Kim and Neil. Neil and Kim. What more is there to say? These are two truly terrific human beings who have made my life more joyful and fun. It was such an honor and a pleasure to share their wedding day with them and to document it for them to remember forever. If you know Kim at all, or even just look at these photos, the one thing you will notice right away is that she possesses contagious joy. She is strong, confident and full of life, and she brings that with her everywhere she goes and to everyone she meets. You can’t help but be lifted by being in her presence. She is awesome. Neil. Neil is fun, but also steadiness. He is the balance to Kim’s bubbly, in a way that is perfectly complementary…like strawberries with champagne. He is solid, smart and kind. He is awesome.
These two together are an amazing combination. As we got to see them interact with their families and friends on the wedding day, it was apparent that they are much loved and the great people we knew they were. You can tell about a person by the kind of company they keep, and their company was incredible. Their wedding day was full of tears, laughter, and fun. From getting cupcakes at The Sweet Divine to grabbing a beer and playing skee ball at 4 Hands Brewery. Then finally ending up at the dramatic Union Station Hotel, it was a day to remember.
One of my favorite moments was when Kim’s dad, Bob, was sharing his speech and talking about his little girl. The little girl they chose to get. The little girl they adopted. The little girl that’s theirs. Every dad loves his daughter, but this was an especially touching tribute to the young woman she’s become and how proud he was of her. There was not a dry eye in the place. And that’s what it’s really about. Yes, there were beautiful flowers, an amazing cake, great food and beautiful clothes – it was all quite outstanding, actually. But the heart and soul of a wedding is the people there, the love and memories, the firsts and the lasts, the tears and the laughter. This is why we do this. This is love.
Here are some of our favorite images from the wedding, and also…their wedding film! Congratulations Kim & Neil! You’re future together is going to be amazing!
