When I get the chance to photograph family, it is a place of honor.  It is a sneak peek into relationships, a front seat to all the special moments of the wedding day.  I get to see moments that not everyone else does, and happily share those incredible moments with all of you.  So, these are just a few of the highlights from Elizabeth & Chris’s wedding day.  The morning started early for Elizabeth and the girls.  They got ready at a friend’s house, cousin Jenna and friends helped with makeup and hair, and the girls opened up special gifts from Elizabeth to wear their mint green dresses.  The lock and key you will see throughout the wedding day attire and decor, is best told by Chris:  “Chris produced a small wooden box he had been holding at his side.  he opened it to show pictures of the Pont des Arts Bridge in Paris, France loaded with locks of loving  couples who had fastened their own lock to the bridge and throw the keys in the water that the lock may never be removed, symbolizing their undying love.  Along with the pictures was a lock, with the word “White” written on top.  They lovingly attached the lock to the fencing on the side of the bridge together and as they finished Chris looked at Elizabeth and said, “Now we have to throw the keys in the water.”  In the box he had the engagement ring and dropped to one knee to propose.

We were almost done with photographs with the girls.  Each bridesmaid had a few moments with Liz while we took photographs, and it made her tear up. Chris’s mom, Jenny was there to offer a kleenex and a hug.
