I was asked a question recently when submitting images to a magazine " What makes this wedding special? "
It's the year 2017 and same-sex couples can get married in Mississippi! That alone is something so special! Couples like Christian and Kurt have fought every day for their love. It takes a whole lot of courage and strength to live in the shoes of those who have had to hide their love or their true selves for many years.
Meeting and getting to know Kurt and Christian from the very beginning was so special. They opened their heart and home to me. They let down every wall they ever had to put up for me to photograph their true selves, their love! I can't express in words how much love these two share for one another. Seeing them together and smiling and laughing has been wonderful. Since getting to know these two I have not once seen them without a smile. They uplift one another and are always sharing laughs together. They truly are best friends. It was such an honor to photograph their wedding. At the end of the day, I am super Thankful for their kindness, their friendship and all the love they have shared and put out in the world. Christian and Kurt truly are one of a kind and the sweetest genuine couple there is.
So a Big Congratulations to Mr. & Mr. Gavin! Thank you for choosing me to document your special day and I wish you both the absolute best in life together.
Many Thanks to the other very talented Vendors who helped make their day even better!
