Every couple has a story. A background. A starting point. For Jessica and Matthew it begins with Matthew absolutely beating all odds to even make it to this day and continues all the way to the joy of father giving Jessica away. I have been lucky enough to be able to watch from a distant (mostly) for well over a year as Jessica and Matthew kept moving to their wedding day. Between the meetings, shooting their engagement session, seeing Jessica at a minimum of 5 different bridal shows, meeting her family, meeting their friends and finding out just how many people know both of them…. it has been a whirlwind. Yet in between photographs at their wedding, when I was scanning the pews of the church, I could not help notice just how many people were wholly captivated for their ceremony. I guess I was not the only one who seemed to know just how special this moment was for both of them. That was the first moment I realized how special of day it was going to be. The 2nd was the moment the open dance started at the reception and IMMEDIATELY the dance floor was packed and then how it just stayed that way through the night.
Jessica and Matt, enjoy your honeymoon! I will not tell you to savor this moment, I think you will do that just perfectly. Instead I will just off my humble gratitude for letting me a part of your day.
