From Matt:One of my favorite photos from our wedding, because it captures how emotional and special that first look moment was for us. Beka is my best friend. The happiness on her face will always remind me of that sweet and fleeting moment together before we started married life.
From Rebekah: One of my favorite images was from our first look…this picture was taken shortly after we had finally seen each other and we are still gaining our composure from our joy and laughter. I love that Matt is still a bit teary eyed and has such a sweet smile.
From Carla:It’s so hard choosing a favorite photo when they are all so beautiful. It really changes by the day! This photo was taken right after our ceremony. I don’t think I realized Nancy was taking photos of us. I love that everyone is smiling to themselves. You can see the happiness in my expression — something I can see that may not be evident to everyone else is the huge weight that had been lifted minutes after our beautiful ceremony.
From James: I love this photo because it is simple, classic, and timeless. I can’t remember exactly what was going through my head at the very moment this shot was taken, although I did feel an immense joy and excitement for the evening and our life together that lay ahead. The day was absolutely perfect. Perhaps the best of my life so far…
Marie-Claire: What a tough question…. again there are too many that are my favorites to be able to just choose one. I love this because we loved our first dance so much. But there are so many from every part of the day that are favorites for the moment that they capture.
From Matthew: This moment is really the first time Jessica and I had been alone together in a (seemingly) long time. The ceremony passed by like a memory and here we were all dressed up in a magical place, mist coming off of the water in the twilight hour, just the two of us. This picture captures our joy, especially Jessica’s beautiful smile.
From Jessica: I love this photo because it captures all of us sharing a moment of pure bliss. I can feel the bright light, the warmth of the sun, and JF’s hand in mine. I can hear the laughter. I am reminded of how special it was to have our friends and family all around us – greeting us with big smiles and showering us with rice (a German tradition) just moments into our marriage. It just looks like so much fun – and it is a moment I treasure. It was probably the first time that day when I was finally relaxed!
From JF: The windswept grasslands in this shot are what drew us to this region. I’m holding Jessica’s arm to support her step on the uneven ground below, and her classic flowing dress is magically reflecting the sun – to me like a galaxy of sparkling stars fallen from the sky to become my bride. For Jessica and me, much of our wedding planing was focused on ways to celebrate our family and friends, but in this moment, in this picture, it’s just her and me, taking all this happiness into our hearts.
