Gina and Ryan actually pulled off a true elopement… as in… it was a SECRET! I felt like such an insider, knowing for months that this was going to happen. Remember their engagement session in the summer? I had to be careful in writing the blog post and in everything I said on social media too about these two. It was so hard because I was so excited about the wedding, knowing it was going to be beautiful. I was right about that.
We met them at the hotel and then took a limo ride up to the summit of Cadillac Mountain. We met Jenn there, the officiant, and headed into the mist for their mountaintop ceremony. I’ll never get over how fast a wedding ceremony happens and couples go from engaged to married in the blink of an eye. Before we knew it, it was portrait time! These are some of our favorite portraits from the whole year. I can’t quite put my finger on it exactly but a lot of things came together all on one day for some really cool photos. Being a part of weddings like this will always be one of the biggest honors, because we are there as proxy! Everyone who loves and cares about them isn’t there, so the only way they can see the event is through our eyes. Being the storyteller for elopements takes on an even greater meaning in that context and we wont ever take that role lightly. Thank you for Gina and Ryan for trusting us in that way.
