Intimate Wedding at Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill

Joy,  generosity and intimacy were all brought to the table at Courtney and Meghan's wedding. I think theirs was the smallest wedding I've shot yet, but I love how unique and intimate small weddings can be. Everyone came together to make the day perfect. Meghan's dad was there in spirit, his photo hidden in her bouquet of flowers that she carried with her as she walked down the aisle and danced in Courtney's arms. Danielle, Meghan's identical twin, was constantly serving and glowing in happiness for her sister. (They look exactly alike -- even Courtney mistook Danielle for Meghan when they first started dating.) 

Courtney and Meghan are both some of the selfless people I know; they are constantly thinking of others and even more so on their wedding day. They made sure my second shooter and I had plenty to eat (he ate my steak though. thanks Ben) and sent us both home with succulents and flowers. Not only do they care for others, but they share an even deeper love for each other and for the Lord. 

Meghan and Courtney, I wish you two all the best and was honored to be your photographer.
