May 22, 2013

We’ve mentioned before that here at Gillette Portrait Arts we not only are photographers but novice meteorologists.  Since Mother Nature has been giving us some showers the past few weeks, I’ve checked the weather constantly and always cross my fingers for any of our couples with an outdoor wedding.  So when I saw grey skies the morning of Laura + Ben’s beach wedding, my heart sank a little for them.  However, after I hung up the phone with Ben and heard the pure joy in his voice, I knew the weather was the last thing on everyones’ mind that day.  All worries were cast aside the minute I walked into their gorgeous beach house.  I was instantly greeted with smiles and everyone was just so happy that this day had finally arrived.  Laura + Ben had been dating for a long time and everyone was waiting for this moment.  They were surrounded by their close family and Laura’s dad not only walked her down the isle but conducted the ceremony!  Her nephew Parker was the ring bearer and after the ceremony everyone feasted on crabs + cake!  The rain held off just long enough- it started to sprinkle during portraits of the two of them but I don’t think these lovebirds even noticed. :)  The were so wrapped up in each other and their love shone throughout the whole day.  I am so happy for you both- thanks for inviting me along to share this special day with you!
