Joseph & Twila

Apr 10, 2020

Drive-In Wedding | Riverdale, California

It is very safe to say that Twila and Joseph’s wedding was very memorable wedding!! Not one that I will ever forget. Who would have ever predicted that the modern day USA would go thru a world wide pandemic? I know these two sweethearts were so troubled of what to do. Do we postpone their life together for the party with our family and friends, or do we start life together as planned even amidst these crazy times?

Somewhere amidst this decision came the idea of a Drive-In Wedding where family and friends could see Twila and Joseph get married movie style on the big screen!! So cool!!!!

Their love story is almost like a romantic movie on the Big Screen. Having known each other for years Joseph one day, out of the blue, let Twila know he was interested. Twila had some reservations at first. But Joseph was sweetly persistent. Joseph had always been quiet, soft spoken and maybe a little shy but He was everything Twila had ever wanted in a spouse.  Joseph won Twila’s heart over a million times until every reservation was completely gone.

What a sweet day, filled with love and surprises! With the new “flatten the curve” orders, no one was sure how many friends and family would come to this evening wedding. Even my eyes it was huge once we left the church to see the parking lot filled with sweet people honking to congratulate the new husband and wife! It was an honor to capture their amazing love story!
