Have you ever met or known someone that immediately sets you at ease or just always puts you in a good mood? Eilanwy and Matt radiate a wonderful energy that is filled with love and positivity. You can’t help but get wrapped up in it when you are around them and you are left just feeling so happy. This is definitely the feeling that I got myself and from all of their guests at their wedding. It was such a joyous and beautiful wedding to photograph!
When I met Eilanwy and Matt, they were looking to incorporate as many environmentally friendly aspects to their wedding as possible, and since we are a carbon neutral photo studio, it was a perfect match. They got married at Poe Springs Park, had flowers from Swallowtail Farms, and used Fables Catering for their reception, which uses locally grown food to create delicious (and nutritious) meals. It was a tree hugger’s paradise and so I loved every detail of it.
After an intimate ceremony surrounded by friends and family, we took full advantage of beautiful portraits by the water before joining the rest of the group for the reception. If it hadn’t already been obvious how much Eilanwy and Matt’s friends had been touched by them in their lives, it was certainly made clear from the speeches. One after another, different friends came up to toast the couple and told a little part of the story of the two of them meeting and how wonderful the two of them are together. They were filled with laughter and happy tears and by the end of all of the toasts, I felt like I had known Eilanwy and Matt for years myself too!
Later Matt performed a song he had written to Eilanwy on the guitar and then the dance party began! The end of the reception came sooner than expected and with the sun starting to get low, we all lined up at the water’s edge to wish our farewells to Eilanwy and Matt as they set off up river on a boat Matt’s dad had made for them – a perfect ending to a perfect wedding day.
Cheers to all the new adventures heading your way, Eilanwy and Matt!
