At the end of December, I made the journey five hours north with Amanda May to Lexington, KY. Amanda chose me to help her capture one of the most beautiful weddings and endearing families I've ever met. The bride, groom, and most of the wedding party attended college together. Abigail and Ethan (bride and groom) attended high school together, but they never really talked in depth to one another until college. Abigail and Ethan started dating in the fall of their freshman year of college and they never looked back. Ethan's proposal was a complete surprise to Abigail. They were on a cruise during 'formal night' when it was announced they had won a contest. Their prize was a dance by themselves in front of everyone. During the dance, Ethan would tell Abigail how in love with her he was and how he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. It wasn't long before she was sobbing with tears of joy. At the end of the song, Ethan knelt down and asked Abigail to marry him. Of course, she said yes! The best part was that it was a complete surprise and that it was caught on video.
My favorite part of the whole day was that Abigail's father, a preacher, performed the union between Abigail and Ethan.
