It was pouring down rain outside, but that didn’t phase Sean and Sarah in the slightest. Sarah looked nothing but overjoyed as she watched the rain fall outside the window at Shadow Creek. They both insisted that they were just used to it. Things never went the way they expected, but they still always turned out to be the best things! That type of easiness is just what you can expect from Sean and Sarah – they take on the world together, fearless. And now they finally get to do so from the same address! It’s been years and years of long distance, they’ve had to learn how to make the very most of the little time they have face to face. And now that they’re actually together? I have no doubt they’ll have the most joy filled, adventurous marriage! Sarah was such an excited bride. Once her perfect-for-her dress slipped on, she was beaming and beaming and beaming. Sean let out the widest grin when he turned around to see her during their first look! They both marveled at each other, even stopping to just press their foreheads together, taking it all in. Their ceremony was both personal and traditional, and I don’t know that I’ve ever seen someone say their vows so intently as Sarah did. She gripped Sean’s hands tightly, leaned in, and then celebrated like crazy as soon as they were pronounced husband and wife! Sean admiring his new ring along the way :]

It rained all day, but Sean and Sarah still took some time to get outside and dance in the rain. Their guests enjoyed a mimosa bar and breakfast for dinner inside the cozy Shadow Creek. And as they finished up, they got to hear the sweetest words about Sean and Sarah. All three of their friends who toasted them affirmed just how perfect they are for each other. How they had no hesitation as soon as they started their friendship. How they had big expectations for what their life would look like together. Sean brought his napkin to his eyes to wipe away tears. And Sarah beamed proudly at him, smiling that excited smile that’s reserved just for him. Everyone danced the night away, Sean and Sarah taking turns to dance with everyone there. They ran off into the misty, sparkler filled night knowing that they now had forever in front of them.

Sean and Sarah, we’ve been looking forward to your wedding for over a year! And it did not disappoint! The way that everyone was joyful and excited even in spite of the rain was just inspiring! We’re so excited for you guys to finally be together. Thanks for letting us into your lives :] We love you guys!
