High School sweethearts and honestly, the sweetest couple I have ever had the honor of working with! From the moment we met at my home, I instantly clicked with Ravyn and Connor. Our conversation started in full daylight and before I knew it, I was getting up to turn a light on in my dining room because I realized the sun had gone down and it was getting really dark in my house! Time flew by and after they left, I was anxiously daydreaming about how their wedding day would unfold. Needless to say, it was like a real life fairytale and I was so lucky to be a part of it.
These two met at a halloween party. Ravyn was dressed as a cavewoman and Connor was Brad "Parsley" (<<--- amazing). Like Ravyn said, thankfully she likes the color green! These two hit it off that night and have been together ever since. I love that Ravyn and Connor share a passion for so many of the same things. One of them being the outdoors. They love camping, hiking trails, and even identifying trees, plants, birds, and other creatures. They were even doing it on their wedding day! I would be taking a photo and together they got distracted by the type of tree we were standing under... I just love that!
So it was no coincidence that Ravyn and Connor chose Furnace Town as their wedding location. Surrounded by nature, these two said their vows at the base of the furnace ramp. Although I have documented a number of weddings at Furnace Town, I have been patiently waiting for a couple to have their ceremony here as well. Especially in the exact spot they chose! It was truly magical.
Like I mentioned before, Ravyn and Connor share many similarities. But my favorite of them all is their love for God. I remember when I asked Connor and Ravyn what their favorite traits were for each other. They both responded with "His faith" and "Her faith". It gave me goosebumps and honestly, I felt it was one of the most romantic answers I've ever gotten. Before the ceremony, Ravyn and Connor had their first look and during this time they took a moment to stop and pray together. Even on their wedding day, Ravyn and Connor chose to put God first. It was such an intimate and special moment that I was honored to document.
Even with a few heavy showers before the ceremony, everything fell into place. The rain stopped just as Ravyn was coming down the aisle and that was the last of it. Connors reaction, as Ravyn walked towards him through the trees, says it all.
Ravyn and Connor, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your wedding day!! I know that God has an amazing plan for your lives and I can't wait to see where it takes you as husband and wife. I wish you all the best!
