I am an American Visionary Museum Wedding addict. Having shot at AVAM before, I knew Laura and Kristin’s wedding would have that fun flair that creeps into every wedding held at the museum. They planned their wedding with being relaxed in mind; they got ready together and we headed off to do couple shots with plenty of time. So we explored and got so many fun couple shots I was trying not to give myself a high five. And then, the museum garden flooded with guests for a pre-ceremony hour of cocktails and fun. As the sun completely set, Shabbat was over and it was time to have the ceremony. Kristin and Laura worked closely with a lighting company to have dramatic ceremony photos that would look great at night. But Kristin and Laura didn’t have an easy wedding day. The strength of their amazing relationship was showcased to all present as Laura helped Kristin through the wedding day. Despite the frustration of a chronic illness rearing it’s ugly head. Despite the night ending in a trip to the ER and hospitalization. And everyone there knew that on that day, the day of celebrating their commitment, they were also living that commitment through it’s hardest trials.
