Anna and Josh. Two adorable people that met while working at UAB hospital. You can tell their souls are set on loving and serving each other and everyone they come into contact with. I absolutely loved their meeting story. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy hearing how each of our couples meet and fall in love. Each couple’s meeting and dating story is unique and shows so much character about the relationship. I love how Anna put it in her email, “We crossed paths on the trauma unit …. I got to teach him how to pack gun shot wounds, and later he conveniently dropped a tray of food in the hallway right after I complimented him on his waitor skills.” Now that I know these two, there’s really no better way they could have met.
I’m pretty sure everyone’s favorite part of the day was the first look. I know, I know…we were the only ones that got to be there for it. But after looking at these photos, how could you not just love it? Y’all. Josh was crying BEFORE he saw his bride. He was so overcome with love and excitement and anticipation for that moment. He was ready to see his love. What an absolute joy to be there to capture it. Josh, I dub you the “first look of the year.” #justsayin
Y’all enjoy this intimate garden wedding. These two most certainly enjoyed every moment!
