…look deeper through the telescope and do not be afraid when the stars collide towards the darkness, because sometimes the most beautiful things begin in chaos.

I think it is only fitting for this blog post to go up the week of Thanksgiving because this wedding truly left me with an overwhelming sense of gratitude. As many of you may know from an earlier blog post I made public last month, my grandfather passed away, right in the middle of my busiest month of the year. Life is funny sometimes, because as I was dealing with my first grandparent’s passing, I was also preparing for a double header weekend, the funeral falling on Melissa and Ryan’s big day. This is where the gratitude part comes in. Not only was Melissa the most sympathetic and understanding bride, but I was also sent an angel to take my place, but most of you know him as Daniel Moyer. No questions asked, he generously cleared his afternoon to tag team with my amazing second shooter, Allison, to cover the first half of the wedding while I attended the funeral in New York before arriving to shoot the ceremony and reception. And wouldn’t you know the day went off without a hitch. Great weather, great couple, great party. The universe is nuts like that. So much good can come out of a crazy situation, and in the end you find out it all fell into place just the way it was meant to.
