Some things are just meant to be.
On August 26th 2017, Patrick Minnick and Maria Tillar officially tied the knot and I feel incredibly lucky that I got to be a part of it. These two have known each other almost their entire lives and this day seems to have been almost inevitable. They dated as far back as middle school and they only grew closer the longer time went by.
When my family moved to Richmond a few years back we became friends with Patricks sister and eventually her entire family. When they asked me to be part of the wedding I was so looking forward to it because I knew so many of them already. The fact that I knew all the little ones who would be part of this special day and most of the grooms family made for a very relaxed environment all day long. Whether it was shooting the dress, the rings, the bridal party or all the cute kiddos all dressed up it seemed to be the perfect day. The ceremony was beautiful, the bride and groom were beaming all day and the reception was incredible.
I also wanted to say thank you to the other photographer I got to work with for this special event, Kevin Hurley. He is very close friends with the grooms father and I appreciate the opportunity to help him with a wedding that obviously meant a lot to him personally.
I believe Patrick and Maria were meant to be and I ended up being able to help them with their special day. Cheers to Mr. and Mrs. Minnick and the marriage that was always meant to be. May you live happily ever after.
