Grow old along with me
The best is yet to be
When our time has come
We will be as one
Joe and Kate had a country Maine wedding like none other and were married in Kate’s father’s field amongst family and friends. The day’s torrential downpour that tore apart streets and flooded basements everywhere abated minutes before their ceremony, making way for a calm, beautiful peacefulness to celebrate their special day. Joe constructed the structure that he and Kate were married in, a large tent in the field provided space to eat, drink, and dance, and about halfway through the festivities a double rainbow stretched it’s arms across the sky.
Weddings are inherently loaded with emotion and that’s a large part about why I love them. I smile when you smile, I well up when you well up, and I dance when you dance.
To date I haven’t shed a tear at the weddings I’ve photographed but I came oh-so close to doing so at Joe and Kate’s when their family and friends began singing “Grow Old Along With Me” by John Lennon. Thanks, Joe and Kate.
