“Lots of HAPPINESS and JOY and LAUGHTER”
I can’t think of two more deserving people to have not only one, but two amazing wedding days, than this sweet couple. Andrew and Marlayna were married on the ocean shore in tropical Mexico in February and then came home for an amazing celebration among the beautiful winter setting of Polson Montana a few weeks later. I was honored to capture their celebration for the Montana portion and although probably not as warm as Mexico it was a perfectly beautiful winter-ish day here in Montana.
Andrew and Marlayna are so much fun to photograph and they are so sweet together. Andrew knows just the thing to say to get Marlayna to laugh and the way she looks at him is so genuine and perfect. Marlayna told me her and Andy and I are the best of friends and their love has always been about HAPPINESS and JOY and LAUGHTER… I think you can definitely see that in their photographs.
It was so much fun to spend time with all their friends and family….what an wonderful, kind group of people. I have to admit that one of my favorite parts of the day was getting to see Andrew and Marlayna’s wedding ceremony video from Mexico. Getting to see Marlayna walk down the isle in her amazing dress, to hear the sounds of the ocean crashing below, and to watch them share their perfectly written vows with one another, through tears and laughter, it almost felt like being there…what a special gift to bring home with them and share with everyone here.
Andrew and Marlayna, I am so excited to keep up on all your travels and hiking adventures together. Cheers to all the HAPPINESS and JOY and LAUGHTER that is yet to come.
