“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.” - Maya Angelou
A good friends little brother recently proposed to his love and they reached out to me for an engagement session that same weekend before the bride, Anya, had to go back out of town. I not so secretly LOVE engagement sessions and moved my schedule around to fit them in and I'm so glad that I did. Anya and Elliot are so full of love, joy, tenderness and happiness it's a honor to witness their new love blossoming.
The two were set up in the old fashioned way of something like a matchmaker. They have set the date to April of 2016 with many details still needing finalizing but Anya's words of advice to future brides planning a wedding, "Relax and don't think about it too much". I couldn't agree more on this, planning a wedding yes can be stressful and not the easiest at time. Don't forget to remember why you're getting married in the first place, two people fell in love and what to build a life together. The small details of the hall, flowers or seating chart are just that...the details. They aren't what make up your marriage or what breaks it if the wedding isn't the perfect vision you've had since you were a little girl.
Thank you for choosing me for this special new chapter in your lives, wishing you two endless amounts of happiness, love, passion and lots of little baby feet running around the house :)
