Wuv, Tru Wuv...

"Mawage, Mawage is wot bwings us togeder tooday."

" Mawage, dat bwessed awangment,"

" dat dweam wifin a dweam..."

" And wuv, tru wuv, will fowow you foweva..."

 "So tweasure your wuv."
And then Prince Humperdink says..."Skip to the end."

" Have you the wing?
And do you, Pwincess Buwwercup..."

 and the Prince again... "Man and wife. Say man and wife."

"Man an' wife!"

Courtney and Skyler, true loves! And this was their wedding day. Marriage, that blessed arrangement that dream within a dream perfectly orchestrated, brought us all together on this day.

Over the years the sisters of the groom have had a lot to say about the girls their brother Skyler dated. But Courtney is exactly what Shara and Carrie were hoping for in a sister-in-law.

 It seems that this brother and sister... Max and Lola were feeling the love today too.

But a daddy and his girl...there is nothing like this love! Watch out Ryan...before you turn around this gorgeous baby redhead will meet her true love.

 But for's Daddy!

Kari, you will not find a sweeter mother of the groom. And she has finally married off her last child.

My brother, and the father of the groom. Another one of his offspring has found their soul mate...this must explain the happy expression on his face.

I had lots of time to photograph the little ones while waiting for the bride and groom to join us.

It is so much fun to photograph the little ones...they giggle and  frolic about, making merry wherever they go.

Lola Grace....I finally found the catch lights in those deep brown eyes. I've been trying for months to capture her eyes.

 But the shot of her toddler feet are pretty sweet too.

Khloe discovered ants crawling across the marble steps and stopped playing immediately to observe them.

 A Mother's love...knows no end. It even reaches into the heavens...this I know!

And finally the happy couple emerge...triumphant grins across their newlywed faces.

Many members of the family would tease Skyler about being single at "his age." Something about being a menace? .

As for me, I never worried. I just knew he hadn't found the right one yet...the one that would make a smile dance across his face like this.

Courtney...she's the right one! The incredibly beautiful right one.

It's mostly all about the bride on this know that, right? Maybe it's a little bit about the groom too...but mostly the bride.

Oh and her gown...a simple beaded bodice with ruffles and more ruffles. Did I say how much I loved the ruffles!
 And her smile...intoxicating.

And the Courtney.

The first time I met Courtney I fell in love with her, as did the rest of the family. I just knew she would be perfect for Skyler.

Skyler adores everything about Courtney you can tell...look at his hand placed softly in the small of his bride's back. Just the right amount of touch to say... I'm right behind you while you soak up this moment in time with your sister and your girlfriends.

 And soak it up she did...her smile seems endless doesn't it?

Today a new family was established...Courtney and Skyler.

If Courtney's mom has her way, they'll be increasing that family soon, as she certainly has been dropping more than a few hints.

Probably my favorite shot of the day. Her hair...amazing! His look into her face...absolute adoration and complete ignorance of the paparazzi in front of them.

The Garlick Press couldn't be more ecstatic for the marriage of Skyler and Courtney. They found true love and are perfect for each other...just perfect!

And may they live happily ever after...
