Wedding Bells & Studded Stilettos

I have always had a love for weddings, they are the days where people get together out of love and happiness for the lucky couple who have chosen to spend the rest of their lives with one another for better or worse, though the tears & giggles, and everything in between.

Over the beautiful summer of 2010, one of my closest of friends Morgan Lee Kuhn was married to Alex Greer in an alluring outdoor ceremony. Everything was so magical that day from the warming sunlight glistening on the gems of her gown, to the freshly cut flowers surrounding the happy couple. The aroma of daisy's, lilies, and babies breath fill the air as you walk onto the damp green grass still drying in the sunlight from the morning dew, making the ground like almost as if there are diamonds carefully placed amongst the neatly lined chairs. With all of the girls hair perfectly curled and boys ties flattened nicely on their lapels as the wedding begins. Smiles and light chatter can be heard as Alex and the Bishop wait at the enchanting waterfall for everyone to gather round. As the guest take their places the music begins to chime in and the bridesmaids and groomsmen step out the shelter of the cool house and into the illuminating sunshine. Right, left, right, left.... are the thoughts as we all walk simultaneously down the isle while the girls grip the arms of the gentle men in hopes that a slight misstep and tumbling to the ground will be their fate. We separate as we get to Alex who is just beaming with the sheer excitement of finally being able to see his exquisite bride. 

With everyone finally in place the wedding bells chime as Morgan and her father appear at the marvelous french doors that lead into the open gathering. At first glance the brilliant white glowing from her princess ball gown make you think that nothing could be more magnificent and then you take a closer look at the intricately placed beads along the gown & veil, and precise gatherings in the glossy fabric. Her skin is completely flawless and every stand of hair is curled to perfection. He father stands towering next to her in his sleek black tux and matching classic ten gallon cowboy hat, just like he always has on. The two almost seem to be a statue for just a moment while everyone stands in honor of her. The walk begins as she ever so gracefully walks the isle towards the man she loves most dearly, there is not even a pause in her step, even with her studded stilettos making the walk even more challenging. 

Finally Morgan and Alex are together holding each others hands staring deeply into each others eyes. This is it, this is the moment they have been waiting for their whole lives but never imagined it would be this wonderful.   

This is how just a moment of the most important day of their lives was spent. I felt beyond privildged to be allowed to spend this time with them. Morgan is a strong & divine woman who deserves a man who she will be able to trust for the rest of her life. 

Congratulations to you both <3
