I adore photographs for the way they tell the often missed secrets of a wedding day. The knowing glances between the bride and groom, the brief seconds as someone's eyes begin to fill with water, the exuberant laughs shared after a whisper, and the way adoration unmistakably fills one's entire face. Photography can forever record the moments that we often forget, miss, or can't see.
Scrolling through the photos of Katie and Bryan's wedding day is like watching a slow-motion movie that leaves you weepy and smiley and content. There's a photo down below of her dad looking at Katie as she looks down the aisle towards Bryan, and in the middle of a coffee shop in Charlotte, North Carolina, I bawled like a baby. There is so much love coming from every side. Love and contentment and thankfulness and joy and isn't that what it's all about?
The beginning of a covenant. The hope of Christ displayed outwardly and continually to another person. Love and contentment and thankfulness and joy.
