I have known Corrie and Alisa for just over a year now, but over that year we have met for coffee, watched sunset go down at their engagement session, and spent over 10 hours together on one of the most special days of their lives.
I knew that this wedding was going to be an extremely special day for all those involved, and on the day of I felt a deep ripple of emotion as Corrie and Alisa said “I do”. Tears of happiness ran down my face as they walked down the aisle, hand-in-hand, wives to one-another officially.
When I first met Corrie and Alisa, it came up in conversation that they were not finding many same-sex weddings online. This had not left my mind since that conversation and I was bound to do something about that. I asked Corrie & Alisa if they would mind writing something for me to include in this post about how special and important this day was for the two of them, especially being a same-sex couple…
“Making a formal and lifelong commitment to love and support one another was always a priority for Alisa and I. The process of planning our wedding and shaping it to reflect our values and personalities only helped reinforce our decision. The fact that we are a same sex couple was not a stumbling block, it only opened up a world of possibilities and special moments. On our wedding day Alisa and I entered into a covenant with one another in front of our friends and family, the very people who brought us together and will help keep us together. When I look at these photos I see the joy in everyone’s faces, a joy I am happy to share so that it inspires others.”
I have so much love, respect and happiness for these two fabulous women. It is friends (clients) like this, who trust and put faith in my art that make me love what I do, and thrive as an artist on the day of a wedding.
