When Courtney and I first met over a year ago, she was bubbling with excitement about her and Prashanth’s wedding day. She was full of exciting ideas and plans, and was well on her way to planning an elegant wedding at Makray Memorial Golf Course in Barrington. Since that initial meeting, I have been patiently waiting for their wedding day to arrive and to see all of the details that came together.
Courtney was a blushing, elegant bride. Prashanth was a handsome, striking groom. Together, they make quite the couple! They are so sweet and loving to each other and their families. Family is so important to them. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, Courtney shared with me that her Dad was in the phases of an early onset of alzheimer’s. She wanted to make sure that I was able to capture moments with him walking her down the aisle, during their father daughter dance and any images of him with the family. As Courtney was escorted by her Dad down the aisle, I think everyone present was holding their breathe and tears were just falling. It was a moment that I know Courtney, Prashanth and their families will cherish for so many years to come…her dad walking her down the aisle, not quite understanding what was going on, but present and there for Courtney. As he gave her away, he looked at her with so much love and you could tell he really didn’t want to let her go! It was the most touching moment I have witnessed at a wedding. He gave her away to such a wonderful man, and as Courtney and Prashanth shared their vows and promised to love each other, they truly meant every word that they would be there for each other in the years to come.
I was so honored to be present at Courtney and Prashanth’s wedding, to capture their day and to witness their love. I am excited for these two as they start married life together!
