i do: brooklyn+terry; jasper indiana wedding photographer

terry knew from the beginning that brooklyn was the one. they were young. but it didn’t matter. brooklyn didn’t make it easy for terry, either. he didn’t mind, though; she was worth it. years later we gathered to celebrate the incredible love that is terry and brooklyn. and their families.

i spent the morning with brooklyn, her 4 sisters (including her maid of on-it and twin, lauren), mom and numerous other family members. that’s just how this family rolls. i’ve had the privilege of knowing them for a long time and the theme of their house has never changed: all are welcome, invited and celebrated. being around them, on this most important of days, i realized just how loved each of these girls are by each other. it’s so special.

i usually write to the bride and groom, but today i speak to the entire family: it was my absolute honor to have documented your day. it was a celebration (of all kinds) of life and love and it was perfection. you 6 girls are stronger than anyone in this world knows. it’s admirable and i feel lucky to call you my friends. i hope you enjoy these gorgeous photos.

brooklyn, there are no words for how stunning you were (and are) that day. completely exquisite.

it was important to brooklyn and terry to keep tradition, so instead of a first look, they opted for a “blind first look,” as i called it. still pretty darn cute.

how handsome is terry? i love that you can see how totally excited it was in these photos. you’ve got yourself a good man, brooklyn. (and vice versa, terry.)

i normally don’t do verticals on their own, but this photo stopped me in my tracks. are there words? i’m in love with the fact that both laurie and brooklyn are making the same face, in different directions. like mother, like daughter.
