He’s the kind of guy who still sends love letters. Opens doors, surprises with flowers. The kind of guy who counts down the days until he gets to marry his best friend, soul mate, love. He’s the type of guy who was born to be married, and will spend his very last breath trying every day to be a good husband. To her. He’s kind & compassion and love at first sight.
And she knew it the first moment she laid eyes on him.
She’s the kind of girl who sends cards for no reason. Opens doors he never even knew were closed. The kind of girl who counts her blessings every day that she gets to marry her best friend, soul mate, love. She’s the type of girl who was born to be married, and will spend her very last breath reaching out her hand. To him. She’s softness & laughter and love at first sight.
And he knew it the first moment he laid eyes on her.
Married: Kim & Joel
These guys were married on a sunny day in June. And with the criz-azy weather we’ve been having this summer, I think we all know just how rare that is. But see Kim & Joel are a rare kind of couple…and they deserved a day that was nothing less.
Julia & I went to hang with the ladies, while Justin was chillin’ with Joel and the guys. The first stop was a diner for breakfast and then they headed back to the hotel to get ready, where Joel showed J the cards that he’d been giving to Kim every day leading up to the wedding. How amazing are these??
Kim, you shine from the inside out!!
Kim & Joel had the most KILLER details….more of those to come!
The light coming through this window at the back of the church was INSANE! I was in the back grabbing this….
…while Justin was in the front positioning himself to grab this shot!
Then Kim & Joel did something that just made our little photographer hearts melt like buttah. They gave us….time. They blocked out a good two and a half hours between the ceremony and cocktail hour for us all to go play. And take pictures. And rock poses. This is just the tiniest sample of everything we got that day.
Then we headed back so we could start grabbing some detail shots before all the guests got there, and boy are we glad we did!! The theme for this wedding was “Our Love Grows” and the green/organic vibe was incorporated in everything from the guest cards…
to the centerpieces and table names. Pay special attention to those table names as Joel (a graphic designer) came up with the concept for them himself. The number of things in the picture is the same number as the table. See?
Three water drops for table three. Isn’t the artwork he did amazing?? They went all the way up to like Table 15 or something and the thought that went into them just blows me away!
Kim & Joel’s first dance was off the chain!! It started out all slow and romantic, and then busted into this saucy lil’ latin number that they choreographed. I LOVED it!!
This guy on the right was burnin up the dance floor all night long. I think he had more energy than we did!!
At the end of the night we got to go back out and grab some moodier portraits of K&J.
Kim & Joel, I hope you guys had an AMAZING honeymoon and are soaking up the married life like a sponge takes to water. We wish you a heart full of well wishes for a life full of love. That just grows and grows and grows.
So much love!
