Brad & Rhea | A Calgary Starbelly Wedding

Rhea & Brad's story is one of my favourites. 

They both worked together and when Brad met Rhea for the first time it was like an electric shock went through his body, he thought, "Wow!" Rhea on the other hand didn't exactly have the same reaction... no magical moment, no immediate attraction. So they grew to be really great friends and work buddies. As their friendship grew, Rhea began to fall for Brad and eventually their love it was more like a small flame that received a gust of wind and set fire to EVERYTHING. Oh man that is SO cheesy but its seriously the truth!!! No other way for me to describe the incredible passion these two have after 9 years including making a family.

After our engagement session I remember driving home to Landon thinking, WOW, I want that in 9 years. I want the kindness, the silliness, the passion, the deep LOVE, I want all of that, it was so inspiring. It's beautiful that their children get to witness that type of love. 

The wedding day was in essence ALL OF THAT, I kept  blinking back tears through their ceremony and laughing. They are a beautiful couple, a beautiful family, they have a strong foundation of friendship and patience, but most of all a well of love. I am so grateful that I got to capture it all! 

Congratulations Brad & Rhea!!

not knowing how blind that was.

They are in each other all along."  - RUMI
