This is Olivia & George. If you missed their engagement session, go relive it here.
I ask all my clients to share stories with me. It helps me get to know them and photograph them as they truly are. Olivia shared their proposal story with me and it was stuck in my head all throughout their wedding day. So I want it in your head as you look at this blog because it is pretty perfect. :)
From Olivia: When he asked me, he referenced the quote "We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness and call it love" --- he got down on one knee and said: "will you be weird with me forever?" and it was perfect. We're just two weirdos that enjoy making each other laugh.
The sunshine during their ceremony was so dreamy!
Thank you for having me capture this perfect day! I loved every minute. You two are so sweet together. Keep doin' you!

Any advice for future brides & grooms?
Keep it simple! Invest in what's important to you and then get creative for the rest.
Most hilarious moment from your wedding day?
Waiting in our "staging area" before the ceremony with the whole wedding party - I just remember laughing the whole time. George and the groomsmen ran to the woods minutes before they were supposed to walk out to relieve themselves.
What was the best thing you did in preparation for your wedding?
Being our own DJ! We got a lot of skeptical looks when people asked who our DJ was going to be - but we had so much fun putting it together. And now we have those playlists to listen to whenever we want to reminisce and jam out.
