From the very get go, I was completely taken in by Stefan & Colette, and judging by the utter love and unbridled joy that surrounded them on their wedding day, this is every good hearts reaction to people like them. The wedding photographer in me wants to spend hours waxing lyrical about the styling and theme (Autumn, pure and simple!) and the sheer amount of effort that went into making this day the visual feast it was. However, despite my glee with the aesthetics I can’t get myself to move past the people themselves. Nothing was more beautiful than this love.
“The thunder before the lightning, and the breath before the phrase, have you ever felt this way?” – Lyrics by Pink.
Watching them together though, isn’t like the thunder and the lighting. It isn’t brief, and loud and vaguely terrifying. Their love reminds me more of the ocean. That stability. The deep, calm, self assured power it holds. The strength. Enough to pull the tides and emotions of others. And THAT ladies and gentlemen, is what we witnessed on this beautiful day in May. All the pretty you’re about to see is simply the cherry on the icing that is the best kind of cake! Stef and Colette, you guys have been one of the loveliest gifts this wedding season has offered me, and I’m so happy to be sharing your blog post today. All my love, Claire.
