Nate + Sharon's Wintery Wedding

February 27, 2015  •  2 Comments

Meet Nate and Sharon!  

This sweet couple tied the knot a few weeks ago on a cold, sunny February afternoon.  Enjoy this glimpse into their love story!

Getting ready...

I love first looks, and this one was no exception.  It's such a privilege to witness these sweet moments when they first see one another on such a long-awaited and much-planned for day.

On a side note, there was a time when I thought I didn't care for winter weddings.  And, yes, I now know that I was crazy!  I knew winter weddings could be beautiful, but photographing this wedding truly convinced me.  I tend to see everything from a portraiture perspective, and often winter conditions aren't ideal for photos since it's, well, cold, and nature tends to tuck away its most colorful outfits and hunkers down to wait for spring like the rest of us.  That said, I genuinely believe there is beauty to be discovered in every season, so when Sharon contacted me to photograph her wedding, I explained that I make shooting portraits outdoors a priority...and of course, her wedding would be in February, and before she signed on to have me photograph her day, was she up for that?  She didn't hesitate for a second with her answer, so I knew that not only was she sweet, she was also brave! 

I kind of adore the shot below.  A gust of wind swept up her train ever so perfectly!

You are lovely, Sharon.

You guys are too cute.

The arched tunnel was practically begging for this photo to happen!

May every bride be surrounded with friends like this on her wedding day.  This is what it means to be rich in friendship.

Love this candid moment of Nate and his buddies.  Invariably, the moments that are happening "in between" turn out to be some of my favorites.

It needs to be said.  These people smiled and laughed their way through photos in very cold temperatures like rock stars and made it look like no big deal.  They huddled in coats while they weren't in front of the camera, and I never heard a single complaint.  You guys were beyond awesome.  Thank you!

Ceremony...

...and a quick little peek at a few of the reception details.

Nate and Sharon had already gone when I saw the sunset God painted to mark the close of their day.  I'm thinking this was the best wedding gift given that day. 

Nate and Sharon, thank you for trusting me to capture your love story.  It was an honor!
