Being in my 30’s is not so bad. I love going to weddings and you go to LOTS of them in your 30’s! It’s especially fun when I get to photograph a friend’s wedding. I’ve known the groom since my first year of college. We met in Beginning Acting class and have been friends ever since! I can honestly say that meeting Laura is the BEST thing that ever happened to Jesse. He seriously scored. I could not have designed a more perfect match for that boy. She’s smart, beautiful, loves to travel, and she’s crazy talented (she’s the singer/songwriter who sings the song from my website – to hear more from her album, visit her Facebook Page!) From what I could tell at the wedding, I’m pretty sure most of his family likes her better than him. 😉 One of my absolute favorite parts of the wedding was at the end of the toasts when Jesse and Laura decided to do a toast too! …that doesn’t happen a whole lot at weddings, but I think it should! They took the opportunity to thank everyone for being there and also thanked both sets of parents for being such a great example of loving, committed relationships. I found it very touching since my own parents are still married after 39 years. It definitely not something I take for granted and I know how lucky I am. Clearly Jesse and Laura do too.
Congratulations you crazy kids! Thank you for letting me photograph your wedding. It was truly an honor!Photography assistant: Amy Gray Photography
