“Where there is love, there is no darkness.”
-Burundi Proverb

Shaina and Anthony are a glowing example of this beautiful proverb and it was never more apparent than on their wedding day. Friends and family gathered on the orchard hill at Indian Ladder Farms on a warm and beautiful afternoon to celebrate, having traveled from all over the country to attend.

I was blown away by how genuinely Kelly and Matt care about not only each other, but everyone else in their lives and even the new people that they have just met (which was clearly shown to me in how many times they tried to get to me eat some food and by making sure I received a piece of their wedding cake).
