There were so many moments, and characters to Michael and Hannah’s story. This story was about love, happiness, and family. I knew about the love and happiness before hand because I was able to document Hannah and Michael’s engagement shoot a few weeks prior to the wedding. Yet as I looked through these images, there was such a great presence of generations that stood out to me. The generation that has been here for some time, and has seen, heard, and experienced so much in this life–they have changed the pampers of those they watch get married. They remember them as young children, and have been delighted at their growth and independence. Then there is the new generation, and those that marry and change pampers today will — God willing – be there to watch them get married, and begin a new generation of their own.
It was a joy to capture and document this phenomenon of humanity–this blessing– in Hannah and Michael’s family. May these seeds of love, happiness, and generations continue to flourish.
While I did not post everything from the wedding in this blog post, it should be noted that so much love and effort went into making this day the wonder that it was. Most of the wedding was DIY, from the cake made by the bride, to the bridal robe that the bride wore while getting ready, and the flower girl dresses designed and sowed by the bride. So much work was put in by Michael and the Father of the bride with the centerpieces, and so much more! Below are some of the vendors and family that contributed to the day's events.
