A few weekends ago, I had to opportunity to photograph a wedding.  Cue major butterflies and nerves!  It’s only the second wedding I’ve ever shot, and while I love trying out new things, I find weddings to be pretty nerve wracking and intimidating!  But I couldn’t miss the opportunity.  It was a small, intimate ceremony at our friend’s house, and it was simple and perfect and beautiful.  I was honored to be a part of it.

I love weddings.  I love the electricity and the love in the air and the anticipation of not only the day, but also the anticipation of the future as two people begin their lives together.  These two have quite the adventure ahead of them!  Orly lives in Israel, and three days after their ceremony, they boarded a plane back to Israel.  I know Chris’ family and friends are going to miss him terribly, but at the same time, it’s impossible to not be happy for a couple that are so obviously in love and ready for their lives to begin as husband and wife.  It’s an amazing thing to witness.

I have so many pictures to share from the day, and I had the hardest time narrowing it down.  I’m just going with it and sharing (more than) a few from their day.  Enjoy!

I love these two pictures of Chris’ parents hugging on them just after the ceremony.

Chris’ dad gave such a wonderful toast.  I was at his daughter’s wedding last fall, and I knew from that experience he would say the most beautiful, heartfelt words.  He has such a gift for sharing his heart.

With the impending move to Israel, it was only appropriate that Chris and Orly be given a gift to remind them of Texas.

Congratulations, Chris and Orly!  May God bless your marriage and your life together! Thank you for letting me be a part of your day.
