“Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl; and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.”
-Nicole Krauss, The History of Love-
I don’t know why, but the day of Scott and Andrea’s wedding I woke up really nervous! Nervous that we wouldn’t have nice light or find a pretty location. Nervous that we’d have an accident on the way there. Nervous that I wouldn’t meet expectations. Nervous that things wouldn’t go according to plan and that would affect the mood of the day. And for the life of me I can’t tell you why?! I rarely (if ever) get nervous for weddings, but there I was Carol… a nervous Nelly. And so I said a little prayer in the car on the way there- and before I knew it a peace settled over me.
When I got back into the car that night to drive home- I just laughed at how silly my nerves were earlier on in the day. Yes, there were parts of the day where things didn’t go quite according to plan or schedule…and my nerves were like…”You see- told you something was going to go squonk!” But there was just this overwhelming joy and love for this amazing couple and their guests that left me so energized! And everything didn’t just turn out okay- it turned out great! I absolutely ADORED this wedding and drove away with such a grateful and full heart for having been able to shoot it! Loved, loved, loved it! #stupidnerves #fornothing
Scott and Andrea got married at Old Mac Daddy in Elgin on the most perfect summers day. Their bridal party have an infectious joy and camaraderie and we had such great laughs together on the shoot. Topped off with gorgeous golden hour light and this beautiful in love couple- I was in photographer’s heaven!
To Scott and Andrea- I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed your wedding!! Thank you for choosing me to capture your special day on camera. Your love and friendship is so special. Wishing you a very blessed marriage filled with immense amounts of laughter, fun, peace and memorable moments. You guys rock!
Sending so much love xxx
