She oozes sweetness. He is caring and kind. They gently moved with their day and soaked in all of their moments. Together. They met 9 years ago to the day. They were married at one of my favorite venues. Anna's Vancouver Island Beach House. The sun was shining, the sea was calm. The beach house buzzing with anticipation of a beautiful wedding. Everyone involved, emotional, happy, excited and exactly as they should be on the wedding day of two people they cherish.
Cara and Murray invited me into their moments and shared such genuine moments with me. My favorite part of their wedding? Photographing Cara and Murray getting ready, and hearing Cara's brother signing so beautifully in the sunshine, with the cool breeze carrying his voice through open windows and hearts...
"It's a little bit funny this feeling inside I'm not one of those who can easily hide I don't have much money but boy if I did I'd buy a big house where we both could live
If I was a sculptor, but then again, no Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show I know it's not much but it's the best I can do My gift is my song and this one's for you
And you can tell everybody this is your song It may be quite simple but now that it's done I hope you don't mind I hope you don't mind that I put down in words How wonderful life is while you're in the world
I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song It's for people like you that keep it turned on
So excuse me forgetting but these things I do You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue Anyway the thing is what I really mean Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen." -Elton John
A memory that I will cherish always. Thank you all for being so warm and wonderful and for sharing so much of you, with me. (as a side note... the morning before photographing Cara and Murray's beautiful wedding I came across THIS and therefore couldn't help but smile when the song was being lovingly sung for Cara and Murray. Life.Is.Beautiful.)
