as i watched them interact throughout the day, i couldn’t help but think how different it was. different than the way the movies tell you it should be, different than the way the world tells you it should be. oh yes, they had the sparks…he couldn’t keep his eyes off of her and she turned almost school-girlish in her expressions when she caught him in the act.
but it went so much deeper than that. after sharing with them one of the most important days they’ll ever have together and hearing their hushed whispers when activity swirled around them, i know that he loves her for the beauty that lies far beneath a pretty gown on a pretty girl. and she loves him not because of what he does for her but because but because of how she was created to joyfully serve in their new life together. kyle and kelli, i so appreciate your asking me to join you for your beautiful wedding day…it was an honor for me to take these photographs. much love to you!
(this, men, is how your bride wants you to look at her on your wedding day. it’s clear that he had never seen any woman more beautiful than the one he saw standing before him at this moment…sigh.)
with special thanks…
