From the photographer: Some may say my relationship with Destiny & Tim is a “non-traditional” one. Usually, couples know their photographer either from their engagement session or months in advance leading up their big day. Two days before Destiny & Tim were going to say “I DO”, their photographer had to cancel. Destiny reached out to me from a recommendation and the rest is history. Destiny was so happy to find me as she had been trying to pinpoint her exact ideal style, but couldn’t find the words. Once she found me and saw my rustic, romantic style, she said everything clicked! That was the exact style she wanted. Within two days, we made all the arrangements. Before I knew it, I was at The Black Bass Hotel walking up to the bridal sweet to meet Destiny for the first time. I instantly connected with her, Tim, and their families. There was a transparent love between everyone and my heart melted as I watched Destiny and Tim eagerly wait for permission to kiss their new partner for life. After five years of knowing each other, I would be eager as well. They said their vows outside on a surprisingly warm November Sunday (Nov 8th, 2020 to be exact).

The arch they got married under had warm floral accents. If you thought it couldn’t be cuter, their son Max was the ring bearer. After the wonderful ceremony with live music, everyone moved to the historic outdoor patio. Under charming string lights and next to the Delaware River, they had their first dance. They were the “can’t keep their hands off each other, giggly with joy” kind of couple. Then Tim danced with this mother with a smile lasting every second as “Simple Man” by Shinedown played and his mother sang the lyrics to him. Traditionally, the bride would dance with their father next. Unfortunately, Destiny’s father was unable to physically attend the wedding due to medical reasons. Destiny’s father has pancreatic cancer. Nevertheless, the band played their song as Tim held Destiny. In all honesty, I myself cried during this emotional time. Nevertheless Destiny’s dad was able to be present throughout the wedding as he gave a beautiful speech over the phone at the reception. Destiny and her sisters made sure to face-time him while getting ready and throughout reception so they could share moments together.
