I love this gorgeous girl. I've known her parents since 1995 when our oldest children were babies. I watched Jaylene as a little girl at times when her mom was in school and working, and if I had to work, my daughter would go to their house. My own family photo archives has many pictures of Jaylene playing alongside my daughter at the park, or at birthday parties, or other outings we went on. Jaylene has grown into a sweet, beautiful woman and it says a lot about Zach that they chose eachother - he is a GREAT guy.
I usually fall in love with my brides and grooms, but this wedding was a little different. It felt like I was photographing my daughter's wedding. There was an extra layer of love like a cherry on top of a sundae at this wedding. I watched her grow up! I felt highly privileged to be the one to document her day. It was a very 'circle of life' experience for me seeing her marry the man of her dreams and also seeing my good friends as the parents of the bride. It was a beautiful day and I wish them nothing but the happiest life together. :-)
