An Iowa boy meets a California girl at the beach on the 4th of July. I'm no musician, but I'm pretty sure that's the beginning of a great country song. It's certainly the beginning of a great love story - the story of Justin and Missy. These two are something special, folks. Sweet as can be with kindness radiating from their beautiful smiles. They married each other under historic trees in front of their closest family and friends and then partied like it was Cinco De Mayo ... because it was! They danced, sang, kissed, and laughed. And then they added somberos to the mix. Justin and Missy soaked in every single moment of their time with each other and those they care about most and that made it an absolutely perfect day.
Justin and Missy, thank you for allowing me the joy of spending your wedding day with you. The love you two have for one another and the love that was surrounding you on your special day was inspiring. You and your families have been such a blessing to me and I just can't thank you enough for the privilege of being your photographer. Love you both!
Now, get ready for some photos of some beautiful people ...
Missy is one of the most beautiful people I've ever met in real life. All night long, everyone kept telling Justin what a lucky man he was. He agreed.
Even though Justin and Missy had seen each other before the ceremony for their first look, he was still SO excited to see her walk down they aisle! Seeing each other beforehand didn't diminish that moment one bit and both Justin and Missy agreed that they loved being able to spend more of their day together.
