Samantha and Justin had an absolutely beautiful wedding! The theme was 50's Elegance, which was complimented nicely by white and lace. It was a very timeless theme that will never go out of style because it's so classy. Their Engagement session was also vintage themed, and was so much fun as well. They grew up listening to a lot of classic oldies that helped inspire the theme, such as The Drifters and The Temptations, and both still love the genre. A lot of this music was played at the wedding. I absolutely loved it since I grew up hearing my own father play a lot of that music. I even had a CD of The Drifters when I was a kid.
The two have known each other since they were just 11 years old, and their parents would try to set them up together even as kids. At the time, Justin had a crush on Samantha but she was not as interested as he was. They attended each other's birthdays for the next few years, and would always cut the cake together. As life changes, they grew apart for a few years. Fairly recently, they randomly came back into each other's lives by chance and they have been together since. The cake cutting at their wedding was even more symbolic for them, since it's something they used to do. During speeches, it was so beautiful to hear the way Justin talks about Samantha; you can tell he loves her truly.
Congratulations again, Samantha and Justin! I wish you both a lifetime of happiness, love, and laughter. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your wedding. I had an amazing time capturing it along with my second shooter.
