Elise described their relationship, finding each other, and knowing each other as soulmates to be incredibly calming. No anxiety, no agitation. And from the moment she first saw Ryan, this is how she would describe their relationship. She has never questioned that he was the person she wanted to spend her life with, and was more sure of it everyday.
During their vows, Ryan looked at her with the softest gaze and told her that this was just another day. Another day that he got to hold her in her arms, another day he got to see her smile, and another day he got to share his life with her. And while their wedding day was special because of the significance it held, today was the same as every other day because it was one more day that he got to love her with all of his heart and soul.
Everyone you asked on that day said the same thing: Ryan and Elise had a heart for others. They poured themselves selflessly into their work, friendships, family, and their own relationship. Even on their wedding day, it was about the people that surrounded them – from the love notes they wrote eachother that were read mid-ceremony, to sitting with their parents and grandparents at the head table, toasting the night away, they focused on being together and in the midst of the closest family and friends one could have.
Elise and Ryan, I could not be more grateful for the privilege of documenting your day, and more importantly, witnessing the incredible bond that you two have. I can’t wait to see where life takes you, and enjoy that tropical sun for me! xx – M & M
