first loves | by ashley

The first people in our lives to love us unconditionally are our parents and grandparents. They’re committed to us through thick and thin. Family relationships are some one of the strongest bonds we will ever experience. That is why I love this picture. Many times when brides and grooms are running to their car while being pelted with birdseed or bathed in bubbles, their main goal is to GET TO THE CAR! The bride and groom in this picture stopped before they got to the car and made sure they said good-bye to their first loves – their parents and grandparents. It is the unplanned, unexpected, heartfelt moments that really stand out and tell a story.
