YOU GUYS. Oh, my, lanta. What happens when two gorgeous girls fall in love, have the loveliest intimate wedding, and celebrate with a fantastic reception complete with delicious Italian food? You get kickass bridal portraits that look like they should be hung in a fine art gallery. (But perhaps I’m biased.)
I’ve never seen so much love and happiness shared by any couple. It was almost tangible. Everyone deserves a love like these two share. What can I say about Candess and Jess that these images don’t already capture?
There’s so much more to their story than just these images however. They have hands down the sweetest and most unique engagement stories. Candess was hard at work planning Jess’s birthday getaway trip, she was so tied up in all the details she had no idea what Jess had hidden up her sleeve! While visiting the coast Candess noticed what seemed to be a little globe, knowing that there were hide and seek games where people hide glass orbs she got excited thinking she found one. As she approached she realized that instead it was a glass jar. Both Candess and Jess were nearly swept into the ocean as Jess got down on one knee and asked Candess to marry her, and in case you didn’t see it coming… she said yes.
They were surrounded by everyone they loved on their wedding day, and every single detail was meticulously thought out in a way to reflect their relationship. Even down to their fun cake topper which was custom made from the UK!
Candess looked stunning in her 1950’s styled gown, and the glow from the Christmas trees not only added the perfect touch, it added a warm glow that warmed people’s hearts that day. What girl doesn’t dream of a Christmas wedding? These two girls complement each other perfectly, the crazy to the other’s cool, the outgoing to the other’s introversion. They ground the other in a way that only true, deep, and real love could.
I truly consider myself blessed to have been able to document their wedding day and am so excited that they’re going to have these memories for years to come.
If you or someone you know is looking for a photographer who is going to capture true love in all forms, I would love to chat!
