{ Hannah & Alex PART 2: the vows}

It's hard to describe how it felt seeing Hannah and Alex, two old Oak Hills kids, reunite under the familiar old oak tree at the heart of our neighborhood. What I loved most about the ceremony was how natural the entire thing felt. They were both there under the tree to greet guests as they arrived, bikers went past, kids' soccer games played on, and as the time drew near for the ceremony to begin, the bride shouted at the crowd, "Are we missing anybody?!" The vows that Hannah and Alex wrote were spoken by a dear friend John, and told as though reading an old storybook tale... of two neighborhood kids brought together by the stars and the trees and the friends and family who love them most.

Congratulations to my gorgeous sister and brand spankin' new brother in law

Kelty... I feel a twinge of sadness knowing I couldn't be there. My alternate wedding was about as traditional as it got. All things are meant to be. Photos are awesome. Hannah looked awesome. You are awesome! Can't wait to see you!

Your color treatment is simply amazing. Who knew that a photographer could make such masterful use of hue and shading? Hats off to both you and the beautiful bride.
