YellowBird Wedding

because simple is beautiful

On Thursday June 21st I had two options: I could go to my regular 9-5 job, or I could spend the morning in a wooded creek with Josh and Amy as they got married. Yeah…NO BRAINER! So I found myself, at 9:30am, at Kenneglenn Scenic and Nature Preserve with Josh, Amy, their three adorable (and matching) kids and Wendy from Wendy Mitchell Photography. It was a stunning day and we started hiking down a grassy hill on our way to the creek. The blackberry prickle bushes might have given a little bit of pause, but soon we were covered by trees in the woods and finally emerged into the sunshine down at the water. We all hopped into the creek, sometimes trying to stay on rocks, sometimes following little Cole deep into the water, and walked down until they found the perfect spot for the ceremony. And perfect it was! A rock wall off to our side, trees surrounding us on the other side, and the three of us in the middle of the creek, barefoot and happy as Josh and Amy held hands and made this dream a reality. There may have been some crying coming from little humans who fell in the creek, and they managed to parent and get married at the same time. This is a couple who knows how to make it all work. At the edge of the creek they had their own sand ceremony, where all the kids had sand as well as Josh and Amy, and they combined them in their fish bottle to keep for all time…well or at least as long as it lasts since I then saw little Cole add a bunch of water to it…All in all it was a gorgeous moment in a gorgeous place and I was so happy to be there. Congratulations Josh and Amy! It’s very clear that you were meant to find each other and create this family and spend your days in the sunshine enjoying the Earth. Thanks for sharing it with me and much love always!
