It all started at the Starbucks section at Kroger. Kristi was sitting there at one of the tables enjoying a vanilla latte, when she saw Bruce searching for an empty seat. On impulse she said to him, “Come on and sit right here by me.” He obliged.
Sixteen months later, here they are exchanging passionate vows amongst their children, Bruce’s parents, and their family-friend officiant. No one but us had known prior about Kristi and Bruce’s plan to wed for that day, which made for a very laid-back and relaxed ceremony. There were many happy tears, as well as hugs and kisses given between all in attendance. It was a precious evening.
Photographing these two love birds was fun! They were so easy to direct, and made me laugh during the times in between. The kids brought so much joy to this event as well. I was so blessed to have been the chosen photographer for Kristi and Bruce’s intimate elopement at the Staghorn Chapel in Nicholson, Georgia. It was such a beautiful unifying moment of becoming “one”, as well as a blending of families. The vows they exchanged to each other were some of the very best vows I have ever heard. It wasn’t just the eloquent words that were put to paper, it was in how they were sincerely expressed that wrenched our hearts. Simply Beautiful.
