Amy & Tom have a love story that leaves single people sighing. Their infatuation with one another goes beyond the shared love of guns, law inforcement, and their sweet boy Carter. It goes into their kindness and respect for one another. You can tell they genuinely want the best for each other. They seek to help the other be the best person they can possibly be, while cherishing and celebrating who they already are. That’s the caliber of love that challenges other marriages–it certainly challenged TJ’s & mine.
When it was all said and done, we left while they were still laughing, mingling, and music was still blasting through the air. Between the nerf gun shooting range, the incredible selection of spirits and pizza, and their history-steeped handfasting ceremony, this wedding has to be one of the most emotive, organic examples of what it means to truly love another person. As we watched them greet their guests with hugs, laughter, and real joy, and as they moved through the crowd, hands subconsciously intertwined any time they were forced to separate and moved back together, eyes constantly resting on one another, you could see that each table went from being happy to completely overflowing with joy. It was an incredible phenomenon, to see their love and personalities create such a warmth and happiness in those they chose to surround themselves with. It’s one of the few receptions I’ve gone to where everyone was having so much fun, hardly anyone left by the time we were done shooting.
We’re still swooning, but while we could wax eloquent about the details and the kilts and the brooch and the pizza, Amy & Tom hired us to document their wedding with cameras. So we did.
Oh, and don’t forget to check out a special surprise link at the bottom. Those vows of theirs….gah.
