Claudia + Pete :: Mission San Luis Wedding Tallahassee, FL Wedding Photographer ::

Hey everyone! Molly here!
Claudia and Peter were our last couple of 2016, and oh my gosh how blessed we were to have them end our year. When I arrived, I was getting to know Pete and he said “you know why we chose you guys, right?” and I said “no. Why?” and he told me it was the way we captured emotion. Y’all. Guys never say that. They might think it, but they don’t say it out loud. That is our main goal . To tell a story- your story. So that made my heart burst. Then I met Claudia and she was pretty much a gorgeous ray of sunshine. One thing is for sure; Pete will never have to guess how Claudia is feeling, because she is one of the most expressive people ever. AND I LOVE IT! Anyway, I’ll stop gushing over these two and get to the photos.

 The crowning is the ceremony’s focal point. The crowns are signs of the glory and honor with which God crowns the couple and are joined by a ribbon which symbolizes the unity of the couple before God. The priest blesses the bride and groom, then places the crowns on their heads. The koumbaro then steps behind the couple and interchanges the crowns three times as a witness to the sealing of the union.

After you get married, there is this strange rush of emotion that happens. Like you’ve just taken a really deep breath and haven’t been able to let it out for months. And then the emotion catches up with you- the realization that you’re actually married- and this has all been worth it. I love to capture this moment when I can.
