Richard & Gina | Carmen's Country Inn & Gardens
When I think back to Richard and Gina’s wedding day there are a few key things that come to mind… family, strength, love and laughter. It was an emotional wedding for sure. If I remember correctly there was a lot of rain and it was so hot during the weeks leading up to their wedding day. Gina didn’t seem to worry about it though. Gina’s father passed away when she was a teenager, however on her wedding day Gina was certain that her father was looking down on her from above and that he would give her perfect weather for her special day. So what do you think happened? Richard and Gina had the most beautiful summer day. It was partly cloudy and about 75 degrees. Just the right amount of sunlight glared into their photos together after the first look. It truly was a beautiful thing to witness and you could feel all of her emotions.
Richard and Gina were surrounded by so much loving family, much like most couples on their wedding day, but this time was different… when the bride and groom felt joy, you could feel the joy of the whole room. When they felt sadness, the whole room cried with them. You can tell that their relationship is deeply rooted on the strength they get from their family and loved ones. I won’t forget the heavy moments of Gina hugging her mother ad they remembered her dad and how much he would be wanted to be there. So many genuine moments. Not only was the room filled with love, but it was most definitely filled with SO MUCH LAUGHTER! To this day I remember all the laughs at Richard and Gina’s wedding. Gina in particular had the greatest laugh and the most genuine smile that could light up a room.
These are the moments that make our job so meaningful. We were there to capture every single one of those emotions and it was freaking awesome.
