I've never seen staff so accommodating to a couple and their entourage during photos. Drinks and food were constantly served and we were escorted through their sprawling property with a golf cart made for six. There always seems to be a stunning tree wherever these two go. Remember the beautiful pink one during their engagement shoot?
A layer of Shannon's gorgeous dress was caught under the golf cart's wide turn and ripped right off. Not even that could phase her. Their reception was gorgeous. Each table was named after a location they had travelled in the world, and had an accompanying photo. The speeches went off without a hitch. Everyone was bubbling over in great spirits. And when the first dance came, an accoustic love song played and Aaron wept. I saw him mouth to her: I'm so emotional.
We were one of the first ones thanked in their speech. As photographers and as friends. Our engagement photos hung proudly on their signing table. And they were more than accommodating to us, knowing we were leaving for our destination wedding that next morning. These things don't go unnoticed. We always work as hard as we can, but the truth is, it makes you want to give even 300% more to people who are kind to you.
We have been blessed to photograph many events through a few connected families this year and we have spent so much time with the Austin's. We love you all and wish you all the joy, love and happiness in the world together!
We know you're one of the one's who will make it to the end. Because some things are meant to be.
