Amy & Andrew // Matthews, North Carolina
Amy & Andrew’s Matthews Wedding at Colonel Francis Beatty Park
Oh my goodness, this wedding.
This was the first of 6 weddings in May, and I was gearing up for most of April, ready to hit the ground running. Then I got there, here, and everything stopped.
Nothing but peace and calm. Nothing but two utterly elated people who were dying to get married, two thrilled families and a lot of history together. Amy and Andrew were completely wrapped up in the day, stealing smiles and gazes and jokes and pretty much oblivious to the world. Amy set aside the entire second half of our time together for photos, and both of them glided through that hour with the biggest smiles I've ever seen.
I got in my car afterwards and, not gonna lie (although this will surprise absolutely nobody who knows me,) I teared up a little at the realization that this is my job. To be with these people in their happiness and calm. Amy and Andrew left such an impression on me.
