Joe and Michaela's wedding day dawned glorious last November and promised to be breathtaking in every way. This sweet couple's love is so inspiring not only for each other, but for their son and daughter that complete this beautiful blended family. The children had a special place in each moment from first looks to the altar. Every detail of this wedding was thoughtfully put together and reflected both class and fun, which sums up this couple well! Smiles, laughter and tears overflowed as this story of new beginnings was celebrated.
Joe's mother, Rita, was diagnosed with cancer 2 years ago and the day was bittersweet as she had limited time left with the family she loved so dearly. Her smile was a beautiful testament to her joy even while staring death in the face. As each tender moment came, I was beyond honored with the privilege of capturing these images for her family to treasure for years to come. There wasn't a dry eye in the room as she danced one last dance with her son at the reception.
Sorrow and joy, beauty and pain so often live in the same room and learning how to hold them both, trusting that God uses each one, strengthens our hope and dependance on Him.
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Graney!
In loving memory of Rita Grace Graney
