May 20th was a busy day for me! Directly after watching my little sister graduate from high school, I hopped in my jeep and headed to photograph Sara and Thomas Easter’s wedding alongside Heather Atkins (Kidd Photography .. she’s lovely, check her out!).
If you know me, this next sequence of events will come as no surprise to you. As I pull into the mile long gravel driveway of the Bride’s parents house to begin “before” pictures, I must’ve popped a tire on a sharp rock. As soon as I got out of the car I can hear the air quickly escaping my tire. Knowing that I still had to travel to the church and the reception location, I greeted everyone with a lovely, “Hi, everyone! I’ve popped a tire. (help me please)”. Thankfully the Father of the Bride and a family friend/videographer patched my tire and filled it with air while we started photographing. (Thanks again!!!)
All’s well that end’s well, right?! WELL, when I got to the church I did something I do at least once a month, if not more. I locked my keys in my car. There was still time before the ceremony and owning a soft top Jeep means I can unzip that back window and crawl through – crisis averted. EXCEPT.. it decided to storm before the night was over and my unzipped windows allowed for a few inches of standing water in my vehicle…nothing a good old shop vac can’t fix. This is my life, friends.
This was a fun story to tell, but the most important thing that happened while all of that was also happening, was these two GOT MARRIED! My scatterbrained-ness aside, it was a beautiful day. Man, when Thomas kissed Sara, he KISSED her. Their love was tangible. Here’s a look into their day!
