Planning a wedding can be incredibly stressful. Between finalizing guests lists and menus and springing for every little expense that comes up out of the blue, by the time you're done, it's easy to lose sight of why you're getting married in the first place.
For Gina and David, that reality hit hard as they tried to plan an October 2017 wedding. Rather than focusing on their love for one another and the life-changing commitment they were getting ready to make, wedding planning instead became an endless series of purchases and details about things that didn't matter but would cost a ton of money in order to make other people happy.
And that's why, in perhaps one of the most inspired choices I've seen since beginning my wedding photography career, the two called an audible and decided to scrap plans for big gala-type wedding they initially chose in favor of a small and private affair the night before New Year's Eve with just their closest friends and family.
I was lucky enough to be on hand for this shoot and I can't think of a better way to have ended 2016 as Gina and David had one of the most touching and intimately personal weddings I've ever seen on a picture perfect December day proving, once and for all, that you don't need to overdo it to have the wedding of your dreams.
Gina and David had the wedding they wanted and what they wanted was perfection.
As always, thanks for the follow and let me know what you think!
