Abigail & Randy

Filed under: Wedding — Char @ 9:09 am

I loved this girl…really loved her! Spontaneous and so full of bubbling life. When she laughs it is with eyes squinted and  head thrown back kinda laugh. He looked at her with a grin of adoration….treating her with utmost kindness and gentleness. They seemed to view life with a contentment…realizing that the simple pleasures are often the best.

So happy, so happy to be together. Ever see comics that have rainbows of hearts spewing from two people in love? I believe Randy and Abigail had that in real life.

A casual Friday evening wedding was perfect. The flowers were fragrant with a full mix of mint tea, hydrangeas, daisies, and perennials all tied up neatly with a green ribbon….every one gathered from the mother of the bride’s gardens.  I met Randy and Abigail on Randy’s home farm. Bright pink shoes were borrowed  and an antique bike was brought to the farm for pictures.  Family wandered around, laughing and joking. Lively cousins ran and played together. Later that evening, Grandpa married Randy and Abigail with gruff affection.

Abigail and Randy, thank you so much for allowing me to be part of your day. I wish you only the best….you deserve the absolute finest life has to offer!

See their slide show here!

Because Abigail is a photographer herself, she was up for anything and scheduled plenty of time for photos! Loved this.

  5. i love the shoes, why do we have the tendancy to make weddings more formal than they really need to be?! Way to cute!
