Janice & Richard: Venue 650 Wedding

The clouds rolled in as a few drops of rain hit the ground.  There was a silent calm in the air.  Standing there, back turned towards his bride, Richard waited anxiously, ready to see Janice for their first look. This day was 15+ years in the making.  Their love story started when they were just kids.  A love story that has withstood the test of time and weathered all of life’s uncertainties.

They had grown together through these years and were ready to FINALLY make it official with their wedding at Venue 650.

Janice walked out the double doors, turned towards her groom and walked towards him full of excitement.  She tapped Richard on the shoulders. He turned around and immediately embraced Janice, his hug tighter than ever before.  His eyes filled up with tears as his heart burst with emotion. They hugged each other for, what seemed like, 5 minutes, soaking in the moment.  This day was a long time coming!  It was finally their day; finally time to celebrate!

Janice and Richard’s wedding at Venue 650 was a beautiful celebration filled with their closest friends and family.

As the music began playing, a light sprinkle of rain began dropping from the sky.  Richard walked down the aisle with his parents standing by his side.  They were walking their youngest child down the aisle and witnessing him marry his love.  As the processional continued, the drizzling of rain continued.  Everyone was worried that the rain would pick up; worried that the ceremony that Richard and Janice have been patiently waiting for would be moved indoors. Then, as if the heavens knew, the rain stopped.  Janice stepped outside, accompanied by her dad.  They walked towards Richard and dad gave away his daughter to the man she always knew she would marry.

Janice and Richard, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your day.  I know how important this day was to you.  This day was a long time coming and I am so honored to be the one to capture it all for you! I wish you continued growth and love as you navigate life together! Congratulations!
