Every single thing about Kendal and Joe’s wedding was from the heart, personal, and full of love. They spent many, many months making bird houses, pinwheels, kites, signs, a custom photo booth backdrop, and the most amazing altar I have ever seen. They wanted their wedding to represent their fun personalities. I was was bouncing around the park like a kid in a colorful candy store admiring and photographing all of the details.
Kendal and Joe decided to see each other before the wedding so we arranged a first look at the park. Joe, who is a master of all trades, was running a little behind because he had to sew a button for one of his groomsmen. When he arrived at the park I got to witness one of the most special moments of my career so far. When Kendal walked up to Joe and tapped him on the shoulder it was like an explosion of nerves was released, you could see and feel it. It was very emotional, I had to fight back tears while shooting. They found so much comfort in each other. Their love was radiating. This is why I always encourage my clients to see each other before the ceremony. Moments like that are what memories are made of.
Though Kendal and Joe spent a lot of time curating the perfect wedding the one thing, the most important thing I remember about the day was that big, colorful love they share for each other. Their friends and family were so supportive and happy for them. It was such a treat to be around. I have been smiling so much editing these.
Thank you to everyone who made the day even more special for Kendal and Joe.
