Back in July, I was asked to shoot at the wedding of Joe and Robert, as a secondary photographer. Arriving at their house while the two grooms prepared for their day and waited for their first look, I immediately knew that, to Joe and Robert, this was more than just a wedding – this was a milestone. They have been together for 20 years, and they have built a life and love that anyone would be extremely proud to claim as their own. What made the day even more special was that gay marriage had recently been legalized, and their marriage would be recognized throughout the country.
The stories they were telling and the emotion they showed really exemplified what a wedding is truly about. They spared no expense, and they both had fantastic surprises for one another – a Sex in the City wedding cake replica, and a large choir that was brought down from New York just for their ceremony.
I was truly honored to have the ability to capture Joe and Robert’s wedding day. Both of the grooms looked fantastic, their weather was beyond perfect, and they both really showed everyone in attendance what love is really all about.
Congratulations, you two! What an amazing wedding this was!
