Elizabeth and Mark are dear friends of mine and Aaron's. We've tailgated with Mark for years and a few years ago, Mark finally introduced us all (Hi Wikiup!) to his long-time girlfriend Elizabeth. They've now been together for somewhere around 7 years and finally decided to make it permanent! Thank you guys so much for being great friends and having us as a part of your wedding. I also want to send out a sincere thank you to Mark for ruining many of my photos with his weird faces. LOL... It's ok though--I forgive you.
I'll just start with my 2 favorites from the day. Yummy light!! A. Dor. A. Ble. And look at this stud! This was after about 3 minutes of coaching him on loosening his shoulders and his stance. :) Putting in the veil... Laura and I were loving the skylights in the hallway. I love the detail on the side of Elizabeth's engagement ring. A sweet moment as Elizabeth's mother gives her away. And another sweet moment as they take each other's hands for the first time that day. Mark makes himself useful as we walk back into the Arboretum. There was a lot of this: And how can you not love this wedding party shot? I love everything about it! Mark's goofiness did come in handy though! Perfect! They take the floor for their first dance as husband and wife: So happy! The end. Or the beginning? :)
