Erin & Griffin | The One with all the Snow

 
The weather called for snow and lots of it. Many prayed the heavy snow would hold off so that all could go as planned for Erin and Griffin. I, on the other hand, selfishly prayed that it would snow throughout the day. I've photographed weddings with snow on the ground, but never with all that fresh beauty coming down from the sky.
 
What happened? IT SNOWED!!
 
The day was spent rushing in and out of Hope Chapel. We took photos while the snow was falling. The people, the snow, the scene, the time...ugh, it was all so beautiful, I kept squealing. (For those unaware, I make sound effects when I'm taking photos. Leave me alone...it's not a crime.)
 
Erin looked like a magic Snow White and Griffin was beaming from ear to ear all day. These two spent the day loving on each other and being celebrated by their family and closest pals. I just love how much these two love each other. It was an absolute delight to photograph their day!

Meet

Griffin

and

Erin

 

The parking lot was full of snow and these guys came early to shovel and make way for the adventurous guests! Unfortunately, with the weather, some were left at home, but for those who trekked out into the snow, I know Griffin and Erin were delighted that you came!

Yes, you're lovely, with your smile so warm
And your cheeks so soft

On this day
I give you my heart,
My promise
That I will walk with you,
Hand in hand
Wherever our journey leads us
Living, learning,loving
Together
Forever

The beautiful flowers from today were arranged by the oh so talented Andraya of FLORA. She and her husband Daniel were expecting their little Lyla James. They very next day we took advantage of the weather and captured some beautiful portraits of them in the snow.

Here they come!

After the newlyweds drove off to start their new adventure together, they made a little pitstop. I met Erin and Griffin at a nearby park so we could truly make some delightful snowy portraits...and delightful snowy portraits they were indeed. 

Some day, when I'm awfully low
When the world is cold
I will feel a glow just thinking of you

And that laugh that wrinkles your nose,
It touches my foolish heart

Lovely, never, never change
Keep that breathless charm
Won't you please arrange it? 
'Cause I love you
