Final advice from the officiant: "Don't go to bed angry. Always say I love you at the end of each day and before leaving each morning." The officiant was the groom's grandfather. This advice truly embodies some of the best practices for helping a young newlywed couple keep each other at the front of their lives together.
I met this couple last fall when I did their engagement photos. In a cemetery, of all places. While it might have seemed an interesting choice to me, this was a place that had some meaning to them. Poor Geo had been awakened early for the engagement photos and wasn't really ready for pictures. But as our time together progressed, we all had fun and laughs as they started playing in the fall leaves.
Dear Crystal & Geo,
Thank you so much for reaching out to me last fall to do your engagement photos! And for the pleasure of capturing your wedding day. I so enjoyed meeting your family and seeing the friendships that led you two together. Always hold each other close in your hearts as you move forward into the next chapter. I'm excited to see what is next for you both. :)
