Maybe it's the way they love their fur-babies or maybe it's the true love that you can just feel from being with them, but I knew from the second we had our initial video chat call that Miranda and Brad were two very special people!
When they started describing their wedding vision to me, I was so excited! Private home, farm, dogs, rustic....yes please! From their engagement session, to their wedding and everything in between, I feel so lucky to have gotten to know them, their super cute doggies and their amazing friends and family.
Speaking of dogs, Miranda and Brad met while walking their dogs while they both lived down in Florida. I'm a huge believer in fate and it seems like they were meant to be. Since then, they have added another lovable pup into their lives, making them a family or 5 :) Brad's job moved him to NJ and they found this beautiful home in Clinton. There is this enormous gorgeous tree on their land that they knew they just had to get married in front of!
All couples pray for beautiful weather for their wedding, but couples who plan a full outdoor wedding reallllllly cross their fingers, toes, and eyeballs that they don't have bad weather. Well...unfortunately for us, we know how the story goes. Mother Nature has no favorites and does what she wants. This October in the northeast has been a doozy! Just 3 days prior, it was sunny and 80 degrees..3 days later...the temperature plummeted to about a max of 48, the sky opened up and decided to dump a ton of rain along with 40+ mph winds. I was quite nervous to see how Miranda and Brad were going to take it!
I've never seen a couples love shine through the storm, literally like theirs did. They handled it with such grace. After all, the most important part about the day is not the weather, but the fact that you get to marry your soul mate and that was clearly what inspired them throughout the storm. And hey, we even got a few dry minutes to work with!
Congrats again Miranda and Brad! I wish you all the happiness as you continue your journey!
