Every wedding is special to us, and this one was certainly no exception! I first met Jen about five years ago when my husband and I went out to visit his brother, Jeremy. They had only been dating a few months at the time, but we all had a ton of fun together. They are such a cute couple, and really balance each other out perfectly. When it came to wedding planning, Jen was the organized one with the highlighters and lists galore, and Jeremy was there to infuse some fun and playfulness into the affair. Jen was welcomed into our family with open arms.
For their wedding, they did things their own way, as I hope every couple will do. They wrote their own heartfelt vows, married in a beautiful garden setting and threw a party in an opera house. Everything was within a few blocks of the home they share together. Family came in from all over the country, and made a week out of the celebration.
We did a beautiful, stress free first look with them, and got to play all around the gardens. Looking back, I think this was one of the most relaxed weddings of this size I have ever seen. Not much for tradition, they skipped the cake cutting and just set desserts out. From hanging with the guys at lunch, to a dance floor that was packed all night, it was a truly wonderful day.
Jen, all of your color coordinated sticky notes and binders were worth it! Welcome to the family, and thanks for letting us be part of your amazingly special day! Much love to you both.
