Brooke and Josh
We loved photographing Brooke and Josh’s wedding at Double C Ranch in September! Brooke had a vision for a Bohemian style wedding with vintage oriental rugs, a macrame ceremony backdrop, gorgeous Eucalyptus greenery with geometric centerpieces and my new fav Raleigh Photo Booth, the Lil’ Photo Bus! Brooke and Josh’s adorable Dachsund, Levi was also a very special part of the wedding day, performing the important duty of Ring Bearer! There were so many special moments during this day, but one of my very favorites was the moment that Brooke and Josh exchanged letters. They stood back to back so they wouldn’t see each other. There was an instant shift in the hurried energy of the day as they read what each other had written. This is what we mean, when we talk about savoring. It’s quieting all the things that vie for attention on a wedding day and focusing on the things that matter most. It’s enjoying the moment completely. When Brooke finished reading her letter, she took a deep breath and closed her eyes. Josh smiled from ear to ear as he took in each word she wrote! It was such a perfect moment.
Brooke and Josh, thank you so much for inviting us along to document your wedding day! We loved meeting your friends and families and photographing each amazing piece of your wedding day. We are wishing you all the best as you enter this fun and beautiful season as husband and wife! Cheers to many more good times and amazing memories!
