Michelle & Caleb | Love Story

We think it’s going to be EASY to spot Caleb and Michelle’s joy in these images!  They love the Lord, their families and their friends and that was evident in every aspect of their day. They were SURROUNDED by so many people who love them.

Some of our favorite parts were when Michelle saw her dad for the first time, watching Michelle & Caleb read their letters from one another. (There is just something special about a man that can express his feelings through words) But we all remember what Jane, from the movie 27 Dresses, described as her favorite part of weddings: “You know how the bride makes her entrance and everybody turns to look at her? That’s when I look at the groom. ‘Cause his face says it all you know? The pure love there.” A groom’s reaction when he first sees his bride is a moment unlike any other. And just like Jane our very favorite was when Michelle came down the beautiful aisle toward Caleb. His reaction was a look unlike any other.  It was pure love and anticipation for this beautiful moment when they become husband and wife.  So I guess we should apologize now for the overload of entrance pictures, but it was so special we want you to share in their joy!  I mean the look on her sister’s face at Caleb’s reaction, just wait until you see it! 🙂

Michelle and Caleb, Thank you for including us in your special day and choosing us to capture your memories. We are so happy for you and this new adventure that’s just beginning.  We can’t wait to see all that God does through your marriage!!! Happy Honeymooning!!!
