She stood there, tucked tightly against the white brick wall. His navy blue suit tucked just as tightly against the wall, only inches around the corner from her. They wanted to save the first time they saw each other that day until they stood at the alter… but they still wanted a moment, just the two of them, before it all began. Justin had the absolute biggest grin on his face as they found each other’s hands. They smiled and talked for a while and then decided to each say a prayer. They each shared a sweet prayer but tears came streaming down Jaca’s face as she listened to the words that her soon to be husband spoke about their day. It was unforgettable. Finally, they parted ways to join again each other again soon at the alter.
As the ceremony began, the sun tucked behind the clouds and decorated the sky the most beautiful shades of dusty gray. A blanket of shade fell upon friends and family while a strong breeze came in from the river. Music started playing and everyone awaited Jaca’s entrance, but she never came. Instead, there was a burnt orange boat that made it’s way down the canal. As it grew closer everyone quickly realized that Jaca’s “walk” down the aisle was actually more of a magical boat ride down the canal. She sat at the bow of the boat.. wedding dress pooled around her, loosely pinned curls blowing in the breeze, and her daddy’s loving hand upon her all the way.
Eventually the boat docked; Jaca and her father stepped out of the boat and made their way down the aisle. He gave his daughter’s hand in front of a white gazebo draped in linen and fresh flowers. She and Justin exchanged a couple of tears, hand written-vows and their first kiss as husband and wife!!! It was the perfect wedding day filled with so much emotion and southern romance. The clouds even rolled away just long enough to give us dreamy sunset light and then the night ended with the most beautiful sparkler fountain exit.
Justin and Jaca, thank you so much for trusting me with your special memories! It was an honor to watch one of the most beautiful chapters of your love story unfold. I wish you many more years of love and happiness 💕
