Mr. and Mrs. Colwell | Cancun, QR
Where to begin; that's a tough one. I'll start by telling you Liz and I have been friends for ten years now (we'll skip this story since it requires telling approximately 5 different stories for it to make sense - but it's a good one!) TEN YEARS! and in those ten years we have had many adventures, the best conversations and been through so much together.
It wasn't until I met Scott that I knew Liz had found her perfect someone.
Scott is kind and generous. He protects and supports Liz. Most of all; he gives Liz this undeniable glow. You know the one.... that electrifying spark that gleams across your face day in and day out, its then you realize you've found the one you are meant to spend your life with.
I cannot begin to tell you how excited I was when Liz and Scott came to me and asked me to photograph their wedding. A destination wedding set in beautiful Cancun at Live Aqua. We walked into the hotel and let me tell you the entry was literally breathtaking! The lines, floor to ceiling windows, huge water feature and lastly; that eucalyptus essential oil which smelled SO refreshing upon entrance. What a magical experience.
The first night we were there, the hotel was releasing baby sea turtles. Something I've always wanted to do. Everyone was gathered round and listening to the care and instructions that go into to releasing these babies, so naturally I had my camera in hand ready to document this experience. Next it came time to set the little ones free - with a turtle in hand, Liz turned to me and said "here, take him. I want you to experience this too" so not only did I get to hold an itty bitty turtle in my hands and feel him move, I was able to release him. It was quite lovely.
I could go on and on about her wedding weekend, the memories made are ones I will never forget. Thank you for letting me to capture this monumental day in your lives and for letting me be apart of your memories.
Congrats to the wonderful Mr. & Mrs. Colwell.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you simply, without problems or pride:
I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this,
in which there is no I or you,
so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand,
so intimate then when I fall asleep your eyes close.
