Wedding: Winston & Lydia

Winston and Lydia’s day took place at Lydia’s home with an outdoor ceremony and reception.  After the day was over and I was editing their pictures the phrase, “Take my breath away,” kept going through my head.  There was so much simple beauty and love woven throughout the day…not just Winston and Lydia’s love, but family love, too.

Allow me to walk you through the day…

A few years ago Lydia’s dad gave this necklace to her…a promise necklace.  During the ceremony Lydia’s dad removed the necklace and gave it to Winston. (48) (49) (50) (51) (52) (53) (54) (55) (56) (57) (58) (59) (60)
