Ali + Michael

Jayme BasilComment

Sure, it was raining all day and that forced Ali and Michael to move their garden ceremony under the pavilion, but it resulted in an absolutely GORGEOUS day all around. Umbrella photoshoots for an excuse to keep one another close, the most stunning sunset I have seen in quite awhile, a freakin’ rainbow, and dancing in the rain! Ali and Michael were game for it all and I couldn’t have been more excited to capture it. Oh, not to mention they wrote their own vows! I love love love it when couples take the time to do this for themselves. Ali and Michael in particular have known one another for longer than most, meeting sometime in the fifth grade. After their lives took them in different directions, they always ended up back together. And on their wedding day they got to say exactly why they simply couldn’t stay away, even ending their vows coincidentally with the same exact line from one of their favorite songs!
