real life: among the aspens

This is the celebration of what starting a marriage looks like. This is the stuff that gives me goosebumps and makes me smile.

It's pure. It's not about the design. It's not about the centerpieces. It's not about the shoes. It's not about the open bar. (I keep having to remind myself of this - but when I see these simple, true, and honest marriage celebrations, I am rejuvenated... and the mess and clutter of traditional wedding hype melt away. I know I write about flowers, and centerpieces and my dress...but I also know that it's just fluff...but fluff just the same.)

Weddings are about families joining. New lives forming. Commitments being proclaimed.

And sweet sweet love.

I admire this wedding, that took place among the quaking aspens on a cold crisp autumn day in Flagstaff. Beautifully captured by Cameron & Kelly Studios.
