Weddings. They make us look forward to hanging out with friends, seeing a beautiful couple devote themselves to one another in traditional or creative ceremonial attire and of course the shenanigans we can get ourselves into!
There are many adorable stories of beautiful weddings from across the land and this is another one out there!
The beautiful work of photographer Jamieson Dean is simply a fantastic portrayal of a special day along with the story behind this wedding by the bride herself.
"My absolute favorite highlights of our wedding can be summed up in a few "D" words: dog, dress, decor, and disability."
…"Finally, our focus on disability was a highlight for me. You can't hide the fact that my husband spends most of his waking hours in his giant electric wheelchair
(he has cerebral palsy), so we didn't hide it — we celebrated it. We matched the wheelchair to our wedding colors, we took an accessible bus to the wedding, our food was finger food (which is easier for Tim to eat), and our cake was cake pops (also easier for Tim). We drank wine out of straws, and we even included Sign Language Interpreters in our ceremony. We celebrated disability and difference in all its forms." - Read the full story written by the bride and see all the fantastic photos - http://offbeatbride.com
After reading her recount of the wedding, how she made her dress and the celebration details, I felt as if I were there. Almost brought a tear to my eye! And a funny taste of tequila in my mouth. Why oh why do I always start with the tequila at weddings? Hmm.
Congrats Natalie and Tim!
