This is the final wedding (in photographs) from a 2017 that has been so very sweet. And what a way to end this year’s events!
Jake swears that he fell for Megan when he was five years old. She was his “Wendy Peppercorn”, his friend’s older sister (she was 7 at the time). But life’s stories aren’t always as linear as we might think that they are.
So we fast forward a couple decades. Both have gone their own ways, into college, and out again; and into careers. Both have a child.
And then a surprise reconnection. Dating. Commitment. Seeing their family grow as a result. And doing all of this while living four hours apart via highway. Let that sink in for a second. Four hours apart while parenting two kids, planning a wedding, and growing through engagement. It hurts my head to think about that logistically!
So I’m amazed by these two and how love for them is very much not just a warm fuzzy feeling. It has meant commitment, work, sacrifice, long hours on the road/phone/facetime. And because of that, I’m excited to share these two with you: Megan, Jake, as well as their beautiful children and a sliver of the moments that happened on the day that they became a family of four. It felt, once again, like I was on sacred ground in many of these moments, what an amazing honor. Oh, and there were tears, friends. So many.
