Meredith & Ben: A Metro East Summer Wedding / by Bolla Photo

“A wedding is a wedding…they’re all the same.” I have heard that from others so many times. To a certain extent, it’s true. Two people get married with the same typical flow of events as any other wedding. But one of the things I love the most about being a wedding photographer is getting to see how each and every wedding is different, whether it’s just some of the “little things” or extra special touches that are full of meaning.

One of the special touches at Meredith and Ben’s wedding was the music.  Ben’s sister (one of the bridesmaids) sang during the procession and again later in the ceremony. And let me tell you, she has a positively beautiful voice! (Bailey, we wish you all the best as you continue your studies at Peabody Conservatory!)

How absolutely adorable are these two?!!

Congratulations again, Meredith & Ben!
