Leslie and Charles wrapped an arm around each other and leaned in close. The words spoken by their friend washed over them.
“We get old and we get used to each other. We think alike. We read each others minds. We know what the other wants without asking. Sometimes, we irritate each other a little bit. Maybe sometimes take each other for granted. But once in a while, like today, I meditate on it and realize how lucky I am to share my life with the greatest woman I ever met. You still fascinate and inspire me. You influence me for the better. You’re the object of my desire, the #1 earthly reason for my existence. I love you very much.”
In that instant, it felt as if everything else slipped away. Leslie and Charles were at home in their embrace. Witnessing such tender moments takes my breath away, and is one of the joys of being a wedding photographer.
Leslie and Charles created such a warm, personal, and fun celebration. Leslie grew up spending part of every summer in Rhode Island, and Charles has visited since they started dating at Syracuse University. Ice-cold Del’s with vodka and ocean views gave guests a taste of the East Coast summers these two love.
This family home holds so much history. It’s the place Leslie’s parents were married 30-something years before. It’s the place Leslie and Charles will hold in their hearts for years to come, with memories of vows, laughter and that magical feeling of dancing with your one-and-only surrounded by everyone you hold dear.
