A wedding day is typically about two people coming together. For Jessica & Michael, it is about five people joining. Between them they have three little boys – all very close in age – and already a strong little band of brothers. So, it’s no surprise that these rambunctious balls of energy took center stage for this wedding day, completely killing it on the adorable front, entirely upstaging their parents’ first kiss, and then ruling the dance floor (between breaks in the movie room). Micahel and Jessica wouldn’t have it any other way.
Which is not to say that there wasn’t plenty of romance on this day, because there was. From the tenderly sweet first look, the heartfelt personal vows, the genuine toasts and hilarious thank you speech, and a first dance where the rest of the world fell away – it was clear that here are two people who have found their person, and the crooked road that led them there has made it all the sweeter.

When it rains, it pours. This is true for Rekha & Chris, and for their wedding day. Not in the negative way you might be thinking, but in the way that that statement speaks to abundance. Because abundance is just what Rekha and Chris have in so many areas of their lives. In a loving and caring family, in friends that are true and loyal, in faith, in fun, in memories, in love. On their wedding day, the rain fell steadily and with great volume, just like all these other qualities that surround them. For Rekha & Chris, love is abundant, and married life will be too.

He shook his head and started the car. He cranked up the radio and pointed himself South. He was headed back to Florida, just weeks after he had moved to New York. He laughed a bit to himself. That girl was magnetic. He could feel her pull even from here, thousands of miles away. He had known it the moment he saw her, beaming blue eyes laughing over a can of Miller Lite. He had teased her about her choice in beer, only to find out it was a matter of hometown pride. They had talked all night, then exchanged numbers. Their contact was sporadic over the next few weeks as school finished up for the year, and graduation loomed for him. He thought he caught her wipe away a tear when he said he already had plans to move. He had forced himself to let her go, to drive away, to continue on the path he had started on. But the detour he had been shown bothered him, and he had to go back and explore. And so, he was on his way to Florida, to follow the girl. There was no turning back now, and he knew he would follow her anywhere.
