So excited to announce the winners of the top 10 contests from last week. We had over 2,500 votes and some really really close categories. In the end, these were the winners. Thanks again to all my couples for letting me tell their story. If you did not win, be sure and tell everyone good game before you walk off the court. You couples that did win, make sure you celebrate responsibly. No looting or rioting.
Engagement Session: This is the classroom where Emily & Lucas met. This is the very place their story began.
Wedding Rings: Blake works in visual effects, I wanted him to be able to drop his rings into any film he made in the future. ;)
Bridal Session: Krystle crushed her bridal shoot at Marvin United Methodist in Tyler.
Mug Machine: Much like their wedding day, Lauren & Alex’s Mug Machine was off the hook. (Do people still say “off the hook”?)
Random: Lindsey & Jim’s reception and dance floor was the place to be.
Wedding: I honestly could not have picked a better photo to win this category.
Jaime had been fighting serious migraines all day, in fact we almost had to put off the wedding till later in the day. After the ceremony they were just sitting in the kitchen resting and someone asked them if they were ready to make their entrance and have their first dance. Jaime said she didn’t think she was up for all that. Nolan said no problem. About five minutes later while holding and comforting her they broke out into a slow dance. All alone, with no fanfare, no one clapping, no one watching. I took 3 photos and walked out. It was a moment that just belonged to them.
Just the two of them on their wedding day.
It was a beautiful picture of marriage. It’s not the big public moments that get us through life. It’s not the things we say when everyone is watching. Marriage is about what we do when we are alone.
Marriage is about changing the toilet paper roll.
Marriage is about making the bed.
Marriage is about impromptu slow dances in the kitchen.
Thanks again to everyone who voted. And to all my 2014 couples. Let’s make some images that make these 2013 ones look like poo. :)
