Everyone has their story and that's what makes them beautiful and unique. You learn so much about people through your interactions with them, but you learn even more when you listen to what other people have to say about them and see their interactions with their family and friends.
Last night I learned so much about Heather and Jim that I could've never learned without having the honor of being with them for the biggest day of their lives as a couple. The speeches, my gosh I learned SO much and felt like I knew them so much better. Then there was the video tribute to Heather's father and if you were there, you know how much love was in that room. I cannot even explain the emotion that I felt myself, and I'm just the photographer and not a lifelong friend. I had to wipe my eyes so I could see clearly to take pictures. The doting friends, dedicated family members, sweet kids, it all made sense.
There's so much more to love about Heather and Jim because of their journey to become Heather and Jim. Life is certainly not easy, but if you have your best friend at your side, the journey is a lot better. I'm so happy these two have each other and cannot wait to see what the future holds for them.
Congratulations, Heather and Jim!
