These two enjoyed the heck out of their day, and we love that.
Sarah and Andrew have a devoted, joy-filled, super fun kind of love. They are so solid together and we could tell that pretty instantly during their Engagement Session. They’re the type of people who could lose everything, and if they still had each other, be totally satisfied. We loved their wedding day at Riverwood Mansion because of all the personal touches — Sarah’s stunning gown was once her grandmother’s, and she had it beautifully altered to be so unique and perfect for her. Her necklace was made out of her great grandmother’s diamond ring, and her bracelet included the diamond from her grandmother’s engagement ring. They displayed images of the generations of women in her family wearing the same dress. The precious heirlooms woven throughout the day in such a graceful and intentional way was so special.
Beyond the details, we loved seeing all the excitement and emotion bursting out of these two — from their first look to the ceremony to dancing the night away, they were totally focused on each other and they were a joy to capture.
