Emily and Tyler
On Emily and Tyler's wedding day, the clouds were heavy and dark. The sky threatened to dampen the whole day. However, that was not to be. As we snapped a few photos of the girls getting ready at a charming historical Air Bnb, the rain lessened to a drizzle. I might have said this before, but I love when brides opt to get ready at an Air BnB. They really offer such an intimate atmosphere for the getting ready phase of the day. When we all made our way to the Rickhouse, the sun began to peak out. It was just in time for Tyler and Emily's first look and portraits.
Their first look was so tender. They joked in their engagement session that they were not the romantic/ PDA type, but their affection and admiration when they saw each other was lacking no romance. We hopped outside to grab some photos of the two of them. The light was absolutely stunning. The dark clouds parted and opened up to warm sunshine which contrasted starkly against the stoney-colored sky.
While we didn't see a rainbow in the sky, the symbol of it was infused into their whole day. A few months before the wedding, Emily's close friend and bridesmaid lost her battle with cancer. Desiring to honor her, the bridal party all wore rainbow colored socks and shoes. The bridesmaids also had rainbow stickers on their bouquets. This salute to their friend's life was beautiful and perfect, and even the weather paid tribute. The light of the day was emphasized by the receding darkness, and Emily and Tyler's joy, although mingled with grief, shined bright.
This day was overflowing with laughter, joy, and light. We danced and ate and danced some more. It was a privilege to capture this day.
