Weddings tend to represent the personalities of the bride and groom and the relationship that they share. The entire day is like a collage, uniting two very different families and synching them into absolute harmony. It brings together two distinct pasts, and blends them into one united future. It fuses two lives together ’til death do they part.’ In essence, it’s the beginning of an incredible adventure.
I don’t know how many times I needed to remind myself to keep shooting, when all I wanted to do was to keep smiling and laughing and simply witnessing the beauty of this day. Whether it was the vivacious dancing of the children; the tender affection between grandparents; the boisterous and enthusiastic celebrations of Mark’s fraternity brothers or the way that Mark would catch Stacia’s eye from across the dance floor. I had a smile plastered on my face the entire day.
Everything about this day screamed ‘Stacia & Mark.’ Serene. Genteel. Graceful. Fun. Peaceful. I have never seen a bride as composed and calm as Stacia was. You could see in the way that Mark held her, in an embrace or in his arms on the dance floor, that their lives together are going to be just as their wedding day was. Perfect.
