If you've spent any time around here, you know there's two things I prize above all else on a wedding day: deep love and authentic emotion. Julia & Noah's wedding had both in spades.

It helps that they'd been together a long time before getting married. High school sweethearts get intertwined in each other's lives and families in a unique way, and they often get to build love not just between themselves, but between their families and their extended friend groups as well. The depths of these bonds are so clear among Julia & Noah's loved ones: their moms hugging after the ceremony, photos with friends' parents, their ceremony officiated by a best friend who's also a brother-in-law, toasts by both the Best Man and Matron of Honor talking about the genesis of Julia & Noah's relationship and the role in it of just about every guest present.

I also don't know that I've ever seen such an honestly, disarmingly affectionate group of guys as Noah's groomsmen and their other guests. Sweet heartfelt hugs passed around liberally, dances and dips...it's "boys will be boys" in its best sense: They'll be loving and true and truly present for their friends. Noah could not have exemplified the authentic love more: He wept to see Julia sweeping down the stairs in her incredible cape veil; he wept to see her coming up the aisle; he wept (and she wept) exchanging vows and rings, during their first dance, during their private last dance...his no-holds-barred emotion melted my heart.

These two are incredibly sweet and deserve every possible happiness that a lifetime of marriage can bring them. I'm honored to have been able to capture their delightful day—check out a selection of my favorites below, and send them all the good vibes for years of joy together!

P.S. Extra special thanks to my ever-awesome friend Jessica Berkowitz for second-shooting this day with me!
