“Marriage: Love is the reason. Lifelong friendship is the gift. Kindness is the cause. Til’ death do us part is the length.” Fawn Weaver
Thomas and Shawnia's wedding on May 20th was simple, sweet, filled with love, laughter and special moments. Everyone was so calm. Not a nervous soul in sight. It was comforting because you instantly knew that they were ready for this. They were made for each other.
When I arrived Shawnia was getting ready in one room and Thomas in the next room. Shawnia had her family and friends around her. Her beautiful daughter Zaria getting ready along side of her. It was the calmest prep room I have ever been in at a wedding! Shawnia opted for a blue dress that fit her perfectly! She was stunning and I couldn't wait to see Thomas take his first look at his bride!
We were cutting it close on time but we had to capture the first look. It was just them. Thomas waited and waited for me to snap and told me, " You're killing me!" LOL The anticipation to see his beautiful bride was too much! But he did great and he teared up but stayed strong as he took in the sight of his gorgeous wife to be!
I loved how Thomas' brother and groomsman watched and gave him the thumbs up!
Shawnia radiated as she walked down the isle and it was a beautiful ceremony. My favorite part was watching Thomas speak to Zaria and give her a ring as well. It was so touching and amazing to watch this blended family unite!
The rest is history! Together they will share their life and love. Congratulations again to the bride and groom. May your life be filled with much happiness and love!
