“I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.” ~ Paulo Coelho
When I came across this quote, it made me think about Michelle and Tim and their journey. These two have been searching to find each other for a long time. I’m so thankful the universe conspired and allowed them to meet! What a beautiful life they will have together.
The much anticipated day has arrived and I couldn’t be more excited for Michelle and Tim!
When I arrived at the gorgeous home of Tim and Michelle’s dear friend Patty on Sunset Lake, I was blown away by how her home was perfectly designed to host a wedding. Kristin Anderson, Michelle’s Event Planner thought of every detail to make this wedding day magical. Total perfection!
I found Michelle getting her hair and makeup done by her good friend and incredibly talented hair and makeup artist Emma Carter. Michelle looked absolutely STUNNING and was excited for the day ahead.
One of my favorite moments of a wedding day is the First Look. I positioned Tim so he couldn’t see Michelle until she was ready for him to have his “first look”. As I watched Michelle walk towards him I had chills all over. Michelle looked absolutely radiant in her gorgeous wedding dress and I was so incredibly happy for my friend! When she told Tim he could turn around… it was an incredible moment when they locked eyes. Tim’s warm smile and the look on his face as he saw his beautiful bride was a moment I’m sure Michelle will never forget. I know I won’t!
Michelle and Tim were surrounded by family and close friends as they joined in the union of marriage. The love and joy for this amazing couple was felt by all in attendance.
The reception was a blast and DJ Geoff Johnson sure knows how to get a party started!
Michelle and Tim, I can’t thank you enough for choosing me to document your wedding day! There is no doubt in my mind that the two of you are going to have an incredible life together. Wishing you all the very best on this new and spectacular journey. XOXO Cat
