Chad and Julia were married this past weekend at Meadowlark Gardens, and every single thing about the day made it obvious that Chad and Julia's top priority in life are their relationships with other people, with their loving friends and family.
Chad and Julia had a justice of the peace ceremony shortly before the full ceremony, officiated by a longtime neighbor and family friend, and it was during this latter ceremony that the officiant spoke of living in the moment, and appreciating the small, beautiful things in life. The way he worded it was eloquent and perfect, and actually hit home deeply with me, the photographer! I think this one very small example speaks to the kind of people they choose to surround themselves with.
There were many more moments such as this; Julia and her father dancing to a sweet song he had written for her as a small child, the numerous photographs of friends and family hanging up and gracing the welcome table, the heartfelt toasts, the many hugs. I hope everyone enjoys the photographs below, and will join me in congratulating the newlyweds! Hurray wedding!
