Samantha is the lively, hilarious, straight-forward bride and Luke is the relaxed, smart alek, a loving groom who’ll make some of the best parents and lovers.

Samantha & Luke

It’s the wedding day, and Samantha is busy showing off all of her gorgeous decorations while the girls get ready. Luke is having guy time with his groomsmen while trying to peer out his hotel room window to catch a glimpse of his beautiful bride, who just happens to be outside.

As the girls get ready, Samantha, freaking out in excitement, unwraps her dress. She slips into her dress, and while adjusting all the details before heading downstairs, you can tell she is so ready. She is definitely a gorgeous bride. Her final moments are spent with her daughters and sharing some laughs in anticipation of what’s to happen shortly.

As I stand at the other end of the aisle, waiting for the ceremony to begin the wedding party emerges and one by one they start to walk toward me until I see our bride. She has finally arrived. She’s so beautiful.

Samantha is now standing in place looking at her future husband. The love, intensity, passion, that feeling all brides feel yet can’t explain appears in her mind and is seen on her face as she advances forward. While she is doing so, Luke has the most memorable smirk/smile on his face.

As the two now face each other, the tears, the trembling, the love unfolds for everyone to bear witness. They speak their vows to each other, and everything seems to freeze as I document the sacred moments, and then finally, the kiss.

As the day unfolds, it ‘s hard to explain the complexity of these two and the love they share. They are a typical couple on the outside, but on the inside, best of friends, they are unique. A dynamic duo whose bond seems unbreakable. There is no more to say. My words can barely do justice to what I have experienced. The photos will show you the rest.
