From the first time I met Gardner and Angela I absolutely loved them! I don’t know why I seem to attract the “laid back” couples, but oh my lord were these guys fun to photograph!
Gardner and Angela had one of the most beautiful ceremonies I’ve ever seen. It wasn’t the location or the decor that made it amazing, it was the weaving of their faiths and the regard they have for their fellow man. Angela is Jewish and Gardner is Baptist… the wedding was complete with a Ketubah, rabbi, baptist minister and of course no Jewish wedding day would be complete without… the Hora! The two instant best friends said their vows, exchanged rings, had an irish blessing read, signed their Ketubah, kissed, and smashed the glass. It was the perfect wedding ceremony full of love, with an overarching theme of acceptance and warmth. I will never, ever forget this day.
Huge thanks to Mark Santo for shooting this with me!
I was so honored when Charlotte Wedding picked their wedding to feature! You can see it on news stands now!
