Celebrate: Jennifer + Tom

My California roots were itching today, as this special couple comes all the way from right outside my home town!  California girl meets boy from the South.  Love finds a second chance sometimes, and for these two well-matched lovebirds, today was the day.  A few of my favorites moments were these …

  1. We had a true family table – bride, groom, and three kids in the round, just like at home over a family style service meal (if only all our home cooking was as good as Chef & I!)
  2. When the bride said “I don’t know if I’ve ever felt this loved, but today, I believe it” (tear…).
  3. When the groom excused his poor dancing skills, yet still performed his practiced box steps with such precision – only a Dr. could look so focused!
  4. Lastly, when four girls, including the bride’s daughter, performed a very special dance to “Love Shack”!  It was the perfect party starter!

It was the most perfect, first day of spring. And the perfect first day, to unite this family.
