j + v // may 7th, 2016
i don't always cry at weddings. okay, maybe i do... but i usually don't cry multiple times at the same wedding. but when jason (the strong, centered man i have grown to love and respect over the years) broke down i couldn't help myself.
this day was full of special moments, but my favorite was a private gift exchange right before the ceremony. jason and val met outside the church hidden from one another around the corner of the building. fighting back the tears they read the letters aloud and thats when i lost it. i realized just how much these two people mean to each other, how much they depend on one another, and how committed they are to becoming a family. as they held hands around that corner professing their promises, there was a love that exuded out of them that i don't think my camera captured, but i felt it.
thanks for always being an inspiration jason. i wish nothing but the best for you and val. based off the love and support you have for one another i know you are going to be incredible parents. i am thankful that our lives ran parallel for all these years and i am excited to see where this new road takes you. i hope that as the ink fades on the paper of those letters, your love only grows stronger.
here are a few images from your wedding day. i hope these make you smile.
