Love in the Details

Nathalia + Amber; Poe Museum Wedding Ceremony

It is the harmony of the diverse parts, their symmetry, their happy balance; in a word it is all that introduces order, all that gives unity, that permits us to see clearly and to comprehend at once both the ensemble and the details.
— Henri Poincare

True love. 

Two words that that can have so many definitions and descriptions. Personally, my helpless romantic side thinks about the last scene in Pride & Prejudice when Mr. Darcy sweetly kisses Mrs. Darcy and repeatedly says between kisses, "Mrs. Darcy, Mrs. Darcy, Mrs. Darcy...". (ridiculously sappy, I know!). But deep down, I know that true love is not a Hollywood movie scene but it is an action, an act of the will and heart.

Nathalia and Amber are my definition of true love. Their relationship began more as close friends and simply enjoying going to the movies together. In time their love started to grow even more.... no Hollywood moment here... they simply shared their daily lives with one another.

Nathalia and Amber's love grew stronger as they imagined their future together. Nathalia would watch Amber play with her nephew and wonder how great it would be to have a family. It was simply the accumulation of beautiful daily details like this one. 

Nathalia said it best, "I knew I wanted her to be my wife by these daily details... until a point that when I thought of her, I believed she's not only the one for me, but the one who makes me better... my better human in life!". 

I love that Nathalia and Amber built their love. Love is an incredible emotional attraction but true love is the willingness to take action and a love that is unconditional! I know that these two have years of happiness ahead of them! Congratulation, again, Nathalia and Amber! Thank you for the honor of documenting your sweet ceremony... can't wait for the reception in Brazil!
