“She used to say she was the and I was the line. She was a create of the clouds and I was a create of the earth. And she’d say that without me she’d become untethered and she would float away up into the sky And then without her, I would just, you know, crash, just drop right to the ground. …. It’s a beautiful way to be. You know, look, we weren’t perfect but we were always kind. We loved each other hard. And I love her today just as much as I did in the beginning. The kite and the line.” Hugh Crain – The Haunting of Hill House
I know, I thought the same thing… a quote from a horror show??? But when you take a step back and read the words anyone who knows John and Liz will understand why they relate to the quote so much. Liz is the kite and John is the line. Liz loves to adventure and take him with her while John keeps her grounded when they need to be. Without each other, they wouldn’t be what they are together.
John and Liz had a beautiful wedding day. With a forecast of rain, we knew there was a chance that Liz wouldn’t get her snowy winter outdoor wedding photos. But to our surprise, the rain stopped before we took pictures and didn’t begin again until we were finished. When we finished with John and Liz’s portraits, Liz stopped and said, ‘I couldn’t be happier. This is absolutely perfect’.
John and Liz, thank you for allowing me to photograph your wedding day. You are such a fun, loving couple and I am so happy you can officially call each other husband and wife!
