Here's what I love about weddings: they're versatile. As a photographer who has photographed many weddings, one piece of advice I gladly give is this:
There's not a specific way to do your wedding. This is a day set out to celebrate the union between you and your spouse. It is unique, special and traditions are not necessary and only beautiful if they mean something to you.
There is so much pressure put on couples today with ideas exploding from Pinterest and landing in your inbox for suggestions on the "best way" to do your wedding. The ones I have enjoyed the most are the simple ones. The ones that slow down and enjoy the day. The ones that have heart and meaning to the little things that matter in life. That's the key to a happy day. All the rest is wonderful but doesn't define it.
Take these two for example. They called and said they'd be doing a small wedding with family and friends in a backyard. A Jupiter backyard, that is. Locals know that can be wonderful. And it was.....but it was wonderful because their love was wonderful.
What's a wedding during Covid without some masks?
Grandkids for the win!

What a day. What beautiful moments. People are just spectacular.
