Love. Unity. Laughter. Belonging. Family. Beauty. Cherished. These are just a couple of the words that come to mind when I think back on Elisa and Curtice’s wedding day. It was one of the most beautiful, sacred wedding celebrations I have had the privilege of participating in and for so many reasons.
When you watch Elisa and Curtice together, you just see how they love one another. You see them looking at only each other. You see all the fun and adventure. You see their hearts and minds intertwined. You see two people so meant to be together. And you see two families becoming one as well.
A couple years ago, I was able to capture Elisa’s sister Annie’s wedding day and I have so many fond memories from that day too. So it was such a wonderful surprise when I got the email from Elisa asking if I could photograph her wedding. And it made me remember all the great, special and hilarious traditions this family has. If you’re wondering why I said “hilarious”, it’s because of their “wedding blues” song their entire family (yes, like thirty people) performs at each reception. It totally brought me back to Annie and Tim’s wedding when they did a similar, just as entertaining and just as custom, song then.
This day was just so unique – centered around love for one another, love for their families and love for Christ. One of my hands down, favorite memories from wedding season 2016 is singing the Doxology during Elisa and Curtice’s ceremony. About a hundred people together singing such beautiful, powerful words a cappella. There’s not a lot that can top that. It was absolutely gorgeous, gives me chills just thinking about it.
Okay, okay, on to the pictures. Here are some of my favorite moments from Elisa and Curtice’s wedding. Thank you so much you two, for allowing me to be part of such a beautiful, special and fun wedding celebration! I pray God continues to guide you as husband and wife to honor one another and honor Him. You two hold a special place in my heart.
