When these two cuties told me they were engaged in the Rocky Mountains, I knew this was going to be a good match.
Janelle wanted an enchanted forest theme for the wedding and let me tell you, IT WAS ENCHANTING. I was super in love with the details they chose, this including John’s green suit and all of the guests dressed in the green of the theme.
The energy of the day was just amazing, even with a few set backs. I absolutely loved Janelle’s carefree attitude and John’s quietness.. together they are a very relaxed couple. John ended up forgetting his shirt at home and then after traveling back, realized he left his shoes. Without mentioning the reason why things were running behind, Janelle’s coordinator and family friend called all of us whom were in the women’s dressing room into a prayer circle. Holding hands with this beautiful family, like I was one of their own.. I cannot express enough, how much this filled my heart.
John was quite calm and collected even though he needed to figure out a quick solution, John’s good friend came to the rescue with swapping shoes.
Only running a few minutes behind, Janelle was walked down the aisle by both her mother and father. After a beautiful and super quick ceremony and we raced off to the near by nature park for portraits.
Janelle + John were just stunning, so stunning in fact that a nearby observer was inspired to draw a portrait of them as we were taking photos. This sweet young women ran over to Janelle and apologized for interrupting but wanted to give them this portrait she drew. This act of love was seriously such a precious moment. My heart was seriously bursting.
Once we finished up getting all “woodsy”, we headed back to Laurel Manor.
The emotions were running high as we returned , as they normally are during a wedding day, Janelle and John were ready to get this party started.
