Carla & Dane’s La Tourelle Turquoise and Red Wedding

2014-09-16_0012Oh these two and this wedding! This wedding is near and dear to my heart. Not just because it’s beautiful but the story behind it. These two had been together for a long time…when the health of a family member was up in the air…they realized they needed to get married…very soon! So they planned and put together a wedding in just a few months. They were on a limited budget and realized that without a ton of time to save they weren’t going to be able to afford a photographer on top of everything else. This is when the cool part of the story comes in… her friends decided to step in and pay for photography for her wedding as a wedding gift. Yes this is a true story! 12 of Carla’s friends split up the costs to hire me to photograph the wedding. When they asked me, I was SO honored to be part of this. That amount of love shown just represents the entire wedding. These two are loved by so many people and it was so evident. I’m not sure I’ve ever been to another wedding where the love was just tangible in the room. Not only are these two loved but they are incredibly in love with one another. It’s obvious they are both loyal, kind, and caring people. This was so obvious in how they interacted with each other.

I absolutely loved the eclectic style of this wedding..the reds and the turquoise. They worked together so beautifully. I loved the non-traditional attire of the groom and how these two just made this wedding their own. They decided to do a first look and honestly I think this was one of the most relaxed bride and groom portrait times I have ever had. We had so much time and it wasn’t rushed…it almost didn’t feel like a wedding day! I mean it also helps that these two are so photogenic. 2014-09-15_0004 2014-09-15_0005 2014-09-15_0006 2014-09-15_0007 2014-09-15_0008 2014-09-15_0009 2014-09-15_0010 2014-09-15_0011 2014-09-15_0012 2014-09-15_0013 2014-09-15_0014 2014-09-15_0015 2014-09-15_0016 2014-09-15_0017 2014-09-15_0018 2014-09-15_0019 2014-09-15_0020 2014-09-15_0021 2014-09-15_0022 2014-09-15_0023 2014-09-15_0024 2014-09-15_0025 2014-09-15_0026 2014-09-15_0027 2014-09-15_0028 2014-09-15_0029 2014-09-15_0030 2014-09-15_0031 2014-09-15_0032 2014-09-15_0033 2014-09-15_0034 2014-09-15_0035 2014-09-15_0036 2014-09-15_0037 2014-09-15_0038 2014-09-15_00452014-09-15_0039 2014-09-15_0040 2014-09-15_0041 2014-09-15_0042 2014-09-15_0043 2014-09-15_0044 2014-09-15_0046 2014-09-15_0047 2014-09-15_0048 2014-09-15_0049 2014-09-15_0050 2014-09-16_0001 2014-09-16_0002 2014-09-16_00032014-09-16_00042014-09-16_00102014-09-16_0005 2014-09-16_0007 2014-09-16_00062014-09-16_0009 2014-09-16_0008What a beautiful day this was with such an awesome story behind it.
