On June 26th my baby brother, Andrew, married the love of his life, Allison. The day was beautiful–just like the couple, and it was amazing to witness and photograph two wonderful people who love the Lord join together in marriage.
Andrew: I can’t believe you are all grown up and married! It seems like just yesterday that I was “teaching” you how to flip backwards on the rings of our swing set and dressing you up in play clothes–as a little girl, of course (something you so sweetly tolerated and something dad did not! haha). I don’t know where time has gone, but I do know that it has transformed you into an amazing man of God; someone who seeks to honor Him each day. I am so proud of you and am so proud to be your sister. You may be bigger and taller, but you will always be my little brother, one whom I love dearly.
Allison: Life became even sweeter the day that you showed up in Andrew’s life, not just for him, but for all of us in our family. You have such a beautiful, wise, and loving spirit–exactly the kind of girl that I pray would come along one day for my brother. I can’t tell you how much I adore you, along with the rest of your incredible family. My arms can’t stretch out any wider to welcome you all and to tell you what a blessing you all are. I love you, my dear new sister-in-law.
I managed to go most of the wedding day without crying (only once when I showed up to start shooting and a little bit once my brother saw Allison for the first time), however working on the pictures and putting these slideshows together really did it to me! Here is just a peek (okay, a rather large peek) of their wedding day. The pictures are divided up into three separate slideshows so make sure to watch them all (and to have your volume turned up)! I hope they touch your heart and serve as a way to remember just some of the many special moments that were shared that day.
