There’s something extra special about documenting the wedding day of friends.
I’ve known Cynthia for a few years and I’ve admired her kind, friendly spirit. She’s a perfectionist at heart and creativity oozes out of her which as Gus knows can lead to some frustrating crafting evenings ;)
She has the gift of seeing the little details and putting them together in ways us mere mortals couldn’t possibly imagine. Her family is just as kind as she is. They all pitched in to help Cynthia and Gus create the wedding of their dreams. Each member donated their home, their time and their talents to the cause. Dad cut the grass, the kids pulled weeds, mom and sister made the centerpieces and everyone spoke words of affirmation onto the couple.
As Cynthia held on to her dad as he lead her to the altar, I saw, in a few seconds, a wonderful cocktail of emotions on her face. Relief, calmness and pure joy. She smiled at Gus and he smiled back and my own heart melted as I thanked God that such a lovely spirit had found her match.

And you smiled because you knew ”
