Last year, I received an email from Sarah telling me about their Union wedding (where they met in the library while attending college together) and their reception at Mabee Farms scheduled for 2018. We set up a time for her to come to the studio to chat a bit more. That meeting had some unexpected news for me. Sarah told me that her Fiance had just been scheduled for deployment and that they wanted to do a “little wedding” at the court house before he left and that they would like both ceremonies (“the little and big wedding”) captured. Now let me just tell ya, I love a good court house wedding. They are so fun and full of excitement. They were joined by immediate family only and it was really emotional for everyone knowing that Marc would soon be off. They certainly celebrated their marriage and enjoyed every moment! When a service member is deployed there is always some question if their deployment will be extended, which in this case was Would Marc make it back home for the wedding? I can’t tell you how happy we were to hear that Marc had made it home safely just a few weeks before the “BIG Wedding”!
Since they have such a big connection to Union College, they knew that being married at the Memorial Chapel right on the campus would be special. Sarah wore her mother’s wedding gown and veil while Marc wore his dress blues (a must from Sarah)! Their reception was held at Mabee Farms (another favorite location for us) and it was such a great evening of dancing, crying, and laughter. We are so happy that we were able to capture both amazing events! We just adore Sarah and Marc and wish you both a lifetime of happiness.
To Marc, his father, brother, and fellow members of the Marines and to your partners we thank you for your service.
From the Little Wedding!
And now the BIG Wedding!
I love that Marc got Sarah another band for the Big Wedding!
This moment brings all of us to tears… Marc’s father saluting his son on the alter.
While at Union, Sarah pitched for their softball team. Dad had to take her to pitcher’s mound for at least one throw…
This moment during their first dance between their mother’s has us in tears…
