Get ready for simply the most unique wedding I have ever shot.
Here’s what you need to know: They met working for Lover’s Lane Church in Dallas, TX and got married less than 6 months later. (Awesome.) They are both brilliantly sarcastic, witty, and amazing writers. If I had a copy of their vows, I’d post it. Hilarious and sweet simultaneously. Please try to read everything I posted and know that it was a tiny sampling. They must have written over a million words for this thing. The reception was a museum of their lives leading up to this point. Each table with a theme of some part that defines them. A childhood table, theatre table, san diego table, chik-fil-a table…etc. They really really love Chick-fil-A. They also really love Jesus and can somehow be superbly sarcastic one second and deeply spiritual the next. Later, history books will try to define them and how they do this effortlessly.
What’s with the blindfold, you ask? They did not want to see eachother beforehand but they did want to take pictures. So you will see a series of blindfolded photos, photos where there is something in between them, and some where he is just blatantly closing his eyes. It was such a creative challenge, and sometimes I would just freak out. “Ah!!! I’m so nervous you are going to open your eyes right now!!!!!Ahhhh!!”
My favorite part is the journal Raegan gave Scott. You need to know Raegan. I could write an entire post about how great she is. Her heart is SO beautiful, Raegan has been patiently single for a long time. Instead of being a desperate single, discouraged, cat lady, she has been keeping a journal to her future husband for over 8 years. Letters & prayers. She has been dedicated to Scott before she ever knew his name or what he looked like. Mind blown? Then she gave the journal to him on their wedding day and he had no knowledge of it beforehand. BOOM. That’s Raegan.
