A week ago I got a VERY exciting phone call. Ruth was wondering if I would photograph her and Allen getting married. I didn't hesitate for a second. Of COURSE I wanted to capture this amazing day for them!
They had decided to have a small, intimate, courthouse wedding with 2 of their close friends as witnesses. We all met at the courthouse on the afternoon of May 3rd. Ruth & Allen had corsages to wear and Don & Claire helped them put them on.
We entered the courtroom and everyone was so excited. The Judge said she loves doing weddings and felt honored to be part of their day.
Allen and Ruth exchanged their vows. They were simple & traditional and brought a few tears to my eyes.
The judge pronounced them HUSBAND AND WIFE and told Allen he could now kiss his bride. He lifted her hands to her lips and we all burst out laughing.
After they sealed their vows with a kiss Don rushed over to Claire and laid one on her! Love all around!!!
Mr. & Mrs. Bruce!!!!
Papers were signed, copied & sealed. Now it is OFFICIAL!
We took a picture with the judge and then headed out to enjoy the beautiful day.
As SOON as we got back to the car the texts started flying! They couldn't WAIT to share their happy news with their families.
We drove to Wright Park in Tacoma and took some pictures of the married couple. Here are a few of my favorites...
These two have a LOT of fun together! Always laughing. Always teasing. I envision a whole lot of joy in the coming years.
The details were simple and sweet.
I snuck into a photo with the happy couple before I headed home.
Thank you SO MUCH for letting me be part of this amazing day. I feel VERY lucky to have been able to capture these special memories. I hope everyone can enjoy a glimpse into your day and feel like they were ALL there!
I wish you all the happiness and joy that comes from sharing a Godly life together. I'm so thankful you found each other.
