Well, if you were there you already know, but if you weren’t, let me just tell you. Caroline and Ryan’s wedding was impossibly, ridiculously, exceptionally beautiful. Everything was planned down to the very last detail with such care and consideration for family legacy, love, and most of all, the Lord. Their families have been hard at work for the entirety of their engagement, and the result was an absolute blast of a party that I’m just itching to share with you!
But, until then, I’m going to bring you an impossibly, ridiculously, exceptionally beautiful bride, who is not only dearly loved by her new husband, but by so many of those who know her. Caroline is one of those rare jewels who approaches life unselfishly and with side-splitting humor (seriously, we’re in stitches every time we’re together), and her refreshing take on life has been such a blessing to me since I moved back to Raleigh a year and a half ago. One of my first memories of our friendship was riding through the rural backwoods of Chatham County trying to find a rural enough location for her engagement pictures, and by the end of our big adventure, we were both crying from laughter at nothing in particular. That’s when I think we knew our friendship would be forever, and to my absolute delight, her family is just as wonderful and has become an extension of my own. I just adore them!
Caroline, I love you. I loved your wedding, I loved how you took in the quiet moments and let yourself feel the whole day. You are a treasure in my life, and these bridal portraits are some I know I’ll cherish for a very long time. The Lord has blessed you with a strong new marriage, and He has blessed me with a lifetime friendship that I know will only make these pictures sweeter as the years go by. I’m rooting for you.
