Oh, boy. I don't even know where to start -- with how wonderful these two are? With how much joy they've brought to the Glass Family? With how adorable every. last. detail. of this wedding was? Art and Reika have such a sincere love that encourages and sharpens those with whom they come into contact -- their love makes you want to love better, to love genuinely. And so it was no surprise that their wedding was a celebration to begin their lives together, but also a downright party during which they danced and hugged and high-fived the friends and family that they hold so dear. There were folks from all over the world and never have I seen wedding guests intermingle so well as this evening, which I think testifies greatly to the kind of couple that Art+Reika are.
Not only was their wedding day to die for (I'm serious you guys, when they shared what they had planned I had to work so hard to keep my eyes from popping out of their sockets, cartoon-style, and I'm pretty sure I drooled at least three times...) , but I had the amazing opportunity to photograph their day in film. They were married in an old stone chapel and celebrated with their guests at Art's childhood home with a picnic reception. It was just perfect.
Thank you both for allowing us to celebrate with you in this way. You have a big spot in our hearts and we are blessed to know you. xo
