Marlina and Matt are friends first. Sure they are now also newlyweds and everything that comes along with that is true for them too… but, they are still obviously best friends. It is the greatest closeness and such a wonderful thing to support as a basis for marriage. They knew each other from their small town school days and were not living in the same state when a mutual friend connected them together. They talked on the phone for hours and visited each other as often as they could before deciding to take their relationship to the same area code.It is easy to see why they are a good match and on a perfect day in September they made it official. The friend that can take credit for their union was also their officiant. Marlina’s dad could not have looked more the part of a proud dad as he walked her down the aisle. Friends they grew up with stood beside them as they said their vows. While the rain held off, the reception filled with warmth.I was honored to photograph their intimate wedding at the St. Julien. I went to school with these two lovebirds so this day was special for me as well. Thank you for letting me be a part of it, I am so proud to know you both.
Below is a small preview set to get you started… I can’ wait to show you more!
