i’ve known Lynnae since my grad school days – we did athletics marketing together at Oakland and became friends. Lynnae’s heart is complete gold and i feel so lucky to have met her! then, she ended up getting engaged to this handsome fellow and she asked if i would do their engagement and wedding photos – ummmm DUH!!!!! what an honor!!!!
the engagement session between these two was enough to let me know they were completely electric together. it takes about five seconds to see how in love they are.
from then on, i knew their wedding was going to be so, so amazing.
they were married by Lynnae’s brother-in-law, which is now my third wedding this season of a family member doing the marrying, and honestly, it really is the best!
i didn’t even get past Chris’ reaction seeing Lynnae for the first time before i was crying… and no, those were not the first tears shed that day… nor were they the last….
the notes these two wrote each other, the personal vows they made, the fact that Chris bought Lynnae a PIANO as her wedding gift so she could still play when they moved in together?!?!?!
oh, and the inscription that Lynnae got engraved inside Chris’ ring, “Until we’re 115…” that Chris didn’t even know about until wedding day?!?!?!
i mean, come on, people. total cry fest….
from the bottom of my heart, Lynnae and Chris, congratulations. you guys are perfection together and it was such a privilege to document your love.
