I cannot believe how fast 2016 is coming to a close! I still have so much to share with you – but the holidays are the best time to share joy and love, right?
Gosh I’ve been dying to share this wedding with you! Symantha & Marcus met on the west coast, when Marcus was on a trip visiting mutual friends. After getting to know Symantha, and knowing that he couldn’t be on the other side of the country, he packed up his life and moved to San Francisco to live closer to her, and from then on, the two have been inseparable (even sometimes lovingly known as Marmantha). Having been able to get to know them over the past year, we can completely understand why! Symantha has an absolutely infectious smile and laugh, and Marcus knows exactly how to bring it out in her. We had so much fun documenting their wedding. Everyone was so incredibly welcoming to us, and treated us like one of their own. We are so honored that everyone allowed themselves to be completely open to emotion, allowing us to capture honest and true joy, celebrating a completely wonderful couple.
Symantha’s dress waited patiently for her at Bradley Estate.
Marcus had an awesome reaction to finding out what Symantha had gotten him as part of his gift!
Symantha’s mom lit up seeing her daughter in her wedding gown!
Symantha’s mom wasn’t the only one excited about seeing how beautiful everyone looked!
When I saw the way the sunlight fell across Symantha’s face here, I fell in love. It was such a beautiful quiet moment before seeing her groom at the aisle.
That quiet moment didn’t last too long, Symantha was bursting at the seams with excitement!
Such a hard working little flower girl!
Our ring bearer was not exactly pumped about taking a few pictures without mom ;)
Like I said, Symantha was literally exploding with excitement before her ceremony.
Before we started with any formals, Symantha & Marcus scurried away to the front of the estate to simply be together as husband and wife for the first time.
One of the things that made Symantha & Marcus fall in love with the Bradley Estate in Canton was the way the trees at their ceremony site grew separately but come together at the top.
Before we said our goodbyes, we had to take one last portrait. Thank you so much, Symantha & Marcus. We are so incredibly humbled to be able to document days like this for couples like you.
I love your compositions
Thank you Mandi! We love switching it up but keeping it clean :)
