Christine and Tony had a beautiful wedding last Friday at the Courtyards of Andover. They were surrounded by family and friends and it was a truly magical afternoon.
Red stands for Christine. Gray for Tony. Blue is for Alysia. Orange for Noah. Yellow is Jonah. And pink is for Tony’s daughter. All started separately. In their own jar. Sealed. Waiting to be open. One by one, they were poured. Separately. But soon, they mixed together. Perfectly. Becoming one intermingled love story. Creating an ever beautiful mixture of individuals becoming a family. That is the most beautiful thing about marriage. It takes two families and brings them together into one. And this love story is no different.
Christine and Tony met each other on Match.com. One fateful day, they went on their first date at the 612 Brewery in Minneapolis. As they talked to each other and got to know each other, a love started to grow into a flame. Their love story continued to bloom until they took a trip to Chicago. Tony popped the question alongside the Chicago River Walk after Christine was complaining about sore feet due to wearing her heels all day. It couldn’t have been more perfect! And the rest is history.
The Courtyards of Andover was a perfect setting for these two’s wedding. The courtyard had overarching trees that created a background straight out of a storybook. The pond was humming. The flowers were blooming. And love was in the center of it all.
Christine and Tony decided not to have a first look, they wanted to save that moment for when Christine was walking down the aisle towards him. Instead, Christine wrote Tony a note to read before the ceremony. I always love it when couples give each other little surprises throughout the day that they didn’t expect. Each of them enjoyed the company of their children and closet family members beforehand. Waiting for the big moment to come. Tony’s reaction to seeing his bride for the first time, was priceless. You could just see the awe and love in his eyes and smile when she walked down the aisle. The entire day was just perfect.
Christine and Tony. I want to say thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for allowing me to capture your wedding day. I was only there for a short amount of time, but in that time, I could just feel the love you have for one another in every handhold, look into each other’s eyes, and kiss. The love and support that you had from your children and the rest of your family was so amazing to see and feel. I have no doubt that you will create a caring family together. I hope that you had an amazing time in Antigua. Here are just some of my favorite images from your day. I can’t wait to share with you even more! Continue to love with everything you have.
