What a wedding! What a couple! We met Caroline at a bridal show earlier in the year and I remember thinking… how cool would it be if Elphaba hired us. For those that don’t know who Elphaba, shame on you haha. Just kidding. But really… Elphaba is the lead in the NYC Broadway show Wicked. Our bride Caroline was Elphaba for a few years. Bummer that I didn’t get to see her when I went, I was a year too early! Fast forward a few months after the bridal show, we get an inquiry from this super cute guy named Austin Colby, (yes I stalk all of you who inquire even the guys) and he is also a broadway guy. They wanted to Skype us and soon they would hire us for their Turf Valley Wedding. We were so thrilled when Caroline and Austin hired us as we knew 1) they’d be a great fit personality-wise with us, but 2) their wedding would not only be beautiful but an incredible party to capture.
Caroline and Austin, we feel like we forever have friends. Thanks for trusting us, loving us, including us, and making our job so enjoyable and fun. Your wedding was so fun to photograph and your guests were incredible as well. I think Patrick got butt slapped and I know I went home with a kiss on the cheek from some grandparents. We think the world of you guys. Next time we are in the Big Apple we will be sure to text you and see what grand show we should come find you at. You guys are rockstars… literally! In the words and speech of your brother and sister:
Their story unfolded like a Disney scene, Like Aladdin and Jasmine on a FaceTime screen, She's the lady to his Tramp, The Beauty to his Beast, They're like Simba and Nala, Mrs. Potts and Maurice. Lime a merman, he wanted to be part of her world. And all their friends and family said, "kiss the girl!" You've played Tony, Curly, Evita and a witch, but we're all green with envy watching you two get hitched. Caroline your a heck of a spouse, Austin just remember... she's the master of the house.
This little blurb was part of an incredible speech. Maybe one of my favorites ever. And if this doesn't do it for you, maybe this will. Austin made a music video for Caroline to watch the morning of the wedding. Most these folks were in the wedding but they are also broadway peeps! Go stalk them. You will LOVE it and fall in love with them too. Caroline + Austin, congrats again and enjoy being married. It’s the best!! xo
