Carly and Al – Bay 7 Wedding –



Carly and Al’s wedding.  Hard to put into words, that’s for sure.  But, I’ll try.  πŸ™‚
Carly and Al’s friends refer to them as the “power couple” – many times through the weekend I heard reference to the fact that they could “take over the world”.  If they did, in fact, take over the world, it would certainly be a better place to live.  (Actually, the odds of them taking over the world are in their favor, given the fact that Al works for Google and Carly works for Apple.  Not to mention that they have a thriving photography business together based out of San Francisco. :)))) ).  As Geoff and I drove home from that evening, we took a few minutes to reflect on the day, as well as them as people.  They both have such servant’s hearts; always putting others ahead of themselves.  They are just really good people.  The kind of people you hope your children will grow up to be like.  
And their friends and family?  The best.  First of all, the bridal party had such GREAT attitudes….especially as they no doubt sweated through bridal party picture time out in the sweltering heat.  Not one person complained.  Secondly, everyone was so darn caring…we were constantly being checked in on by everyone – asking if we were okay and if we needed anything.  When we went to leave the reception, we seriously felt like we had 30 friends to say goodbye to.  
Geoff and I are always praying that God would bring us the right people to photograph – “right” could be for many reasons.  This wedding – Carly and Al – were unquestionably brought to us to bless us and to inspire us….inspire us to love those in our lives more and better.

    Cheyenne & Geoff, I cannot thank you enough for capturing our wedding day so perfectly. As a wedding photographer, my wedding day is a day that I always dreamed of, and I never imagined it being captured so beautifully. We, too, feel like we made lifelong friends with you guys during this process and I couldn’t have imagined having anyone else by our sides during this special time. I love the moments, the details, I love the way you captured our personalities and our love. Thank you for all of the love and time you put into these gorgeous photographs for us. We look forward to a lifelong friendship with you two, as we know God placed you in our lives so purposefully — and we are grateful. Miss you guys already! With all of our love and joy πŸ™‚
