katie and timothy yellow kiss

I truly enjoyed this beautiful autumn engagement in East Atlanta.  Timothy and Katie are relaxed and so loving, so gentle with each other, so obviously deeply happy together, and proud of the other.  It’s energizing to be around such positivity and joy.

Nayomi and Whit said their vows on the Lake Merritt Bandstand, in the middle of the Oakland city park.

Right before the ceremony, for about 30 minutes, the sky opened and it rained pretty heavily.  The families went out to buy umbrellas, and what at first seemed a disappointing turn on their wedding day suddenly seemed like a bright spot of meaning.  The bride and groom quietly chatted to each other about what a great omen this must be.  California is suffering a severe drought, after all, and it hasn’t really rained in months.  Rain on their wedding day was an incredible gift, they decided, and a marvelous beginning to their marriage.

The rain stopped just as the ceremony began, and it left the city in a cool, glowy haze.

The ceremony was so love-filled, so honest.  It was intimacy, poetry, family and friends.  Everything you want a wedding ceremony to be.
