Sharon & Tony {Married} Part 1

The first day of Spring 2012… no it wasn’t snowing… in fact, that was on the 6th day of Winter that it was snowing. The day that Tony and Sharon were quick fast in taking me up on the offer to jump into the fresh snow to have their engagement pictures. Did 3 months race by that fast? Must of… because here we are, the 1st of September on Tony and Sharon’s Wedding Day.

The magnolia trees are out to play. Except… this one was a bit fast off the mark. But that’s ok, petals on the tree or petals on the ground. Magnolia trees are simply beautfiful. As is this dress!

Speaking of beautiful… I have a bride… so happy, so enthusiastic, so lovely and so over the moon to be getting married.

This is Sharon’s parents on their wedding day in 1972. I can see the happiness of Sharon in her Mum. Same smile, same delirious joy!

Almost a year ago to the day, Tony proposed to Sharon with a Ruby up at Mount Cook. They are avid hikers. So Sharon had the fantastic idea to include their shoes in her wedding day. I do love it when people bring their loves and personality into their wedding day. It makes the day even more so, uniquely them!
