It was nearing the end of October in Michigan. That time of year when you really can’t predict what weather will bring…..but I had a strong feeling it didn’t matter. Alexis contacted me months before asking me if I was available on a Wednesday for her wedding. I wondered why a Wednesday. She went on to explain that her fiancé, who has served in the war, wanted to get married on his “alive day”. The day he stepped on an IED causing him to lose both of his legs above the knee and there was no possible reason he should have lived through it….but he did. He was not dead. He was alive, and what better day to marry the woman you vow to spend the rest of your life with than on that very same day? What better day to blend two families than on the day feel most thankful to be alive!? This was hands down one of the most emotional ceremonies I’ve ever photographed. Standing in my little corner watching Bobby vulnerably well up with joy and cry as he watched his Bride walk down the isle. Watching Alexis recite vows to Bobby’s son about the kind of influence she plans to be in his life. It was simple. It rained, it snowed, there was sleet and wind but none of that mattered. What mattered most was the evident love that radiated this wedding day! Bobby and Alexis, thank you so much for trusting me with this day! I am absolutely honored to have witnessed such vowing of love!
Enjoy as you walk through the wedding day of Bobby and Alexis with me!
