Tommy's mother Angie contacted me a few weeks ago looking for a photographer for her son's wedding. A photographer friend of mine had referred Angie to me, and I was more than happy to fill in for her.
Joelle and Tommy moved up their wedding date in hopes that Tommy's dad (who was terminally ill at the time) would be able to participate in the event. Sadly, Tommy's father passed away just a week before their wedding. My heart goes out to them.
With everything lined up and ready to go, Tommy and Joelle decided to go forward with the wedding any way. And what a joyous day it was. Let it be known that I could not have asked for a better family to work with. Joelle was the most laid-back bride I have ever met, and the family was just so accommodating and fun to be around. It was a dream come true.
Congratulations, Tommy and Joelle! May your new life together be full of joy, love, peace, and laughter.
Joelle's daughter Tristan was the flower girl. She's picture perfect in her gorgeous gown!
I can't say enough about how lovely the wedding was. Angie's home was the perfect setting for this small, intimate ceremony. And all the parents did a remarkable job putting this special event together. Everything was amazing! I still can't believe they threw this together in just three short weeks. Very impressive!
Tommy's brother and Joelle's sister made up the bridal party.
The pastor's prayer was one of the most memorable moments of the ceremony. It was truly special.
I found this little pond just five minutes from Tommy's mother's house. You'd never guess it backed up to a movie theatre. It seemed the perfect fit for Tommy and Joelle.
After the ceremony Tommy and Joelle let loose and enjoyed a little break. I think Joelle looks pretty darn perfect on the back of Tommy's truck.
Back at the reception the party began. I love a couple that knows how to have fun together!
By the end of the night Tristan was FINISHED with me and having her pictures taken. I let her blow off some steam hamming it up in front of the lens. I love this one! Such a great girl!
A special thanks to Sarah who assisted me.
