During Martha and James’ ceremony, the pastor of the church that Martha’s family grew up said something that I think describes her perfectly, “The small things are the way to her heart. She sees every detail, every person, every flower, every scent.” And her wedding day was no different. She saw every detail of the day and breathed life and meaning into it. Nothing was done without a purpose. When I first arrived, Martha handed me a large box and inside was filled with so many beautiful, meaningful details, and immediately I knew that this day was going to be much like a investigation – the details would be small and significant, and we would have to intentionally hunt to find them all.
Throughout the whole day, gifts were overflowing. Martha gave James a couple frames letters that she had written him and a book that she found in a book store long before they even met that after reading she knew she would give to her future husband on their wedding day. She also surprised James and had their sweet dog, Harper join them for a couple pictures! James gave Martha a gorgeous heirloom ring that was designed just for her with elements of both of their mother’s ring. They even gifted their guests with multiple small tokens that were in honor their loved ones who could not be with them. Hands down, the best part of the day was during Martha’s sister and maid of honor’s toast. She explained how Martha loved sneaking little notes in her loved ones suitcase, purse, this includes every time that James goes out of town for work. Love letters are Martha’s love language. At the end of her toast, she pulled out a gift for Martha – a huge stack of letters from all of the people that love her, and Martha completely lost it, and I think most everyone else did too.
Martha and James, you two are the perfect complement of each other. It was truly an honor to be able to capture your unforgettable wedding day! Congratulations!
