I have been greatly enjoying looking through this wedding months later and sighing for Spring. This beautiful wedding was photographed last May at the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library Gardens.
There are those souls you meet in life that leave a lasting ripple, Ones that cause irrevocable impressions upon our lives. Olivia and Thomas were just that for me. I had an instant connection with both of them and can simply not get over how truly alive their love was and how deep their zeal for life permeated every moment we had spent together. Their wedding was nothing short of many ripples, alive and zealous as they touched us all.
Garden roses and greenery winding and flourishing in every direction. As you can tell I was rather wild about this wedding. That DRESS. I’ve never seen such a dress. I was rather obsessed, I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who had to lift their chin from the floor when I first saw Olivia in it. Muted peach, dusty pink, purple and gold – such a lovely vintage color pallet.
It really was a day of the heart. I cannot get over the look in Olivia’s Father’s eyes as he held her hand to his lips, the tears that came during Thomas’ Mother Son dance, Olivia’s mother always looked as if she was holding the most spectacular joy inside and Olivia’s brother having that look of utmost pride. I can still remember those connections, months later, feel them on my heart like a fingerprint. Thank you, Olivia and Thomas for giving me that gift and congratulations to the both of you!
