Earlier this summer, we shot the wedding of Justin's sister, Randee, and her husband Cory. Less than 3 months later, we were shooting our second McNeely wedding. We fell in love with this family for a ton of different reasons, but that there was also this uncanny familiarity to them - something about the way that they "gel" together - was so reminiscent for both Amanda and for myself of our own families. They're welcoming, warm, and not prone to bs. We joked and laughed our way through photos in both weddings, and we were absolutely thrilled with the results from them. You know when you're completely at ease with an entire family that they're doing' something right.
Not a single one of the "actually important" things about getting married got lost on these two. They understood exactly how big a step it was, and what it represented. They were in the moment the entire day, and it was obvious in the way they looked at each other. The entire day was planned with plenty of time to simply enjoy the events and the moments in between. Perfect weather. Gorgeous couple. All the time in the world to shoot...we were in heaven. :)
Sam and Justin, we couldn't be happier for you, and we hope our paths cross MUCH more in the future!
A special note goes out to Modern Spin Productions! They were the DJ's at BOTH the ceremony and reception, and on top of that choreographed a beautiful first dance routine for Sam & Justin. If you're looking for a DJ check Marcus & Genevieve out!
