The thing that stuck out to me the most from their engagement session last summer was their chemistry. It’s not in-your-face and steamy like Hollywood would like to portray. It’s something so much deeper and richer. It’s quiet. It’s gentle. It’s intimate. It’s peaceful and comfortable. It’s real. And that, this is the most beautiful kind of love to photograph. I was so excited to photograph them again because working with a couple like Bethany and Zach is such a pleasure.
Their Bella Sala wedding was beautiful and fun, a day filled with so much joy. We started the day at the Newman Student Center where their ceremony was held. After the ceremony, we went to Kent Park for photos and then to Bella Sala where everyone celebrated for the rest of the evening.
Bethany & Zach, I hope you know how much I truly mean this: I loved being with you on your wedding day. You are an amazing couple and I am so excited to see how much you continue to grow together through the years!
Bethany’s stunning bouquet (those colors!) had pieces of jewelry from her grandmothers in it and was wrapped around the stems with lace from her mother’s wedding dress.
Ahh!! Bethany, you are so gorgeous!! Your smile radiates pure joy.
One of my favorite parts of the day is in the evening when I get to sneak the couple out for a few minutes for some photos. The light is so golden and the photos are usually my favorite because you can sense the happiness and contentment in a couple. They are married, they have already been celebrating, and now they get a chance to breathe and soak it in before returning to the party.
