July 2010 What a beautiful evening this was. Ellen & DJ asked me to do a mini wedding shoot and I was thrilled! What a perfect choice for this elegant wedding at home. In just an hour they greeted their guests, took pictures, said " I do!", listened to friends & family offer toasts and cut the cake, all at a pace that was enjoyable for everyone. It is on evenings like this that I am reminded of how simple life can be when we take the time to focus on what truly matters, not what the world thinks matters. In the bible John chapter 15 talks about the struggle of being separate from the world and I reflected on this chapter, specifically verse 19 after the wedding: "If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world." John 15:19. Thank you to Ellen & DJ for reminding me of the importance of family & love, your day was perfectly encompassing of all that truly matters.
