You might remember Molly and Bill from our amazing engagement session last December! A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of shooting Molly and Bill’s wedding. Bill is the associate pastor at First Presbyterian Church of Granada Hills, which you might recognize from the weddings of Karen and Dan and Rachelle and AJ. Molly and Bill had a huge turnout at their wedding – 400 or so guests! Every person we talked to had nothing but wonderful things to say about this couple.
Molly and Bill’s love for one another is a tangible thing; you can feel it in the way they look at each other and hold each other. Bill got teary-eyed when Molly walked down the aisle, and their first kiss was met with a standing ovation. During a memorable toast, Molly’s friend and old roommate talked about their courtship. Bill wooed Molly in the way every woman should be wooed, her friend said. She made everyone laugh by saying that Molly had a type of tourette’s during the first stages of their relationship – randomly shouting out, “I love Bill!”
After the toasts and a sweet first dance, the party continued. The DJ had the girls vogue’ing to Madonna and the guys strutting their stuff. The community showed their support with each family bringing a wedding cake for the couple. They cut into a three tiered cake made by a church member and her granddaughter. To show their respect for the community that had supported them through their relationship, the garter and toss bouquet were presented to the pastor and his wife. The whole wedding was filled with personal touches and you could feel what a close knit community Molly and Bill bring together.
