Mary Ann + Mike, A Glen Oak Country Club Wedding, Clarks Summit, PA
I remember when I first met Mary Ann and Mike. I knew immediately that I really enjoyed being around them! I felt like we were old friends catching up with one another. Mary Ann and Mike celebrated their wedding day on October 8, 2016 at the Glen Oak Country Club and I was blessed to be there to capture it! One really cool thing that happened during their ceremony was that the Holy Father himself blessed Mary Ann and Mike's wedding day by sending them with a beautiful plaque with his signature! Whoa! Talk about BLESSED!
I truly relished in being Mary Ann and Mike's photographer especially when I was spending the first few moments of their portrait session together. Because, just simply reminding them of their time together alone made Mary Ann really, really take in that moment and think about it. She became very emotional and that's exactly what I want to capture. I want to be there for those real life moments when a Bride and Groom arrive together on their wedding day and they realize that they are finally there after all of that hard work and preparation. They're finally married and they have a lifetime of love and happiness and excitement and newness ahead of them. Mike was so moved by Mary Ann that he just SMILED and SMILED and hugged and kissed her. The comfort he gave her in that moment made me recognize he's going to be like this with her forever and will ALWAYS comfort her in her time of need. OH GEEZ! I'm getting emotional now as I'm writing this because it was such a true and genuine moment that I'm literally reliving it as I type.
I am so overjoyed for you Mary Ann and Mike and I wish you both the best! Congratulations on your beautiful marriage and I wish you many happy and loving years together.
