We all know the story… boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl, boy buys ring and has big plans to propose to girl, girl says, “I’ve got breast cancer.”
Wait…. WHAT?? That’s not how the story goes!!!
Unfortunately, that was real life for Kurt & Carley. Their fairytale took a sideways spin last year, and their plans for a wedding got put on hold with Carley’s diagnosis. Treatments & hair loss were her reality, instead of dress fittings & cake testings. And WOW is that a terrible trade.
The thing is, even before he had said the vows, Kurt meant them. He wasn’t married yet, but he still meant “in sickness and in health”. And through that struggle, this boy loved this girl. And when she was triumphant, they celebrated together. And last weekend, under the cover of gorgeous trees on a beautiful fall day, they made promises that everyone present knew they were already keeping. In sickness & in health, for ever & ever amen.
Guys, this wedding was an honor to photograph… and now it’s an honor to show it off.
We went off the beaten path a little at Chandler’s Gardens, and I’m glad we did… chasing light almost ALWAYS leads to more gorgeous portrait locations than just using what you’re “supposed” to use.
Showtime!! Just as the sun was setting, the ceremony kicked off deep in the trees.
Mr. & Mrs. Huie!
Our own favorite MegB pulled triple duty at this wedding as designer, day-of coordinator, and Carley’s hair & makeup artist. How she managed to get ALL those things done so beautifully just blows my mind!
Congratulations, Kurt & Carley! Not only on your wedding, but on already beating so many odds together. We can’t wait to see where the world takes you next… and we’ll see you soon for that epic bride & groom session!
