When I first asked Enrique and Erin about how they met, they told me that they met online. I, like I’m sure many of you, also know plenty of people that have met online. I heard this answer, fully accepted it and went onto my next question. What I later found out, is that their online medium wasn’t Bumble, Match, or any of those mainstream matchmaking sites…it was online video gaming. They met through the game, created a friendship online, which led to a spark of a relationship online, and eventually met in person to stir up that spark into a full relationship. Oh, and did I mention that they didn’t live in the same city, state, or country? He was in Puerto Rico and she was South Carolina, and yet their friendship bloomed into a relationship that so lovingly shines through them and each of their parents. I always find myself mind blown by technology and the way it connects people, but I have never personally been witness to these stories so I found this whole wedding so unique and so wonderful.

The best part about shooting Connor and Emma’s wedding was getting to join in with their family to celebrate them. Connor, being a local, had generations of his family still in the area and Emma came from a large family of siblings. Their family, along with their friends, created this wonderfully diverse mix of all ages and backgrounds. Their wedding was also one of the last times their families would be so close together because Connor and Emma were moving to a new city soon after graduation. This sentiment made the entire rehearsal and wedding day feel particularly loving and sentimental as everyone was excited for the future of the Dixons.

Their families aside, Connor and Emma were and are some of the most loving and funny people around. We have so many moments of excitement and goofiness captured in this wedding and even now looking back at their photos to write this piece, I am reminded once again of Emma’s laugh and Connor’s ability to keep a straight face even in the silliest of actions. I’ll just leave these gems down below to give you a little taste of them as a couple.
