I love standing at the back of a wedding ceremony. I love standing among a group of people selected to celebrate such an incredible time in a couple's life, and I love the energy that fills the room (or in this case the garden)! I also absolutely love it when a couple does something to make their wedding completely their own. That's definitely Ryan and Nicole. Their's was easily my favorite wedding ceremony of the year - simply because of how much they made it their own. First - they had their reception BEFORE the ceremony! How fun is that - they got to spend a few hours just celebrating with their family and friends. Then, just as the sun started to approach the horizon, they gathered the people most important to them in a corner of the garden. There - they were married.
Here are a few of my favorite images from their day. To view their complete wedding gallery, click here.
