Mint Golf Course Wedding
The bridesmaids mint dresses blew gently in the afternoon breeze. The words of 1 Corinthians 13 were written along the sides of the aisle. “Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not it does not boast, it is not proud. It keeps no record of wrong, it is not easily angered, it does not dishonor others. Love rejoices in the truth, it always protects, always trusts. Love never fails.” Micah, the bride, held onto her vow booklet. She was listening to Joel, her soon to be husband, read his vows to her. His words flowed together as the most beautiful poetry. After all the months of planning, and dreaming, this was the moment they had both been waiting for. They moment when they finally became husband and wife. The moment they entered into a covenant relationship with one another, a covenant that God made.
Micah was a dream bride! She prioritized photography in her wedding planning and would do anything to get the shot- and I mean anything! When it came time for bride and groom portraits, Micah and Joel went out on the golf course -while people were hitting golf balls in our direction- just to get portraits with the azaleas! And it paid off big time!! But what’s so amazing to me is that when Micah saw that their grand exit was happening just at the start of golden hour, they came back to the venue after their exit for sunset portraits! How amazing is that?! I don’t know of many people who would come back after their grand exit to take more pictures. But Micah knew that once they drove away, all she would have left of her wedding day was her memories and her pictures. You can’t recreate your wedding day, and it’s my biggest goal to give my couples the pictures of their dreams, so they don’t drive away with any regrets.
Michael and I got a couple of golf carts from the venue wedding coordinator and picked them up in the parking lot. We drove past the guests to the most beautiful part of the golf course and captured the most romantic sunset portraits! I’m so thankful for this time we had with Micah and Joel. While we were shooting, I told Joel he was amazing for coming back to get the portraits Micah has been dreaming of her whole life. I’ll never forget his response. He simply replied, “I love this woman, and I would do anything for her.” Joel, we love your servant’s heart and the way you love your new wife. Micah, you are gorgeous. Your joy is contagious, and we loved being a part of your big day. We hope you are having the time of your life down in the rainforests of Costa Rica. We wish you many years of joy and happiness as you journey through this life together. You guys are truly “mint to be!” Enjoy these few favorites from your wedding day!
