My grandma used to tell me – Show me your friends and I’ll show you who you are. If I held that standard to Joslyn and Zach – who they are, completely reflects who they surround themselves with. Kind and friendly people. These are the characters that made up their bridal party and are a complete reflection of who they are.
As we entered the Air BNB the morning of the wedding, Marc and I were quickly greeted by Zach’s mom as she was assisting the girls with their wedding preparations. We talked about what a beautiful day it was and how excited she was that the day was finally here. I couldn’t have agreed more. Ever since I had first chatted at length with Joslyn and Zach at their engagement session, I knew this wedding was going to be one of my favorites of the year. Marc and I walked into the kitchen where all the bridesmaids were busy buzzing around and putting the final touches of hair and makeup. We were greeted with big smiles and hugs. Joslyn looked stunning – this girl could honestly be on the cover of Brides magazine, and her heart and personality only made everything even more sweet and endearing.
Marc headed off to capture the guys getting ready. I enjoyed capturing every moment as the bridesmaids facilitated Joslyn’s transformation into a bride as she slipped on her wedding gown, veil, and jewelry.
As Josyln and Zach said their vows, they were surrounded by their closest family and friends. This moment is one of my favorites of the day, when their guests erupted in cheer as they were announced as husband and wife.
It has been a pleasure getting to know this beautiful couple and we look forward to keeping in touch over the upcoming years. We have been so excited to share a glimpse into their day and I’m sure you’ll fall in love with this couple as much as we did. Enjoy!
A special thanks to all the vendors who made Joslyn & Zach’s day beautiful!
