As we look ahead to the Spring season, we begin to reminisce about the past. An Autumn day filled with the passing of the summer into the colder months, with the promise of regrowth in the Spring. The clouds billow overhead, as if the sky were hoarding the sunshine for itself. The air is crisp and fresh, it’s clear that it’s no longer Summer. Deep sadness fills you, as you watch the green leaves fade into bright foliage, which will soon turn into the dullness of Winter. You’re forced to look back, reflect on the path that brought you here. You consider each moment that helped you along the way, knowing the even in the passing of the lighter moments into the dark – the sun will rise again, allowing you to continue to grow. You breathe in the crisp Autumn air and smile – welcoming the cold of Winter – the sleeping months that only make you stronger.
In the distance a rustic barn who, through years of hard work and purpose, has finally retired to tilt just slightly as if resting. The basement ceiling, cracked and decrepit, is nearly falling upon us. The failing walls can barely stand the weight of the barn, while the main floor is filled with holes that threaten to swallow us up if we miss a step. The soft breeze passes through the walls, making the old barn sigh with each breath. It’s the perfect setting for a wedding portrait session.
Julie and James’ families have flown in from Australia and New Zealand to share in this life-changing moment.
And one things for certain – they came to celebrate. We’re not talking a little dancing – we’re talking floor-shaking, move-busting – no need for music. The wedding is intimate, with organic, natural, DIY details. This couple, so madly in love, celebrated far into the night. The perfect ending to a beautiful day.
