Emily finished reading her letter aloud and as we were both regaining our composure and wiping tears from our cheeks she said “Can I read the 2nd paragraph again? I got a little choked up.” “ABSOLUTELY,” I replied, “but you must know I’m DEFINITELY using this take.” She thought it was funny. But seriously Emily, I used the first take. While I’ll never feel those unique wedding “jitters” again, now multiple years on the other side of marriage, I get to remember it every time I share in that quiet contemplative space between bride suite and aisle and let me tell you…it’s amazing.
Having met each other at Princeton, it’s no shock Emily & Juan are two of the brightest people Kaleb and I have ever met. They’re kind, eager to know you and the type of couple we’d want to spend a lazy Saturday with, drinking a few brews and enjoying many laughs. Their wedding day was emotional, joyous, and celebratory. This edit came together so easily and was such a joy for us because the many group texts leading up to their wedding day and after. It was honestly a bit sad when we finally sent their film, but know our friendship will continue.
