Our Wedding Story part 3: our portraits

Walking out to see Jamie for the first time on the day of our wedding, I became completely overwhelmed with emotions.  I had been so busy finishing up the flowers, setting up the ceremony and reception and then getting ready, that I had not had a chance to fully just stop and take in the fact that this was actually my own wedding.

Jamie was worried throughout all of the planning that I would be so busy and stressed the day of our wedding, or too drained and tired to really enjoy being a groom.  I remember Jamie telling me she would be devastated if that happened.  So, as I walked to see her the first time, feeling frazzled and overwhelmed with emotion, I began to panic and worry that Jamie’s worst fears for our wedding day had come true.

But as I heard the crinoline beneath her dress rustling as she walked closer to me, I started to be at ease.  Then, the second Jamie grabbed my hand and I turned and saw her, my anxiety, fear and stress disappeared, and I was overwhelmed with joy and an indescribable happiness.  This peace came over me, as I knew I was marrying the right person if just the touch of her hand could put me at rest.

This next blog post is our portrait session.  Michele Waite did such an incredible job, especially considering that we were over an hour late, and had a very strict time line.  Thanks Misha for taking such great care of us that day.
