Marc & Brittany | Alamitos Bay Yacht Club Wedding

“Settle down with me

And I’ll be your safety

You’ll be my lady

I’ll hold you in my arms

And the feelings I forget

I’m in love now”

Jon & Val | Lake Arrowhead Resort Wedding

One of my favorite aspects of a wedding is the ceremony. I love that moment when the groom sees his bride walk down the aisle. I love when the father of the bride takes his daughters hand and gives it to the groom. It’s a moment that I’m sure each dad wishes would last forever. I love seeing mothers wipe away tears as their children say “I do”. Jon and Val’s wedding was unique because they chose to make it about their love. I often wonder if couples ever take the time to make their wedding well about them. I wonder if they take a second to truly look at one another; to take in each moment as if no one was around. There will always be moments at a wedding where friends and family celebrate the bride and grooms love, but what about the bride and groom taking a moment just for themselves? Jon and Val chose to whisper their vows to one another. It was just the two of them, God and the Pastor that heard the promises spoken. It was a moment that I nor anyone witnessing their love will forget. A moment that they took for themselves to celebrate their love and their devotion, which is kind of telling of life and love. There will be times in life where it’s just the two of you. Times where you must remember what you promised not to the world, but solely to one another.
