When she opened the cabin door to greet me, it was with a squeal of excitement and a big hug. How many people get to say that their clients hug them, before they've even taken a single picture? This is why I love Cailee, and her now husband Jim.
Overwhelming emotion ruled the day that they'd waited for so long to arrive. I watched Cailee's Instagram feed countdown throughout the year, so I knew how much finally being married means to them.
And from humor to tears, the ceremony was so perfectly "them." I can't lie, every time I see a man wear his emotions on his sleeve, I tear up a little. They way she reached to him, the way he looked at her....sigh, sometimes (ok, a lot of the time) my job is pretty magical.
They love with every inch of themselves, and it showed every minute of the day. Through hugs, tears, laughter, speeches and dances - they loved. And not only each other, but every person in the room at Ventosa Vineyards that day, and in their lives together. They live and they love out loud, through good and bad.
I'm just happy that on this day, they took us along for the ride.
