congratulations to michelle + jerry who are currently honeymooning on the sunny beaches of the dominican republic! they were married last weekend at the waugh united methodist church, otherwise known as the runaway bride church! there was no chance of anyone running out on this day – michelle + jerry have a wonderful relationship and i have had the privilege of watching it grow since the very beginning. they are good friends of mine and i was honored to document this very special celebration! two years ago they formed a strong friendship which easily grew into a lasting love and a solid knowledge that this was the real thing – they both quickly realized that they wanted to spend their lives loving each other.
michelle and jerry are extremely kind, incredibly thoughtful people with big hearts. their friends and family adore them and it was easy to feel the love all day long. i was super emotional from the moment i arrived – i couldn’t wait to see michelle + jerry tie the knot! after the beautiful church ceremony everyone proceeded to fiore winery for a lovely afternoon reception. i loved walking through the vineyards with them and watching them tear it up on the dance floor – michelle + jerry you guys rock!
michelle + jerry: i absolutely love you guys! i’m very lucky to count you among my friends and i couldn’t be happier for you both! also a big thanks to jessi who did a fantastic job as usual – notice she’s still loaded down with gear even after the wedding is over!
