This day was insane on so many levels, It was one of the hottest days in August 2018. I believe it was 37 degrees and I had the best idea to wear all black! - I’m surprised I didn’t get heat stroke. LOL! The dry, hot, & smoky air didn’t stop anyone though the day was so beautiful and was filled with so many laughs and so much love! We were all surprised by one of the flower girls little Jacky, she had been in an accident just less than a month before. We all thought she wouldn’t be able to make the day but, she had us all fooled! it was a rush of emotion for all of us including me. This beautiful, strong little girl got to roll down the aisle with her big sister after all. This day was truly special for many reasons, Richele & Carson are actually close friends of mine. I’ve known Richele for years, she moved to England for 2 years and in that two years our friendship drifted, long story short - when she moved home we reconnected, and it was like she never left! 9 months early I ask Richele to help me with some promotion work and had herself and Carson shoot a ‘Couples Session’ at this time Richele told me she was in the early stages of her first pregnancy! I was in tears I couldn’t have been more excited and happy for them both. We had planned to do a revel in the coming months, but a few weeks later I received the text after her 12-week apt and right then my heart broke into a million pieces for her as she learned there was no longer a heart beat. Knowing how much this meant to Richele and her dream of becoming a mother all I wanted to do was take the pain away. She was so unbelievably strong after going through the miscarriage, her strength was empowering. The loss of a child in any form no mother thinks of going through but in reality, happens more often then we think. So to honour their baby they both decided to get married on the due date, where they would be surrounded by love and the people closest to them. I was so grateful to be able to capture these moments and be apart of such an incredible day!
Id like to share a quote for miscarriage and infant loss awareness.
“ Little dove I love you so but i know you had to go. So spread your wings & fly my love soar above the world my dove. Paint the sky in indigo, let your greatest colors flow & ill search the sky for your rainbow.”
