Sneak peek... it’s official!!! team ra is in the house as hubby and wifie after their crazy amazing wedding this last weekend at the gorgeous white house event and banquet center! so let’s just say that i seriously adore these cuties and i know without a doubt that i will be friends with them for a very very long time... i can’t tell you what it meant to me to hear my girl su “maria” thank me during her reception speech to her guests letting me know that i was not only her “photographer”... but her friend!! let’s just say i may have “ugly cried” just a little... these fabulous souls are some the sweetest, most genuine, fun loving humans i know and i cannot wait to watch them go through life together and start their new journey as husband and wife!! i’m hoping you arrived safe and are having a killer time in thailand right now and i cannot wait to see some pics soon!!! love you both so much xoxo
Just got done with these stunner’s engagement gallery and i can’t tell you how much i adored seeing every gorgeous smile on their faces... it is just sooo obvious from every image how truly madly in love these gorgeous girls are! and their love inspired a beautiful conversation between myself and my little prince cash as i was editing... my little munchkin was laying next to me as i edited in bed this evening... per the norm... and as i was working on an image where randi and amber were kissing he asked me “mama, why are those two mommies kissing?” i’ll be honest... i was super caught off guard, as he’s only four and i didn’t think i would be having this conversation with him yet... but i know how my family and i think and what we believe... so it was time for him to know too if he was asking... “they’re kissing honey because they are in love and they’re getting married” i told him. “but mommy, two mommies can’t get married... only mommy and daddies can get married” he said looking confused... “well honey that’s not true... when you marry someone it’s because you love their heart and their soul ... so mommies can marry other mommies... and daddies can marry other daddies, and mommy’s can marry daddies too... love doesn’t care if you’re a boy or a girl... so when you fall in love with someone you are falling in love with them for the beautiful heart that god put inside of them... so people get married when they fall in love with another heart honey... not because they are a boy or a girl”... he sat there for a moment and then and replied “ that’s so sweet mommy... i’m happy that mommies can marry mommies and daddies can marry daddies... i’m happy that those mommies are getting married because they look like they have really pretty hearts...” i died... i won’t lie... i shed a few tears... my little boy’s heart is so pure and full of love... as parents we have such a huge impact on the type of humans we raise and our actions, or lack there of, also play such a significant role in the way they think, believe, behave, and ultimately treat others... i don’t expect everyone to share my same beliefs...but...i do hope for our children’s sakes that we teach them to love
And it’s official!!!! ben and sac-nicte said i do this last weekend in one of the most emotional and touching weddings i’ve ever had the honor of photographing!!’ seriously y’all... both my 2nd shooter jen and i cried at like every part of their freaking amazing day... from watching sac-nicte’s gorgeous mama shedding tears as she helped her slip into her gown, to watching ben burst into tears during the first look when he saw his stunning bride to be, to watching ben and his beautiful mama on the dance floor, as they shared the sweetest mother/son dance... no joke - this couple, their families, and all of their amazing friends, are just the kindesty, warmest and loving crew ever and i’m so beyond honored that i was there to capture every last amazing moment of these fabulous humans celebrating their new life together!!! thank you thank you thank you for letting me share this with y’all!! love you guys xxoo
