Teale and Joey

Teale is one amazing woman. This wedding was evidence of one of the strongest, greatest loves I have witnessed thus far in this career of mine…

Shortly after Teale and Joey’s official ceremony in January, Teale’s mother passed away. She was terminally diagnosed. She had been fighting breast cancer for several years (as I understand), but this final stretch, the doctor’s gave her a handful of months, if that. June was the original wedding date, but Teale and Joey made the decision to have a tiny ceremony in January so her mother could see her in white and watch her marry the man of her dreams.

This wedding was the celebration of THEIR lives and their future together, but there were so many moments throughout this day where Germaine was present and saying her piece. Teale’s family (both her blood and her incredible new in-laws) showered them with love. But what brings tears to my eyes every damn time I look at these images are the way Teale and Joey look at each other, hold each other, move with one another. They are truly like magnets.

Here is evidence of their incredible love, through my eyes:

Where it all began…

This was Germaine telling us hello. Teale’s grandmother had suggested spritzing the flowers with a scent, but didn’t have anything in particular she wanted to use. One of Teale’s friends and bridesmaids, Autumn, pulled this scent out of her purse and said it was one of her favorites. It was the same scent Teale’s mother wore.
