A Lakeside Wedding

by Meghan MacAskill

Anna smiles a special smile when she talks about Nick. A smile full all the memories of the years they have shared, the times they held fast to each other during the rough patches, and love for the man who helped her reach for her dreams. They’ve had good times, and hard times, but through it all they always came back to each other more in love than ever before.

In the end, they chose to be together. They chose to love one another. In July, on the shore of Lake Almanor, they chose to love each other for the rest of their lives. They promised forever. Amidst the sound of the water, the smell of pine in the air, and the sunlight filtering through the trees, they sealed that promise with a kiss.

It was a beautiful day. One I was honored to take part in. Anna and Nick, thank you for inviting me into your life to capture the love you share. I feel so blessed to have been a part of it.

Some of my favorites…

I’ll end with one of the first dance that makes me smile every time I look at it. It says it all.
