They are committed to each other now – ’til death do they part!
