Brad & Tonya
They dated for almost 5 years, but say that taking their time was worth it! They could not be happier. “When you marry your best friend, life just feels complete…”
This was one of the most touching weddings I’ve had the privilege of photographing. To start, Brad and Tonya have a love for one another that is TRULY obvious. They have waited for this day for such a long time, and now it’s here!
Tonya is an only child, and that always makes wedding days that much more special. It’s the day that Mommy and Daddy’s little girl has dreamt about her entire life – her wedding! Emotions are running high, and there are kleenex in everyone’s pockets…
[To think that in the midst of all this, I’m the one person that they choose to document their wedding day?! That’s HUGE! I cannot stress how much of an honor that is! ]
Brad’s dad passed away several years ago, so there was one VERY important person missing at the wedding. To honor the memory of his father, they had a framed picture on stage with the bridal party for the ceremony. It wasn’t until they decided to include the photograph in the family picture that it really touched me. Not sure why, but I thought that was an awesome way of including someone you love that is now in Heaven!
Not only was this a very touching wedding, but it was a beautiful one! Brad and Tonya were able to have the wedding they had dreamed about, with the family and friends that they so love!
Congratulations and best wishes! It was such an honor to spend this special day with you!
