After a sweet ceremony we headed to the garden to do some family formals, and those two kids were absolute champs! It's a lot to ask a 10 and 6 year old to please stand here and keep up your best smile, and they did with little complaint.
Stephen is clearly an attentive dad, and it was so heartwarming to see Emily's ease and appreciation of her new, official family. She is total mom material and made those kids feel included at every step of the way, not because she had to or should, but because she just doesn't see it any other way. From the getting ready to the family dance at the reception, family was at the forefront on this day. It was an honor to witness and photograph, and I just know many happy days are ahead for this crew.
