Some of my most memorable moments over the past 20 years of photographing weddings have been when the bride's dad shares heartfelt and meaningful words with everyone at the reception. So Sam's dad, Mark, opens his toast/speech with, "When we first met Jason, we didn't like him at all, but in the end, he has become a son and we love him." Mark continued with his speech, at times, pushing out one word at a time, while taking a breath after each word and wrangling back the flood of tears about the spill out. It was a rich, meaningful moment among many.
I also saw a Jeep park on top of another Jeep. On purpose! Seriously.
Sam and Jason, thank you so much. We wish you the best and we look forward to seeing you again. Here are some of our favorite shots from the day. Enjoy.
