It takes a certain kind of couple to put tears in the eyes of almost ALL of the family and friends surrounding them on their wedding day. A couple that inspires. A couple that shows the world what friendship meets romance looks like. One that start to adapt the SAME smiles and grins because they’re so connected, and they have the kind of love a lot of people will never come close to experiencing.

Jessica and Gary are the couple that defines triumph, strength and friendship. A man that looks at his wife like THIS during a first look…that’s love. The way they flirt endlessly and they take on the world together. I love them for the sweet couple they are and everything they have meant to me over the past couple of years. Today was the day we ALL waited for, and if you think rain, wind and some storms can shake a wedding day down– you don’t know these two. The weather meant nothing, and when you see the images you’ll see how much it didn’t matter. If anything, it was just another storm for them to walk proudly and confidently through hand in hand, like they will until they are old and gray 🙂

Thank you two for being who you are to the core, genuine and sweet and loving! I am SO glad we have been riding this roller coaster of life together!! 🙂 ENJOY!!! 🙂

Thank you to the following amazing vendors for being a part of this day! Ashley Link of V.A. Photography second shot for me and took good care of baby and I! LOVE HER! 🙂
