I had the honor of witnessing a miracle recently! Earlier this month, I was asked to attend and photograph my Grandmother’s wedding. Yes, you heard me correctly, my sweet, lil ol’ Grandma, went and got hitched!
This was hands down the sweetest, most meaningful wedding that I have ever attended in my entire life. Two people, whose partners have previously passed, have been given a second chance at love and have found their soul mates again. How lucky are they? And how lucky am I to have another Grandpa to add to my family!
The setting was a small church in Rochester, New York, where my Grandma had been baptized as a baby and where she was married for the first time. The physical space of the Church was far from grand and was unassuming, but the atmosphere was magical. The Pastor preached about the meaning of love and importance of finding your life partner to journey to heaven with. He taught about loving with your whole heart to make each other complete. His words described the importance of finding a partner who helps you become a better person and with whom you do the same.
Watching my grandparents through my lens, it was impossible to not feel the electricity of their love for each other. They wanted to show their children and grandchildren the importance of love and teach us about how to become better people in this world. They certainly accomplished this mission!
Check out some of my favorite images from that day. Try not to cry over the beauty of these moments… but maybe that’s just me?
