i met jennie almost two years ago at a bridal show in grand rapids. it is always a humbling moment to have someone ask you to photograph their wedding, especially in such a spontaneous fashion! she walked away from my booth that day with us both planning on a wedding that seemed still a long way off. jay served four tours of duty for his country. it was acknowledged at the reception - his bravery, commitment, dedication, and strength. and as his new father in law raised a glass to honor his service, i watched the eyes of his new bride. no one else in that whole room was more overjoyed to have him home. for good. and now, the tour of duty is no longer on foreign soil, but at home, in dedication to her.
the day finally arrived, and a man who had given his all to his country, stood, promising his life to his beautiful bride. and that girl i met at the bridal show, so many months before, was dressed in white and living her moment, a wedding day that finally came, and came with much splendor.
congratulations j&j - blessings to you both
