On April 29th, I had the honor of photographing the culmination of a love story between Stephen and Mary Ann Bender. The details, of course, are theirs to share, but their love began and spread across continents and oceans and is a story of sacrifice, strength and enduring tenderness. On what began as a dreary Spring day and ended in the sunlight and warmth, these two wonderful people enjoined cultures and bridged distance to become something greater than themselves. What follows is but a sample of the beauty and celebration of the day. To the happy couple, my humble thanks for including me and allowing me to capture a few of the memories to be shared. Huzzah and Love to all.
Many thanks to videographer Stephanie R. Schmidt Productions for her professionalism and teamwork approach to making the day a success.
Credit goes also to R & B Productions, the days DJ for keeping the dance floor live and the guests moving.
