Ellen + DJ

Families, Weddings

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.
