Loved. That was clearly the theme of the day. They spent the day displaying their love for one another, for their families, for the friends, and for anyone they came in contact with that day. She smiled and cried, he teared up with passion and adoration for his glowing bride, and all who watched felt empowered by the possibility that forever just might really be possible after seeing these two together. There was a warm-ness. A tenderness. A passion that gleamed through the day, and we were lucky to have been a part of it. We felt like honorary bridesmaid’s and groomsmen. Because not just Jasmine and Donnie, but their families and friends welcomed us in as if to their living rooms instead of a formal event.
Jasmine’s embrace for everyone and Donnie’s welcoming smile and handshake is part of what attracted these two to each other and they are so perfectly complimented. They both are exploding with love, compassion, excitement, spontaneity, and joy. In fact, they are currently driving cross-country to California, but just stopping along the way as they please to enjoy this country and their perfect love for one another. Way to go guys, way to enjoy life to the fullest. We could all take a lesson.
Ummmm….you girls were awesome! Can we please be friends in real life please? Thanks.
People, this right here is why we do first looks. The emotion is unbelievable, raw, sweet, and perfect. And just ask these two….it hardly ruined that trip down the aisle emotion. You’ll still see that there was plenty of that too. These guys were so overcome with excitement and joy to see each other. I was in love and teary-eyed just watching. Just do us a favor….spend the rest of your lives looking at each other this way.
You guys are just two sweet together…it’s almost not fair!
Donnie = Stud
Seriously Jasmine…you are ridiculously gorgeous. Flawless.
See…still so full of emotion. Doing a first look doesn’t change the feelings you have when the music plays and the doors open. It just allows for some special intimate time before all of the busy-ness and craziness of the day happens. A chance to hold each other in your arms, smile, love, and realize it’s your wedding day. This moment is still just as special. These two prove that!
OhMyGosh….so in love with this next series of pics. I love that you can see the true, raw, excitement beaming from these two as they now start their lives as husband and wife. AAAAAHHHHHH! Perfect!
