It’s not uncommon for me to shed a few tears (okay, sometimes a lot of tears) while going through and editing my weddings, and this particular wedding was certainly no exception! You will not meet a more beautiful couple, inside and out, than Sean and Cierra, and their wedding day was full of some of the most beautifully raw and emotional moments I’ve had the pleasure of capturing as a wedding photographer. Cierra is as kind and sweet as she is gorgeous, and Sean is just a great, genuine person and has one of the warmest smiles, which was spread across his face his entire wedding day! Words cannot describe just how special it was to witness and capture these two together on their wedding day, but thankfully photographs speak when words fail!
Sean and Cierra promised their lives to each other under a bright Carolina blue sky, and ended their night with tons of laughter, music, and dancing! Everything about their day, from Cierra’s jaw-dropping wedding dress to all of the lush florals and blush-toned details, was pure perfection! And while I love capturing beautiful details as much as the next wedding photographer, what I enjoyed so much about this wedding was capturing the pure joy on Sean’s face as he saw his bride for the very first time, the tears Cierra shed seeing her dad the morning before the wedding, and Sean’s hand gently reaching up to brush a single tear off of Cierra’s cheek during their first dance as husband and wife. Moments like those are what make my job so rewarding, and their day was full of them!
Sean and Cierra, I have absolutely loved getting to know the two of you during this very exciting season of your lives and being able to be present on such a special day! Thank you for letting me capture all of these beautiful moments – here’s to many more in the future! Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. O’Neal!
