Sasha and Josée | Two Brides + Lots of Love with Moment.us Photography
I'm not sure that weddings get much better than double the brides and double the love. We are beyond honored to share this sessions from Moment.us Photography. Here's what she had to say:
I’m not sure that people get more real or sincere than these girls. From the minute they showed up at the door for our initial consultation session, I knew that we were going to have a unforgettable time together.
Sasha and Josée are two ebullient, energetic, effusive characters who welcome you with open arms and drag you along on an adventure that, once it's over, leaves you shaking your head while laughing and wondering what just happened. They have honest laughter and give seriously great hugs – as you’ll see, since their wedding day was overflowing with both.
We met up with Sasha at a spot in town to do portraits with her girls and her mom - plus an added bit of cannon riding, since that's a must on your wedding day. We then headed off to Josée’s parents’ place on a small island outside of town, where we spent some time enjoying the river backdrop during Josée’s portraits. Their first look was right on the dock and led the girls into some natural, candid portraits and some wine right by the river. One of the many touching personal elements to this wedding was that many of the bridesmaids had been friends since they were four years old. It was easy to see just how much Sash and Jo mean to the rest of the girls - there was no trouble getting smiles from anyone while they enjoyed one another’s company and celebrated the two soon-to-be-wives. I loved that the bridesmaids got to walk down the aisle in pairs, clutching one another’s hands. It was such a small gesture that gave me a little glimpse into their childhood selves: an inseparable gaggle of girls who loved one another fiercely.
There were some really touching details that stood out for me on this day. Josée’s Dad greeted Sasha with such a huge huge and so much laughter that it felt like I was watching him greet a daughter who’d been missing for years. There were seven grandparents present; Sash and Jo decided to forego traditional portraits with them and instead wanted to focus on having a bit of time with each, so getting candid portraits was a priority. YES, PLEASE. Forget the guests – even the judge was crying before the girls made it all the way down the aisle. I lost count of how many times Jo was heard crying, "I love my life!” throughout the day, but the repetition of her mini-anthem never grew tired. You can’t help but get caught up in that kind of tsunami of enthusiasm. They had incredible canapés served during the evening and Jo's dad made sure her dress was protected by bringing along her bib (apron, maybe, since she’s now an adult?) that she’s been using since childhood.
After speeches that highlighted just how important these two ladies are to those who love them, we dashed out to catch the last rays of sun from the top of a parking garage and then dashed back inside in time to bust a move on the dance floor with their rockin' DJ and their fun-loving guests. There were so many personal touches, fine details, and open displays of affection on this day, but the energy on the dance floor was the icing on the cake.
