Meredith & Josh {Hillcrest Covenant Church Wedding Photography}

The day has finally come.  I have run out of Smiths.  From the day I first met Emily, I fell in love with this sweet family.  They honored and trusted me to photograph all three of their daughter’s weddings and the joke was that if older brother Josh didn’t find a bride that would let me photograph his wedding too, they would have to call the whole thing off.  Lucky for me (and Josh too) he found his perfect fit.  Meredith and Josh were meant for each other.  Despite a long distance relationship these two grew their romance over crossword puzzles and flights back and forth.  Meredith is the perfect compliment for Josh and the entire Smith clan.  Their wedding day was a sweet combination of all of things most important in their life.  Enjoy!

From our bride, Meredith:

Favorite Moment of the Day: It’s hard to pick just one. The best man consoling the ring bearer just before going down the aisle after the rings flew off the Bible and went rolling on the floor…. coming in from the crazy heat outside…. 7:44pm when we were pronounced husband and wife! … having so many friends and family from near and far there to celebrate with us! … having to circle back to the church after we “left” because we had forgotten to take our wine from our toast in our bag for the hotel

Serious best moment of the day was having everyone pray over us before and during our ceremony. 

Inspiration for the wedding: simple, elegant, “us” 

Advice to brides planning in the future: Decide what really matters to you and don’t worry about the rest. We planned our wedding in five months.  It was great to work with so many friends and see it all come together so beautifully. 

Thank you to my second shooter, Mike Tsai.
