The Anchorage Port Stephens was the setting for Sue & Julie’s magnificent wedding day. Sue married long time love Julie ‘over the rainbow’ in front of adoring friends and family while a dolphin splashed in the background. That really happened. Because somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.
Already together for 25 years, Sue and Julie had long waited for the chance to marry and finally laws in Australia have made that possible. It’s an incredible gift to be in my position at the begining of legalized same sex marriages – I feel so lucky to witness the love between some very special couples who have waited so long simply to marry each other. In this case, Sue and Julie’s vow making comes at a poignant time in their lives as Julie has just been diagnosed with Alzheimers Disease and their moments and memories together are particularly precious. This made for an extremely emotional day for everyone involved, and yet again I was very grateful to be able to hide my teary eyes behind my camera.
Thank you so much Sue & Julie – It was a magical, emotional occasion and I was so thrilled to be able to capture your day.
As a side note, I uploaded this song to my site over six months ago and completely forgot about it. It was just waiting for your wedding Sue and Julie!
