Maggie & Doug

Have you ever met a person that you just love to be around? That is so kind and so thoughtful and such a light? That exude such happiness and laughter that it makes you feel good about yourself? How about when you know more than one of them and they’ve been brought together as a wonderful couple? That folks is Maggie and Doug.  I had the honor of photographing their wedding day and it was nothing but amazing.  The Inn at the Olde Silk Mill was FILLED with guests that felt the exact same way I do.  From their large family, to some long time friends, to their amazingly talented group of theater friends… Without sounding like an Elton John song you could literally…. FEEL THE LOVE that night. (Sorry if the Lion King anthem is in your head now). When I first met with the future Wilder’s, I was in awe of they had up their sleeves. Maggie and Doug put in SO much thought and detail into their big day. I had been excited for months leading up and when the time came it did NOT disappoint. When your career is the theater, you don’t have to look far for people that would help make a large moon for a Photo Booth backdrop, or would hang vintage umbrellas from the ceiling, or would sing at your reception… Do I have your attention now?! I hope you all enjoy this blog post as much as I do! Sara of Wolfcrest Photography was my right hand and did amazing per usual! Maggie and Doug, I wish you nothing but a lifetime of the love, light and laughter you instill in everyone you’re around.  So much love to you both.
