It wasn’t that long ago as I sat in Pam’s chair getting my hair styled we first spoke of Eli. I listened to her voice change as she told me how different and wonderful it all was with him. I saw her eyes change with a broad smile that spread out across her face. I remember how important it was for her to feel as if she was building this, slowly, very slowly. Building a foundation. I remember the excitement and crazy joy that followed after a trip to New Orleans and a proposal. We were bouncing up and down in the middle of her hair lounge, during business hours, like two teenagers.
Planning a wedding is a daunting task but add in the opening of a new restaurant, a new hair lounge and news of a tiny addition! I was relieved to receive a text asking if I could be ready to shoot a small backyard wedding on a Monday afternoon. Yessssss! An intimate, backyard wedding was just the ticket for Eli and Pam. I was completely overjoyed and honored to capture every moment. Every quiet detail. Every happy tear. Every farm fresh veggie. Every piece of gluten-free cake. Every smile. Every doggie in a bowtie (ok, there was only one lol). Love you both to bits!!
Many thanks to my dear friend Teresa Sweet for helping to capture the day with me!
