when michelle and mike joined me at byrd park here in snow hill for their esession, I learned all about their amazing love story. they met in high school through a mutual friend – and although mike kept it a secret, he had developed quite the crush on michelle back then. fast forward almost a decade later, and they reconnected after such a long time apart. texts became phone calls which eventually turned into a visit when mike came down to the shore to see michelle.. and the rest, as they say, is history. as I drove to ocean city for their wedding, the rain was steadily falling. I kept looking at the radar on my phone and it was clear that their plans to have photos by the beach were not going to happen. knowing how important this was to them, I was really bummed. but when I went to mike’s room, and later on with michelle, it was clear that the weather was not going to dampen either their excitement or true joy to finally having arrived to this day together. after everyone was ready, we headed to the church for a beautiful ceremony and then… then… we arrived to the reception at peaky’s and the rain had stopped! we all ran out to the beach to take advantage of this small window of clear skies and had a great time as we got the photos that they had been hoping for. the reception was full of surprises.. from a video sent by michelle’s brother who is deployed overseas (there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!) to a very creative throw bouquet. every moment had been so thoughtfully considered by the two of them and was so welcoming as they spent this night with everyone they loved. I have had such a wonderful time working with you and getting to know you better. you are such a special couple and I wish you all of the love and happiness in the world! xoxo
