Mr. and Mrs. Love are married! Yes, that is right, Love was written all over this wedding. When I heard that is their last name, I thought “no way!” Could that be any more perfect? Oh, wait, once I met Carli and Connor I realized what I thought was the impossible. It does get more perfect.
These two people are a dream. Between Carli’s bright smile (which is always beaming) and Connors fun-loving personality, this wedding was a match made in heaven. It was probably the most fun, sweet, gorgeous and meaningful wedding days I have seen. The other day I heard a quote that said, “The best pair in the world is a smile and a cry. They won’t always meet each other at the same time, but when they do, that is the best moment in your life.” I thought that was so dreamy. Then I thought about Carli and Connor’s wedding. This was not just a moment where these met, it was a whole span of moments. Felt, enjoyed, reveled in. Between the two of them, their friends and family and their beautiful little boy Henry, there were more smiles and tears than my camera (or heart) could handle. I had to join in the sentiment.
They had their ceremony inside Albert’s Lodge at Spruce Mountain Ranch. It was in front of the fireplace and the candlelit aisle and large illuminated love sign made the whole place feel intimate and romantic. It was gorgeous. The ceremony was sweet. They had a slight twist on the traditional vows that made it unique to them. Even their little boy Henry got to walk down the aisle and be a part of it.
The rest of the night was so much fun. The toasts were hilarious and it was the first time I ever heard a groom introduce his best man before the toast. He basically gave a toast about him. That is love and friendship. Her dad started his toast out with sweet things about his daughter and deep love for her. Then he turned his attention towards Connor. A man that was fun and silly all day started with what we thought might be a joke. “And then there is Connor…” but there was no joke to tell because his heartfelt love and appreciation for the man his daughter married was overflowing. That is a daughter’s dream.
It was a wonderful and unique day. From having Henry join so much of the celebration to the boys silly jokes, first couples photos after dark and beer pong at the end of the night there was never a dull moment. It was beautiful and sweet, sentimental and honest, romantic and fun and most of all it was them. Congratulations to Connor, Carli, and Henry. Cheers to a life as wonderful, if not better, than your wedding day!
