When you are surrounded by a crowd of your closest friends and family, the ones that are there to cheer you on, it is the best feeling. Emily and Austin are a more private couple, yet they wanted to proclaim and share their love with the people that matter most to them. When we were about halfway through the afternoon on their wedding day, surrounded by all the grandeur of the Tea Room, Emily said to me, “You know, I don’t need to get in front of everyone and share how I feel about Austin with everyone watching…he already knows. But we are doing this because it’s important and meaningful.” They kept their vows to a minimum, and their ceremony was brief, but the joy and care that they have for each other is great. All throughout their wedding day, I was grateful that Emily and Austin had exactly the kind of day they had hoped for: meaningful, stress-free, joyous, and personal.
Congratulations to Austin and Emily! We had an amazing day with you and your family. Enjoy some of our favorites from their day!
