Rob and Lauren Wedding [Stones of the Yarra Valley, Coldstream]

Rob and Lauren Stones of the Yarra Valley Wedding (71)

So I am sitting here trying to describe Rob and Lauren’s wedding in this wee little paragraph to accompany their beautiful images and I become stuck. As soon as I try and find the words I am transported to just one moment. This moment occurred well after they had exchanged vows and just before the night was wrapping up. The party was well underway and all their guests were on the dance floor. A commotion of epic dance moves and little mini-moments were happening around them and as I moved in closer to take a quick candid snap of Rob and Lauren sharing a dance together, I saw this little moment occur…

Through my lens I was trained in on Rob and Lauren and I watched them look at each other, I saw Rob smiling from ear to ear but I also noticed the way he looked at Lauren. In this crowded dance floor, it was the look of utter admiration. The words they had said to each other only hours early, the words that attempted to express how much they love each other and thankful they were to have found each other, In that moment, I felt it. I had to take a quick snap and leave the dance floor as I felt tears welling up. It was a moment of pure love that completely hit me and I needed a chance to compose myself before continuing. There is so much else I could say about this wedding; the fact that it was at Stones of the Yarra Valley, one of my most favourite wedding venues, the fact that Lauren and her bridesmaids looked so beautiful, the fact that I had one of my very talented friends along to help shoot (thank you Stina!).

Yes, all of these made for a very excellent day but that moment on the dance floor will always be the first thing I think of when I recall this day.
