A Fairytale Romance
You know those movie montages where a couple looks back on their entire relationship up to this point? I have those but in fast forward. I look through my lens pointed at the groom waiting for his bride just as she is about to step off to meet her man at the end of the aisle, and see what their future is about to become. With Shannon and David I saw more than ever before. Shannon and David’s wedding day was more than two people starting a new chapter, it was a whole family coming together and finally falling into place. When David, Shannon, Jordan, Abby, Riley, and Austin added their own piece to the unity puzzle (seriously, how cool!) they confirmed their role in the Rains Family Future. I knew that from this day forward, they together will create a highlight reel so spectacular, so fun, so true, when they look back at their life, wherever they may be at that moment, they wouldn’t see their wedding day as best day ever. They would remember it fondly with the best yet to come.
The Best is Yet to Come
Shannon and David are huge Disney fans; you can tell just in the twinkle in Shannon’s eyes every time she smiles. So, when David proposed to her in front of Cinderella’s Castle one year before they’d be walking down the aisle, it was nothing short of a fairytale engagement. Then on the wedding day, Shannon received the full princess treatment. Only better than little creatures that live in the forest, she was surrounded by the ones she loved, helping her dress, strapping her shoes, carrying her veil, all leading her to true love’s kiss. The flower girl walked down the aisle, the music changed to 1000 Years played by the Piano Guys, family and friends stood, and David’s heart swelled with anticipation. This was the moment he had waited his whole life for. He stared at the empty archway waiting for his heart’s desire to appear. I focused my camera on the end of the aisle as Shannon gripped her bouquet in one hand and her father’s arm in the other and took her first step towards her soon to be husband. David and Shannon found their happily ever after in each other. And that happily ever after begins now.
From Now until Forever.
Shannon & David, your love is honest and true. Your joy and kindness radiates from the both you. Shannon, you have the sweetest smile and it always brightens my day. Every day life may not always be a fairytale. But the love and respect that the two of you hold for one another sure helps the days to be just a little sweeter. I wish you both all the love and happiness your hearts can contain. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your Happily Ever After.
Hugs & Lots of Love, Brandy
