I was prepared for great things when, after meeting with Molly for the first time, she explained that it must have been fate that brought her to my website. It turns out, Charles proposed on 11/11/11. What a smart man! Little did I know how right-on Molly’s hunch would have been. My recipe for an amazing wedding only includes 2 “ingredients”: personality and LOTS of love. It’s expected that a bride and groom will be giddy in love on their wedding day, but there’s nothing better than a family so filled with love for the couple that they can’t contain their smiles, or friends who will go above and beyond to support them (one of Molly’s bridesmaids HAND-CRAFTED all of the bouquets and boutonnieres from felt … that’s devotion!) The day was filled with lots of special little details that represented Molly and Charles, but perhaps my favorite moment of the day was the vows. Charles and Molly opted to write their own, but Charles decided to surprise Molly by serenading her with a rendition of Brad Paisley’s “Then.” It was one of the most heart-felt moments I’ve ever seen while photographing a wedding. Like I said, he’s a smart man. Congrats, Molly and Charles! Your bliss is infectious.
