Where to even begin? Sometimes when you meet someone, you know instantly that there will be a friendship. You just click with each other and know it was meant to be! I met Elizabeth at a bridal show back in January. She came by with some of her bridesmaids, one of whom promptly knocked over my canvas display and broke the easel!! Elizabeth was pretty mortified but it was a perfect ice breaker and we all had a great laugh at the whole situation! I still tell that story! hahaha
Fast forward a few weeks and I got to have an in person consultation with Keith and Elizabeth. They are literally the sweetest people you will ever meet! I immediately noticed a necklace that Elizabeth was wearing. It was silver, with 2 fingerprint pendents. I have the same one. Its my dad’s thumbprint that I’ve worn everyday since my dad passed away. As it turns out, Elizabeth lost both of her parents and wears those fingerprint necklaces as a remembrance piece. At that point in the conversation, it really did feel like I was meant to be a part of their day, and more importantly to capture the joy of their love.
Keith and Elizabeth’s wedding day was one of my favorites! The love that surrounded them was unparalleled and there were so many sweet ways that Elizabeth incorporated her parents into the day. Elizabeth’s brother walked her down the aisle and her uncle’s shared her first dance (which was SO fun!) It was a little chilly outside, but they made their pictures look effortless! Overall, the day was beyond amazing. I felt so welcomed by both families and I’m so excited to share a glance into their day!!
