Oh my. Catherine and Benjamin. They are seriously adorable. From the moment I met these two and learned of their dental school meeting, I adored them. So on September 10th, I was so happy to join them at the Karpeles Manuscript Museum for their long awaited wedding. And my favorite photographers Ayres Photography was there, so really, just the cherry on my sundae! It was a warm day, and pretty darn hot inside the museum. If I hadn’t noticed myself, I would have noticed after poor Ben brought it up a few times. Nerves plus heat is hard. And while he was super excited, I could tell her was nervous too, and was already looking forward to getting some fresh air afterwards. Catherine was hiding out with her bridesmaids downstairs where it was cooler, and she was beaming and ready to go! After everyone arrived, Ben and his groomsmen and myself made our way to the front of the hall, and both looked forward to Cate making her appearance. She looked beautiful when she did and I think that was a moment where Ben forgot about the heat and the audience and was only focused on her. He may have been distracted again though as the ceremony went on and sweat began to pour down his face. It reminded me of how sweaty my husband was for our wedding, so I found it extra cute. After their readings and vows, Catherine and Benjamin took part in a unity ceremony where they tied a fisherman’s knot together. It was a little difficult to get it right, and their guests loved it. Laughing and smiling the whole time. It was just like their relationship. It took time, but now it’s done and it’s strong and will last the test of time. Soon enough, it was time to kiss and to head out to the next chapter of their life! Congratulations Benjamin and Catherine! It was such a wonderful day, and I know you have so many wonderful days ahead of you. Best wishes for a happy life!
