Nuptials involving sweeping embraces are a favorite of mine. All that giddy excitement and joyous celebration packed into a perfect moment between the Bride and Groom; that is what weddings are all about. The love, the happiness, the excitement of it all. And with photographs by Lindsey Gomes to capture each and every twirl, there’s a whole gallery ripe for the picking.

From the Bride… Our wedding day was the most magical and sparkling day. Ryan and I had planned this day for almost a year. We truly enjoyed each and every moment of being engaged and all that comes with wedding planning. From the big stuff to the little details, one thing was clear: we wanted our wedding day to be one thing- A celebration of our love!!! The most beautiful part about our wedding was we did everything ourselves! Our families and friends became so emotionally invested and involved… it made everything feel so personal and intimate.

I can’t help but look back on our day and just become completely giddy. It was the happiest day of my life because I married my best friend, soul mate, and the witness to my life. Mine and Ryan’s favorite part of the day was the ceremony, particularly the exchange of vows and promises to one another. It felt blessed and so powerful. My heart was overflowing with joy and happiness the entire day and it hasn’t stopped! Marriage feels so good, so safe, and so fulfilling! Our wedding day was surely the best day of our lives!
