Hubbard Park Lodge Wedding: April & Wesley!
April and Wesley went through a whole host of emotions leading up to their Hubbard Park Lodge wedding. As April later told us, “Leading up to the “big day” I found myself wrought with anxiety. I couldn’t explain it: everything was finally done and I was about to marry the love of my life. It was very peculiar, because I should have been happy and excited, not anxious. But when I woke up July 23, 2016 and all that anxiety turned into intense excitement. I am certain that it was simply excitement disguised itself as anxiety that I was feeling.” It’s these internal workings that couples go through that we pride ourselves on being able to tune into as we are telling their story. The images we create are more than just a document of happenings. They are the emotional remainders and reminders that give people a window into how they felt at that time.
Most couples understandably want everything to be perfect on their wedding day. Since that rarely happens, we find that the couples who are emotionally prepared for the inevitable mis-steps are able to roll with whatever comes their way. This allows them to remain emotionally present throughout the day and enjoy their wedding. So much goes into a wedding day, you definitely want to enjoy it.
More from April: “My wedding day nothing could bring me down. When my dress broke my sister fretted, first trying to fix the dress hook, then trying to sew me in, and when neither of those attempts worked she finally applied a safety pin and hoped it would hold. I didn’t care that the safety pin was clearly visible. I couldn’t stop grinning wildly: I wanted to see Wesley. When our ceremony was moved indoors on account of the rain, I couldn’t care less I just wanted to get married already. It was an emotional roller coaster. I guess if I had any words of wisdom for future brides, it would be this: you’ll experience an abundance of emotions before and during your wedding, and it won’t all be good. Take the bad feelings in stride and when that excitement and joy kicks in, enjoy it and don’t let anything bring you down.”
Our goal to provide amazing photos can only happen with an amazing experience. We try to encourage all couples to take April’s wise advice.
