I waited at the airfield watching skydivers sail down into the landing zone next to me. Far off in the distance a shuttle approached the landing zone full of people bobbing up and down along the dirt road.
As it got closer I was able to make out Will in his blue suit and his soon to be wife Siobhan with flowy curly blond hair peering out of the shuttle. On Will’s face was a mix of nerves and excitement. This was the first time he had been skydiving.
Will and Siobhan decided to take a literal plunge into their adventure of marriage. They started by skydiving into the landing zone where their family and friends were waiting below. They then changed out of their jumpsuits and walked over to the ceremony site nearby to say their I do’s.
Siobhan who had skydived before was so excited for Will to be able to share this experience. As they touched down into the landing zone and walked over to each other their joy and excitement was contagious.
So many loving hands went into creating their special day from both their family and group of friends. As they got set up with their jumpsuits their family started to build the archway that they would stand under.
As they flew up into the sky ready for their jump, Will’s best man led a practice run with everyone of what was to be their song walking down the aisle, here comes the bride, by way of a chorus of kazoos.
Erin, one of Siobhan’s good friends and bridesmaids took care of their cake and a couple of their friends who run a food truck took care of the catering. It was beautiful to see everyone pitch in to help bring the day together and help celebrate their love story.
The grandparents even had a extra special task with their grandma acting as the flower girl. The day was full of joy and fun twists on the traditional marriage ceremony.
Will & Siobhan, thanks for trusting me to capture this special day for you guys. This has been one of the most unique weddings I’ve been part of. You guys poured a lot of love and thought into the day and really made it your own. You two are a beautiful couple, thanks for including me in the celebration of this new chapter in your lives!
