Carla and Michael wrote their own vows, choosing to express how much they meant to each other in their own words. Michael became overwhelmed with emotion as he shared with Carla and the entire congregation how much she means to him and how his life has changed for the better since they first met 6 years ago, outside a Florida hotel, as he roller-bladed past her window at 2am. Carla understands Michael’s passion for The Braves, feels protected as he follows her around the house, unplugging her curling iron, her lap-top or her charger, least any or all cause the house to go up in flames. The fact that these 2 people belong together could not have been clearer. There wasn’t one dry eye in the entire church.

I was so glad my friend Laura asked me to help her shoot this wedding, cos it gave me the opportunity to met with and capture some very special moments for 2 families who could not have been nicer, more welcoming or grateful. Before the evenings celebrations were through, Laura and I almost felt like we’d been adopted. So I’m excited to share some of my photo’s from the day, wish Carla and Michael a long and happy life together and tell Laura, “thank you”, I really had a blast shooting together. Now to some photos.

How do you think the boys were preparing for the big day? Why, with a spot of golf of course.
