britney & kevin
where to even start.
is it weird to say i had love at first email with kev and brit? because i did.
they are wonderful, kind, generous humans.
toasting and dancing and laughing under moonlight. taking those cool sharp breaths only mountain air can gift us. i remember this moment where the wind had finally died off and the heaters were going and everyone was warming up and “you shook me all night long” came on there in the valley of the mountains. and there was this moment where everything felt so full and glowy and i just watched it all happening and laughed to myself because that electric sort of happiness was just spilling over in and on to everything.
watching silently as brit and kev wept (and laughed) during their first communion as husband and wife
and knowing in all weight what that meant.
this is why i have moved into shooting smaller, intimate weddings. there wasn’t a moment of the day that wasn’t about these two people (so insanely in love) and the vows they would speak. it was relational. and the only people there were the ones who will still be on their team 30 years from now. what a privilege to see these things.
i just couldn’t believe i was there. bearing witness.
overhearing the tenderness of their quiet just married whispers.
the wind in her hair. the sun on his face.
mammoth mountain and the promise made beneath it.
