Hi. It’s me, Sonni. Your friendly, neighborhood photographer who has disappeared for a while on this ole blog, but I’m back and I Girl Scout Promise to never again take such an extensive hiatus (or at least try my best not to!).
Usually one would fear a winter wedding. Cold, winds, potentially less than willing bridal party. However, these two plus their AMAZING bridal party totally rocked the entire day. Every single member was supportive. No one complained about the cold or super high winds we were experiencing. Everyone was there for Brad and Emily, to give them truly the best day ever. What more could anyone ask for?!
Not to mention the overwhelming love from both families (who love EACH OTHER by the way, which I’m still in awe of watching both sets of parents give compliments to one another on how well they’ve done rasing their respective child, hugging, the whole nine) left everyone feeling nothing but pure wedded bliss.
Emily’s dad gave a profound speech that included compliment after compliment of the man she was marrying; her dad even told ALL the married men in the room to take a lesson from Brad on how to treat their wives. Um, can you say teary perfection?!
Brad and Emily were such troopers the entire day, refusing to let the weather get in the way of their best day ever excitement and allowed us to photograph them until WE saw it fit to be finished. Not a peep of complaining. After all, chilly weather DOES make it easier to snuggle!
Mr. and Mrs. Bradley MacKeen, I can’t thank you two enough for allowing us the sincere honor of capturing your best day ever. You both are the kindest, most beautiful souls and we are so lucky to call you two friends.
I truly hope you two love these photos as much as I do and I can simply not wait to see what your future together holds!
