If you haven't heard the story yet, I first met Josiah when I first met my husband. He was at the same exact wedding I initially met Matt at and was even there with him for one of the first times Matt & I ever hung out. I remember when Josiah & Reanne started dating, and our friend group grew one more. So when the time came, I was absolutely thrilled when they asked me to be their wedding photographer!
This wedding brought so many emotions out for me as these two were some of our dearest friends. I got to see the details unfold as they prepared for their day and be a part of moments I don't normally get to be a part of as a wedding photographer. In fact, Matt was one of the groomsmen.
During their wedding planning process, I remember receiving Snapchats from Reanne as she worked on the calligraphy & signage for their wedding, months before their big day. So when I received a text message the week of the wedding that her mother's home, where they stored all these items, had burned down from the terrible fires in Sonoma, I was heartbroken for these two and their family. Nevertheless, the wedding was still on with the help of some Reanne's recently married bridesmaids and some good-hearted past brides. Decor was graciously lent for the day and Katie from Honey Brush Design re-calligraphied (if that's even a word) all the name cards and the seating chart.
If that weren't enough to fill me with emotion, the day in-itself was filled with laughter and such sweet moments. Working on the images of their wedding brought back these memories, which made me laugh and made me cry (happy tears, of course). These two will make your heartmelt with how much they love each other.
So without further ado, scroll down to see some of these moments from their day!
