I can’t believe it’s almost been a year since Jon and I documented Sophia and Sal’s absolutely stunning Arden Hills wedding. It seems like it was not that long ago that I met them over coffee under a warm sky and the new colors of spring.
They told me how they met and fell in love and how their beautiful daughter Gabby brought them even closer together. They also told me they found me through their friends Aaron and Martinique, another incredible couple whose wedding Jon and I shot back in 2013! And as they told their story, It didn’t take too long for me see the loving subtleties of their relationship. It was not just the way they interacted with each other; but also, the way they did with with their Little girl!
Their engagement session only solidified for me the sweetness that was the two of them together. It was the little things. A small glance from her, a quick and small gesture from him, but it all added up to what I know will be happily forever after.
But their wedding day story almost played out a little differently. Just a few short weeks from the wedding, Sal injured himself to the point of being unable to walk! When I got the call I was devastated for him and for them both. But luckily, I saw the wedding community I am so blessed to be a part of rally around them and reschedule their wedding to a day where Sal was able to walk down the aisle and even get down a little bit at the reception. Everything works out for a reason and we get what we give. And I hope what you see in these images are these two lovelies getting everything they deserved…now and forever.
