I'll never forget when I went to Nancy and Matt's engagement session and just knew how special they really were. I knew immediately that their wedding was going to be an unforgettable one. Why? Because as soon as we started talking about wedding planning, Nancy immediately said, "My family is HUGE and you will never remember any of their names. That's what my mom is for though!" And boy, was she right?! Nancy's mom came to the rescue that day for family portraits and I was overjoyed on how quickly we got through family portraits. I mean, we literally got through every. single. family. portrait. in 7 minutes. Is that a record or what?! I mean, I'm sure that could have been done for someone with only immediate family there, but this wedding? They had a good hundred family members on this list. And we did it in 7 MINUTES!! Thank you Momma Choi!!
When I came home from Nancy and Matt's wedding, I talked about their day and filled Colby in as I normally do and I got a reaction that I never do from him. He told me that it sounded like a dream wedding that I've been dying to shoot for so long. He KNEW how much fun I had at this wedding just by the way I talked about it and that EXCITED me! Colby obviously isn't my second shooter and isn't into photography like I am, so this was a big deal that he was excited to see the images from this day just as much as I was.
Nancy and Matt are probably the sweetest couple I've met to this day. Yes, I know I say this probably every time I write a blog post, but I'm serious about this one. The way these two treat each other is unforgettable. They look at each other with the most devoted and adoring gaze. The respect they have for each other is remarkable and it just made me love them even more.
Throughout the day and into the night, I couldn't keep my eyes off of them and their love - this is seriously why I do what I do. For couples like Nancy and Matt who are destined to be together and get to celebrate their love for the rest of their lives. Plus, can you NOT love a wedding with a CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN?! I mean, come on y'all! That was pretty amazing. But seriously, Nancy and Matt, I am so happy for the two of you and I hope you are having the best honeymoon ever in Dubai!! I can't wait for you to see all of your images, but until then, here are my favorites from the day!!
