This wedding was exciting for so many reasons! First of all Annie and Patrick are just absolutely amazing!!!! I seriously don’t know how we end up with the clients we do, but I just LOVE the people we get to work with… and this is especially true for Annie and Patrick. We felt like we clicked with them right away and we were so excited to see them get married.. there first look was the absolute sweetest!!! Right away, Patrick told Annie how much he missed her that day.. and that he was so happy they did a first look and that just makes me so happy! OK.. sorry.. that was a long first point.. secondly, this wedding was like a mini reunion for us! We had TWO other M&L couples there! Her sweet sister and brother-in-law that we photographed last year AND Emily & Johnathan from 2014! and thirdly, we LOOOVEEE this venue! One of our absolute FAVORITE weddings of all time was at Amber Grove and we just couldn’t be happier to return.. (AND we get to shoot there again next year.. so that’s amazing.)
So from those three points, I hope you can tell how happy Michael and I were to arrive on site for this wedding! That joy and excitement was seen everywhere on Annie and Patrick’s wedding day, from everyone! You know how amazing a couple is when you see how excited and joyful people act around them on their wedding day. And these two have an incredible support system of some seriously wonderful people! Their bridal party was one of our favorites we’ve ever worked with, their DJ was insanely amazing, the florals were to die for, they had a GELATO truck!, and the weather was PERFECT.. everything about this day just made my heart so happy (I think I said that already, but it’s just SO true.. so, so happy)! In fact, when we were scheduled to leave we couldn’t tear ourselves away.. we ended up staying and dancing and celebrating a little longer so we could be there to send these two off. And anything that includes dancing makes Michael and I very happy.
We love y’all Annie & Patrick.. thank you so much for having us be a part of your wedding day.. it was an honor and pleasure. xo
