Tori and Will had an unusually warm day for their May wedding, but we were all just grateful that the sun was shining and there was no rain in sight. I think more than a few prayers were prayed for clear skies that day, and those prayers were answered. :)
They had chosen to do a first look prior to the ceremony, so we walked each of them outside under a canopy of trees where they stood back-to-back and read the letters they had written for each other. A few glistening tears were shed as they turned the pages, and then they tucked the notes away and took a deep breath. She turned towards him, and after a tap on the shoulder, Will turned around to see Tori. More tears rolled down their smiling faces as they took in this sweet moment. They spent the rest of their day close to one another, hand-in-hand and ready to say those two words-- I Do.
The next few hours were spent with their wedding party and family, visiting with each other between pictures and trying to stay as cool as possibly in this Tennessee heat. When the time for the ceremony came, the wedding party walked down the isle and the crowd stood as Tori and her dad walked down to meet Will. More happy tears were shed, and the special words were spoken. Blue skies shone above as the bride and groom kissed, and everyone clapped and cheered as they made their way back down the isle as Mr. & Mrs. I have a feeling a few people were clapping and cheering in Heaven at that moment as well.
Theirs was such a special day, and we were incredibly honored to be a part of it! Congratulations, Will & Tori! Thank you so much for asking us to be your photographers.
