I am so excited to share Jake and Crystal’s wedding with all of you! Today is Crystal’s birthday so I knew today would be the best day to share. 😉
I’m not sure where to begin with this post. Crystal and I worked together for two years and I had the privilege of getting to teach her sweet daughter when she was in kindergarten.
During the year that I taught Alyssa, I learned about Crystal’s heartbreaking loss. She is one of the strongest women that I know and the pain and heartache she went through is gut wrenching. As the year went on we began talking more and I really got to know her. He is so sweet, kind, and funny and is the best mom to her three kiddos.
During that year she mentioned to me that she met a guy, Jake, at her son’s baseball game. I, of course, wanted to know all of the details! She begins telling me how amazing he is and how he loved the kids so much already.
I was so excited for her and I could tell he was the one for her by the huge smile on her face…EVERY day! The joy she had was contagious and I think everyone at our school knew she had found the one that she was going to marry.
Jake proposed to Crystal and they were ready to tie the knot! Crystal contacted me about capturing their wedding and I was so excited about it!
I only met jake one time before the wedding so I didn’t completely know his personality yet. The day of the wedding he was so excited to marry his best friend. I remember asking him if he was nervous and he responded “No, I’m just ready!”. He couldn’t wait to see his bride.
Once they officially said “I do” I got to witness their love first hand. They are absolutely a picture perfect couple and were so adorable together all night.
Crystal and Jake, thank you so much for trusting me as your wedding photographer. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness! Love you guys!
