What an amazing, exhausting, romantic, and exciting day!
Long story short, I ended up helping shoot the whole wedding... not just the girls-getting-ready portion. I'm slap-dab-wore-out! But I had a great time. I almost can't believe how much fun I had pretending to be a wedding photographer. Thankfully, I wasn't entirely responsible to catch every important moment. A mutual friend of ours is a fashion photographer, so he was taking pictures as well (and he had pro equipment! That took the pressure off for me because I'm poorly equipped on my own).
I have a ton of pictures to go through, but I wanted to share one image that jumped out to me during my initial scan-through:
Jared chose not to see Anna before her walk down the aisle, but they wanted to pray together before the ceremony. So Jared positioned himself at this corner with his hand stretched out, waiting patiently for his bride to join him. Soon after, Anna snuck up and grabbed his hand, and his entire countenance changed. It was adorable. As they held hands around the corner, Jared praised God for this day, their journey here, and their future together. It was very touching! I'm tearing up a little just thinking about it. What a lovely couple.
My heart is overflowing with happiness for them.
Congratulations to the brand-new Mr. and Mrs. Snyder!
