Alexander and Brooklynn were absolutely amazing. I don’t know that I know anyone that would have been able to handle some of the ups and downs of their wedding day as well as Alexander and Brooklynn handled their day.
Due to illness and weather, important people were not able to make it. The ceremony started 20 minutes late and the weather was super nasty. But when I asked Brooklynn, “are you nervous at all?” Her response was, “No, I am so EXCITED! I am not nervous at all, I am just so excited!” And at that moment I knew Brooklynn and Alexander were made for each other. It is not usually a common response from anyone on a wedding day. They both handled the ups and downs of their day with such grace and dignity. I have never met two people so patient, kind, gentle and so unbelievably thoughtful. These two gravitate towards each other and have this connection that you can see even when they are in different ends of the room.
Marriage can be tough, especially when you do not have a support system to turn to when you have questions. What I saw, was a rock-solid support system that Brooklynn and Alexander can turn to in need. Their family is so supportive, loving, gentle and kind. It’s no wonder Alexander and Brooklynn are the same way. Editing these photos was really hard, the emotion and love that surrounds this family is expressed in every photo of them.
Alexander looks at Brooklynn like she’s the only one in the room, he truly sees her for who she is, his partner, his friend, his companion and most of all the love of his life.
I don’t even know where, to begin with, this wedding party. They were rock stars, Brooklynn and Alexander had friends and family step up to be part of the wedding party last minute, travel over an hour to get their outfits, and to stand with them on one of the most important days of their lives. It was such an honor to be a part of such an amazingly graceful group of friends and family.
I really have to give a shoutout to the parents of Brooklynn and Alexander, the love that you showered these two with was absolutely beautiful! I am so blessed to have met such awesome parents and family, you guys are so amazing!
One last note!
During the toasting Brooklynn’s dad made a comment, “When Brooklynn was little her mom told me that they were at the mall and some kids were making fun of a little girl who had a birthmark on her face. Brooklynn walked over to the little girl and told her, ‘I think you’re beautiful!'”
And these are the type of people I photographed. Absolutely the most thoughtful, wonderful family. Brooklynn when my daughter grows up, I hope she’s just like you!
Much love to the newlyweds, I wish you all of the love and joy this world has to offer!
