Wedding, take 2 :)

In July, months before their normal wedding date of September 12th, Amy contacted me about a sensitive subject. Her grandmother, who had lived with her family since she was a baby, and helped raise her, was very ill. They didn't think she had much time left and wanted to have a small ceremony so she could see Amy get married, Amy really wanted to be able to share that experience with her.

Amy and Shane's "secret wedding" was beautiful! It was a very private event, but held so much emotion and meaning.

From 10x10 book



Amy's grandmother passed away a few weeks later, but her presence was very much felt yesterday at Shane and Amy's 2nd wedding:)

This wedding party was a blast! They were so fun and had great energy, I didn't even have to tell the boys to behave. The groom told the guys to do whatever I said and they did, they were awesome!!

I asked the group to jump, and they said,"how high"??

Our family has been so blessed by your amazing talent! These pictures are truly precious to us! The best part is how fortunate we were to have our Grandmother help raise us, and how you have obviously captured that feeling in pictures for us to treasure forever and share with younger generations! Moments froze in time! THANK YOU Christel
