Sarah & Brad's Fowler House August wedding was definitely one for the books! Not only was this wedding dated for one of the hottest Saturdays of the year, but it was also Sarah and Brad's 6 year anniversary from when they officially began dating! I absolutely loved that tiny detail in their chosen wedding date!
It all began with the bridal party walking down the aisle to The Lord Of The Rings soundtrack. (My husband was filled with JOY when I told him about it!) Apparently Brad is a HUGE fan, and Sarah was happy to let him have his moment with one of the most epic soundtracks of all time.
As Sarah walked down the aisle with both her parents by her side, Brad couldn't help but smile at her. Their best man stood in front to officiate, and their ceremony started. It was simply beautiful, and as they said their vows to each other I caught some tears from family members in the front row. This moment had been a long time coming, and everyone was overjoyed.
After their first kiss as husband and wife, I couldn't capture enough smiles as Sarah and Brad came back down the aisle. They were elated. They were married!
At the reception later that evening, one of their maids of honor stood to give her speech. Best friend of the bride since grade school, she saved a letter that Sarah had given to her years prior. As she read it, the crowd settled down into silence. It was one of the most sincere and sweet representations of friendship that I have seen between a bride and her MOH. The letter rang of true friendship and of commitment to each other, and now support for their spouses. It was beautiful and moving.
Sarah and Brad, it was so wonderful to be a small part of your day! You both are such beautiful people, inside and out. It was a pleasure to capture your wedding day. I hope and pray you'll be able to look back on these photos with joy and sentiment for years to come!
