Oh friends… where do I begin on my own little brother’s wedding?! (Okay, so he’s not so little anymore… but he’ll always be my little brother!) At first I started to think we were crazy for offering to shoot their wedding when I would also be standing up along with my other siblings next to Josh (groomsmaid for the win!)… but I am SO happy we did it! It was truly so amazing to get to be along with these two through every moment of their day… watching Martha get ready and seeing her putting on her dress (I might have totally lost it doing her bridal portraits!)… through the first look, portraits, and until the last song was played! (We had help from the ever-so-talented and wonderful Tami Paige Photography… thankfully too – so we were still able to relax and enjoy the day and be in some photos ourselves! ;)) It was beautiful to see how their day came together after so much planning, and even better to see how they were both able to let go of all the planning and expectations and just be 100% present and enjoy every minute of their day for what it was!
Josh & Martha ~ We love you two so, SO much. You are the perfect compliments to each other and I cannot imagine a better fit for either of you! You calm the other in exactly the ways the other needs, and you push each other to be the best versions of yourselves. You are both such kind and generous people… and somehow have managed to hang on to that childhood excitement for life and find fun in all those lovely little things… like holiday traditions, Disney movies, costume parties, and puzzles. 😉 Never lose that zest for life and keep on cherishing every little moment together – because the days, months and years will fly by! I know you two have a beautiful life ahead of you and we are so happy we get to be alongside you to see it all!! Thank you so much for trusting us with your most precious memories! I hope these photos make you smile now and always. XOXO ~ Christy & James
A millions congratulations, you two!!! xoxo!
