What a day, and what a couple. Everything was so joyful and so beautiful.
As I have said before, Jordan and I went to the same high school. We met in driving school, and then I had one of the best high school summers hanging out with her. To me, she was popular. She was SO COOL. I was so happy to be friends with someone so fun and lively.
Jordan and I grew apart as people do as they get older. So, when she contacted me about taking her engagement and wedding photos, I was so ecstatic!
I met Patrick at their engagement session, and he was a delight. Down-to-earth, fun, and he keeps a smile on Jordan's face. Jordan and Patrick have a very real, fun, and passionate love for one another - which excites a photographer because that always makes for natural, beautiful, loving photos. Then I found out Jordan was going to wear her grandmother and mother's wedding dress at her wedding, and my excitement went through the roof! I mean, HOW AMAZING IS THAT??
When my second shooter, Cassidy, and I arrived for this wedding, everyone was in such great spirits. Jordan was getting ready, Patrick was hanging out and having laughs with his buddies, and any family already there were filled with joy and great to be around - again, making my job so easy, and so fulfilling.
I was so happy to be a part of this day, and I am so incredibly happy for Jordan and Patrick.
Congratulations, sweet people!
