I’ve known about Molly and Erik before I ever met them. It’s strange how the loss of a dear friend has brought into my life this cherished and wonderful couple — a couple that I had the privilege of capturing their love as we traipsed around the Nunica farm where Erik grew up with their somewhat famous dog, Wesley, in tow. (No, really, he’s the braces-wearing dog whose photo went viral.) I’m grateful this profession lets me roam on farms, mingle with pets, climb trees and be reminded of the power of love.
It rained and it rained and it rained. And it rained some more. After visiting every thrift store in the area, we found enough umbrellas to keep the bridal party dry (I was keeping my fingers crossed that they would be up for the challenge!) Oh, and they were…the cold rain didn’t stop Joe and Stephanie from enjoying their fall wedding day to the fullest. Steph didn’t mind that her hair got a little wet (I attribute that to the fact that she’s a farm girl) and no one minded traipsing though fields of weeds. I also have to give a HUGE shout out to my talented husband, Jon, who assisted me with this wedding. He was my second photographer, umbrella holder, equipment carrier and nerve calmer. Joe and Steph, may you always find laughter during the storm.
