He was incredibly nervous, as he slowly stepped up, and walked towards the microphone to give his wedding speech. He had been thumb-twiddling about it most of the day because public speaking was something he dreaded with a fire, but he got up that day, because she meant everything to him, and he knew this was something important to her.
"I. Love. You" he mouthed silently to her..."I. Love. You. Too" she quietly whispered back in a hushed tone, while her eyes spoke of depths of love and confidence for her man. And so he continued with his prepared words, recounting words of thanks, holding back tears of gratitude for his parents who had given him so very much, and reminiscing with shy embarrassment their love story to every eye and ear in that crowd.
They had come a long way. For two people that began their history together by hating each other and then parting ways for many years, they had come a very long way. However a little spoonful of chance, and technology in the form of the internet brought these two lovers back together. You see, one fine day, for no apparent reason at all, Jenni decided to search for Gun on google, and had just so happened to find his details in the returned results. We all laughed a little at the fact that Gun had even let his details appear on the internet in the age we live in, but that is the magic of fate and serendipity. It sometimes works in your favour. And in Jenni and Gun's case - it allowed for the seeds of their love story to plant, then grow, and then blossom.
While it rained almost the entire day on their wedding, it didn't dampen what was being truly celebrated that afternoon - how much they loved one another, and how incredibly overjoyed they were to be able to look forward to the rest of their lives together.
Enjoy my faves from the day! It really was an amazingly sweet, emotion-filled wedding that really left some footprints on my heart. Adding to the fabulousness that day, was the pleasure of working alongside the uber-talented Papercranes Production team who did the video on the day :)
I love brides with fabulous taste! Truly adored the Amsale designer gown that Jenni chose for her big day! :D
