love today and always



Amy, my brother’s daughter, was married two weeks ago. The photo of Tom and Amy walking up the aisle during the wedding was too blurred to share, so I thought I’d share their entrance from the rehearsal. I gave my camera to Brianna to take pictures during the ceremony because I was doing a reading and didn’t want my shaking (nerves!) to interfere with the photos. She told me when she returned my camera that it was probably a mistake to give a camera to a film major. You’ll understand what she meant when you see a few of her photos.


Although blurred, I love this shot of Mary Ellen and Amy. This was taken during the lighting of the candles by the mothers of the bride and groom.

 Brianna was intrigued with the details of Katie’s hair.


The card has a traditional cream and white color scheme because I cannot do anything else for a wedding card. I did take Amy and Tim’s style into account for the remaining design of the card though. The sentiment is computer generated; the type and color of the font came from the wedding invitations.


I was honored that Amy and Tim asked me to be a lector for their ceremony and I was overjoyed that my reading was 1 Corinthians 13:1-8. Its words are a poignant reminder to all of the wonder of love in all types of relationships.

“Love never fails.”

PS – I just realized that I didn’t post a photograph of Tim (Can you tell I’m from the bride’s side?), so here’s one of Amy and Tim's engagement photos.

 
supplies:
paper:  French vanilla and avalanche c/s (Bazzill)
punches:  heart (Marvy Uchida)
extras:  doily (Royal Crafts); pearl flourish (Recollections); Old Script font
