Second marriage's are typically spoken as a "Here we go again" moment ... but in all honestly and all my years of Wedding Photography that sentiment couldn't be further from the truth. Corrie and Eric showed so much love, compassion, excitement and understanding between each other and both families that it would put those giddy and detailed-soon-to-be-green-behind-the-ears-newlyweds to shame.
Don't mistake my statements as harsh and assuming too much. I just have so much sincere pride and love for Corrie and Eric that it literally oozes and bleeds from the images I've taken.
Pure magic happened on this night.
Before I met Corrie and Eric...
I was recommended by a friend of Corrie's who contacted me literally weeks before the wedding to see if I was available. Impromptu weddings are incredibly exciting because the anticipation of the unknown is so great. As a photographer you usually don't care much for any last minute surprises, but... I welcomed it and it fired me up even more to come thru for these guys.
In the end... everything about Corrie and Eric's wedding was so wonderful.
So, finally, ... if you ever plan on marrying for the 2nd, 3rd or 4th time.... it doesn't have to be any less celebratory than your first time. It can be different, and should be different.... but it shouldn't have any less passion, love or pride for one another than the first time you walked down the aisle.
God Bless Corrie and Eric, you were so wonderful!
