Amaris Hames of Amaris Photo is someone whose work I deeply admire, and I was thrilled to get to work with her on this beautiful wedding at Gatherings of Dorchester! Chris is SO in love with his “pretty girl” and new wife. I think he must have said “you’re such a pretty girl, you’re so beautiful at least five hundred times on their wedding day. Gabrielle couldn’t have been more thrilled to be married to her sweet new husband and couldn’t stop exclaiming, “I’m a wife now!” The joy was contagious, and even though it was forty degrees and raining, we couldn’t have been in warmer spirits if we tried.
Chris’s reaction to seeing his bride for the first time is one of my favorites of all time. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen someone quite so delighted by the sight of the one they love, but he was just overjoyed every single time he looked at her from the first look on. Gabrielle pretty much never stopped laughing the whole day. Just wait until you see how excited they were walking back up the aisle as newlyweds! If you don’t start to reflexively smile just looking at their happiness, something might be wrong. I swear it’s impossible not to feel their happiness through the screen, just like I couldn’t help but be wrapped up in it behind the camera!
