On Friday morning, when I woke up, I had no idea who Hannah and Matt were, nor that I would be taking their wedding photos that day. These spontaneous moments are what I live for and I am SO happy that I was available at the last minute! Hannah and Matt have an incredible story. This past September, they both found their way to Chino Latino on night. Little did they know that their lives would change that night. It was literally love-at-first-sight and just a few short months later, Matt proposed! The couple chose to stick to their 'non-traditional' ways and planned a mini-elopement this past Friday. I asked each of them what they loved so much about the other and Hannah had the perfect, simple answer, " I love the way he loves me." It was SO refreshing to photograph this couple and their non-traditional love. The thing is whether you plan out every last detail for years or whether you wing it, a wedding is a wedding and love is love. That message is the same, no matter how you go about it! We spent an hour together, right before Hannah and Matt went to the courthouse, along with their immediate families, to officially become husband and wife. I couldn't be happier to have been a part of their magical day. It was simple, genuine, authentic and embraced absolutely all the love a wedding day is made of!
Congratulations to Hannah and Matt! I wish you nothing but a life filled with happiness!
