all weddings are emotional
all kinds of emotions
joy, sadness, worry, hope, laughter, and tears
all weddings have an order
beginning and end
walking and dancing
all weddings carry beauty
necklace clasps, chocolate drizzle, lace,
color, baby’s breath, sparkling eyes
all weddings are the same . . . except . . .
Meet Mark and Rachel.
Their wedding was like every other wedding.
There were emotions and order and beauty.
Their wedding was like every other wedding . . . except . . . it wasn’t.
This wedding was special.
This wedding was incredibly unique.
This wedding was about a deep love that had been handed down from generation to generation.
This wedding was about a love that had been protected by their parents, and their grandparents, and their great-grandparents.
Generations of love and marriage were represented at this wedding.
Generations of emotions and order and beauty were present.
This wasn’t just any father walking his daughter down the aisle, but this was Rachels daddy – full of pride. . .
This wasn’t just any mother, either. This was a mother who dedicated her days to seeing her children succeed.
This mother and father coupled with Mark’s mom and dad represented family. They represented marriage – good, good marriage.
Not at this wedding, though.
Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE LOVE LOVE so many of their images, but their is one image of Rachel’s little sister watching as her sister spends a quiet moment in prayer with her new husband . . . I just get sucked in – sucked into wondering what this “little” sister is thinking about this moment in her family’s life. My favorite . . . .oh man! This one – of Rachels parents, with their parents in the background . . . it’s as if their joy has been made complete.
We had so so much fun taking pictures. . . . to see a slideshow of many more of their special wedding day moments, click here.

Thank you so much for letting me be a part – a part of your generational love story.
