When young love turns to a respectful and caring adult relationship it has to be admired. Not many teen love birds continue their lives together but or Aine and Aaron there was no other way. Having met in school, on this beautiful May morning they would finally be married.
Excitement filled the salon as I arrived, the girls were just finished having their hair and makeup done and were all giggles and smiles. Relaxed and content Aine was quietly awaiting the day to come.
Preparations went without a hitch, sliding into a wonderful tea length gown, surrounded by her nearest and dearest, Aine was the picture of bridal bliss. At the nearby church Aaron, dressed in a blue 3 piece suit, delightfully received his bride as she reached the top of the aisle. The gentle touches and little glances show all that is needed to know, lovingly nodding and gently supporting, for Aine and Aaron there would never be another choice but to spend their lives together.
Guests lined up awaiting their own moment to congratulate the beautiful couple after the ceremony. Tight cuddles and warm smiles show the importance of the occasion for not only the bride and groom but their guests also.
In line with the tea dress, Glenview Hotel was laid out with afternoon tea style, leather bound books and famed authors decorated the tables in detail to suit Aine and Aaron's liestyle.
The sun split the trees as we made our way down the hills, away from the hotel for some unique shots in the rustic grounds of Glenview. Aine had wanted to walk to the stream below and what a brave bride she was, the trip down hill and through grass patches did not deter her, she knew in her mind what she wanted to remind her of this day and nothing would stop her from having it.
I could go through every detail of the day, mention every moment but not one thing would come close enough to describe the insight I was given on this day into the love of Aine and Aaron. It is never in the words that are said, as the song goes, it is more than that, it's in the eyes, in the touch and in the heart and with understated elegance and distinguished respect Aine and Aaron showed, that in every moment, they were meant for each other.
To both of you, I thank you endlessly for having me share your day with you, it is forever a pleasure to witness such an important event and a constant reminder of the purpose of humanity, to love and to be loved.
