There were so many moments throughout Lucas and Heather's wedding day that I thought to myself, “This is why I love my job.” Between the bride and groom's first touch, Mother and the Groom, my mascara was smeared and a mess. This entire day was full of sentimental moments that were inspiring for me as a parent of young adults. I can only hope that one day when it’s our daughter's turn to get married that we will have the privilege of praying with her, crying with her, laughing with her and cheering her on like Heather's parents did for her on Saturday. These are dear friends of mine and it was such a joy to capture this monumental day in their journey.
Heather and Lucas' joy and love for the Lord and for each other radiated throughout every single part of their day. You’ll be able to see what I’m talking about as you scroll through these images! There was this amazing balance of tears and laughter that hung in the atmosphere of the day from beginning to end. It started with Mom and Sister helping Heather get into her wedding dress. Then it continued when dad saw her for the first time. Then the tears flowed again when Lucas and Heather read their letters to one another during their first touch… daughter, Arrabelle, watching in awe. These type of emotions flowed throughout the entire day and it was so evident that the Lord was there. The gift of marriage, the commitment to sacrificial love through highs and lows, the beginning of a new family…. it’s just all so beautiful and it felt like the most perfect way to start my 2021 wedding season.
Lucas and Heather, I hope marriage is just amazing. We’re praying for the most beautiful first year of marriage for you both!
