Ty and I are in the midst of making the final touches on our new website!! We’ve spent the past few weeks curating all of our work from the past few years and updating our new portfolio page. In doing so, we realized we never shared our sweet couple, Ryan and Colleen’s feature film. You probably saw their highlight film that we shared last summer, but we’re SO excited to share their feature film with you today!!
“She’s everything I need.” These words were Ryan’s response to his best man when he asked him how everything was going shortly after him and Colleen had begun dating in college. And now on their wedding day, 6 years later, he stood before Ryan, Colleen and their closest friends and family and reminded them of those words. “I really just hope that you guys remember that, he said, that you are everything each other needs”.
Ryan and Colleen were married in Charlottesville, at one of our favorite venues, Mount Ida Farm at the new lodge that had just opened not too long before their wedding day. As Colleen got ready with her girls, sweet smiles, a whole laughter and “I can’t believe this day is finally here” sentiments were shared throughout the room. As Colleen put the final touches on her makeup and slipped into her bridal gown, the whole room grew quiet. And out of the corner of my eye I saw her Momma just beaming as she slipped her veil over her shoulders and told her to wait right there while she got her dad. And that’s when all the tears started. There’s never a moment more sacred than the one when a Daddy sees his baby girl for the first time on her wedding day. And then after the tears were dried and Colleen sat down to read Ryan’s note, we all reached for the tissues again when she read his promise – “I promise to devote my life to showing you how important you are to me.”
These two are just meant to be together and we are so grateful we had the opportunity to document their sweet day. Enjoy!!
