Summer was finally coming to a close, and Arden Photography was not at our usual venue for this particular wedding. This darling bride’s day begun at Bluff Park United Methodist Church. A beautiful venue that featured a large cross-shaped stained-glass window at its apse above its glistening white elevated altar. Light-hearted conversations were held while the bridal party sipped on their coffee, and embraces of excitement were shared between mother and daughter. Lindy glowed in the late-summer sun, smiles of “today’s finally the day” passed around to everyone she looked at. The bride and groom all but skipped out of the church, hands intertwined, arms raised in celebration at the finale of their ceremony. I captured the beaming newlyweds under a sunset of brilliant pink, orange, and lilac hues; a promise of a new-day’s beginning as a married couple on the horizon. Sparklers lit their path to their foreseen honeymoon as congratulations and well-wishes were enthusiastically called out to the couple.
