Just us.

Last Friday, I had the privilege of being one of the very few people at C & K's wedding. And by "very few" I mean, the only one besides themselves & Loveta, the officiant. The two decided to get married on the day that marked 1 year since they got engaged. They got married at 9pm at the Annapolis Wedding Chapel with just the two of them.  A wedding like this is a brave move and I feel only for certain couples. For these two, it was the right choice. To see them just getting married for the two of them was really unique. Their vows were said in a more sincere & honest tone than you hear at most weddings. They only focused on each other after the "first kiss" instead of waving to a sea of people.  As I snapped pictures after the ceremony, the newlyweds were giddy & gazed into each other's eyes. No receiving lines, no bubbles or rice.  It was a truly intimate ceremony & to be such an integral part of it was, again, an honor. Now, just to clarify, I am by NO means putting down a traditional wedding with loads of friends and family & bridal parties the size of the Duggar family.  It's so important for most people (myself included) to celebrate these moments in life with those closest to us. That being said, I am so glad I got to be a part of this unique wedding experience. It was just down to the bare bones of what it's all about; two people committing themselves to one another for the rest of their lives. That simple. Refreshing reminder? Yes indeed. TThis was a special request! I do NOT normally get picture with the bride and groom! Loveta (owner & officiant at the AWC said, "Okay, now look at Danielle!") Thought it was worth sharing. It's always an interesting feeling being on the other side of the camera :)
