Dusty rose with an overdose of joy?
When I envision the Nilsson wedding, I see beautiful pops of a dusty rose color pallete and joy on everybody's face.
Complete and utter joy.
As you start to scroll, you will quickly understand exactly what I remember to be Wesley and Angela's wedding day--perfect, if you ask me. Or them! ;-)
I mean, I don't know how many times I've said this OR had other people TELL ME this, but what a beautiful couple--their smiles--you can't beat. Both of them--they scream JOY; they scream LOVE; they scream PURE. What a power couple.
As you know, I tend to feel strongly about all of my couples, especially after their wedding days. For me, it's such a sweet and intimate experience that I get to be a part of that, I leave their exit feeling like I'm waving good-bye to my bestie. And it was this and more with Angela and Wesley, because they were unique in a way. For most couples, my communication exchange is between the bride and myself via email. However, with Angela and Wesley's season of life, he was able to help with much of the wedding planning, meaning he handled a lot of the communication with the vendors. This meant, I felt like I really got to know both of them even better than most, and it truly made the day feel like I was photographing my two close friends who I've watched fall in love and commit themselves to the Lord.
Y'all, it was a sweet, sweet day.
My stomach dropped when Wesley's jaw did. When he saw Angela, the whole world stopped. His reaction(s) were priceless, and Angela--YES, girl, YES. Absolutely jaw-droppingly stunning. This bride--inside and out, she is beautiful! So fun, so spunky, so lovely.
While all the beautiful details and all the joyful moments were plentiful throughout June 9th, a favorite of mine would have to be the "first look" between Angela and her father. It's absolutely a favorite and absolutely a sweet one.
Because they ARE to me--my sweet friends are now Dr. and Mrs. Wesley Nilsson, and I'm beyond excited for them to begin their journey in Connecticut as he pursues his medical career and Angela continues to pursues her teaching career. They truly have an adventure ahead of them, and I'm eager to watch it unfold!! Hugs to Nilssons!!
