Romantic Storytelling, Fine Art Wedding Photographer

I think that when you meet at a wedding and start hanging out together, it’s bound to make a full circle to the day that you get married as well. Joe & Hayley were first introduced to each other at one of their friends’ wedding.  Little did Damen & Jeff know that their own love story would lead two others into a love story that was completely their own.

Joe was beyond excited to see his bride.  His voice racing through the memories as he told us that when he first saw her, he told himself that she was the woman he was going to marry one day.  His smile widened as he continued on about how amazing she is and that he was ready to finally call her his wife.

Hayley and her bridesmaids were busy getting ready but Hayley found a moment to sit down and start writing a letter.  A letter that she would have him read just moments before they saw each other.  Only hours away from becoming husband and wife.  As Joe stood in front of the barn awaiting his bride, he read the letter and smiled a lot.  The barn door opened and Hayley walked towards him.  As he turned around, his heart did a flip.  There she was, the woman he knew he was going to marry, standing right beside him looking the most beautiful she’s ever looked.  They embraced one another and held each other close.  He spun her around so that she could show him her full ensemble.  She giggled and looked down.  Blushing at the sound of his voice complimenting her over and over again.

The ceremony begin in late afternoon.  They shared vows they had written to one another before celebrating their unity with wine blending.  Lots of smiles came in between the entire ceremony as they promised their love for one another before sharing their first kiss as husband and wife.

A lot of excitement filled the Stonehill Barn as they entered into the reception.  Red roses, baby’s breath and hints of gold decorated the tables.  Their naked cake branded with their initials and cupcakes of many flavors surrounded the beautiful cake.  They gently cut into the cake before Joe surprised her with a little playfulness as he fed her the cake.   Frosted kisses followed and then toasts and dancing began.   Hayley let Joe be her support as her body rested on him–holding one another as closely as they could.


Joe & Hayley,

Your wedding day could not have been any more love filled than it was.  Your smiles, laughter and dedication to one another made it easy for everyone there to feel the love that you share.  I wish you both a lifetime of happiness as you continue your happily, ever after.  I hope you love this little sneak peek into your day!
