When we greeted Philip at the side entrance to Media City Church he was a bit nervous and quite excited. Anastasia was in a similar disposition as her four sisters and mother helped her into her dress & shoes. It wasn’t until we were on the way to Brand Park for portraits that Anastasia exclaimed that it had simply been too long since she had seen Philip–and that after their first look, her nerves would calm and all would be right with the world again. And nothing was further from the truth.
Rarely do you find a couple so sweet. We noticed how Anastasia & Philip seem to savor small moments in life, finding meaning and joy in the little things. This could be seen in all of the personal touches of their wedding–in the way Anastasia asked her sisters and mother to be the ones to clip her necklace and tie her sash, in a large batch of homemade cupcakes baked by one of Anastasia’s bridesmaids, in the fun table signs that detailed Anastasia & Philip’s life happenings… like the number of times they have been to Disneyland or flown on an airplane together. But most of all you could see Anastasia & Philip savoring moments throughout their wedding day–as she held his face during their first look, in the way he hugged her, inhaling her scent, in the way they sobbed and laughed together throughout the ceremony.
Anastasia & Philip–simply put, thank you! We hope you’re soaking in every moment on your east coast honeymoon…and may you always find joy in life’s little moments–together. :) –A&N
