If you were to look up the definition of "anti-bridezilla" or "low-key bride" you'd find a photo of Molly. I can't say enough good things about the laid back, beautiful wedding day of Molly and Charles. They had planned an outdoor ceremony at the end of August but in typical Seattle fashion, it rained. The ceremony was moved inside without a single bit of stress and the rest of their day proceeded as planned. The Hollywood Schoolhouse is a perfect venue for either an indoor or outdoor wedding! Molly has two older sisters whom I've photographed before. It was great to see so many familiar faces and Molly's mom made me feel like an invited guest instead of a hired photographer. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to photograph this special day for Molly and Charles. Congrats again, you two!
It doesn't matter if you've done a first look or if you are seeing each other for the first time as you walk down the aisle, the excitement, tension, and emotion is the same. I'll admit that I haven't been lucky enough to photograph a man totally sobbing as his bride comes down the aisle (yes, I'd love that, haha) but even in their stoic moments you can see the love written all over their faces. Sometimes it's in the deep breath that they take the moment they see you, sometimes it's a giant smile plastered all over their face, sometimes it's how they hold back the emotion, and sometimes it's the little grin that is reserved just for you. I love it all.
They all say the same thing, "Yes, that is who I am about to marry and I love her"
And yes, I'm feeling particularly mushy today. Happy Monday :)
