“Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of eternal passion. That is just being “in love” which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.”
Lynette & Doug’s ceremony began with these words, written by Louis de Bernières, and spoken by one of their closest friends. As their guests sat in awe of the beautiful Fall weather, I couldn’t help but wonder if each one of them was thinking what I was thinking. That these words described Lynette and Doug perfectly!
I first met Lynette and Doug at their engagement session. I immediately felt like I was meeting someone I’d known my whole life in Lynette! She has that way about her that’s engaging, kind and charismatic in how she loves others. But no one knows that love more than Doug! Watching these two giggle constantly with each other (it’s really precious!), I knew that their wedding day would be a special one. And I wasn’t wrong!
My favorite part of their day happened during toasts! Lynette and Doug had two maids of honor and two best men because they’re just that loved, and each of their toasts to the happy couple was magnificent! But my favorite toast came when Doug’s dad took the microphone. He unfolded his notes and began his toast… in Spanish! Since several members of Lynette’s family only spoke Spanish, this was such a beautiful gesture that brought the families together. Lynette’s father instantly stood up and cheered him on! I have a feeling those two are going to be friends for life!
Lynette & Doug, I am so excited for you two and beyond blessed that I could capture your wedding day! Thank you for fully embracing me in these memories and always being up for anything! Garrett and I are always up for another Bartaco visit whenever you’re free!
Thank you to all of Lynette & Doug’s vendors who made this day so much fun! It’s truly a gift getting to work with so many talented people!
