two words for you… nervous and nervous! matt and jessica were both nervous wrecks when trish and i met up with them separately the morning of their wedding. jessica was both holding her breath and slightly hyperventilating. matt was so nervous he lost his ring and forgot the marriage license. i was a little worried someone might pass out, but everyone managed to stay upright. once they met at the alter, it was like all of those nerves washed away. they were so sweet and so foucused on each other during their vows that i had to fight back the tears. the real gut wrench-er though was the letter written by matt to jessica, read by the priest during the homily. i’m pretty sure that there was never a more tender description of a quiet moment shared between two people in love. matt told a little story about jessica sacrificing a dinner at restaurant they had been wanting to go to so that he could watch a world series game. the way he told the story was so touching, and then his promise to spend the rest of his life making up for that lost date was enough to send all the ladies in the church rummaging for their hankies. matt you are a true catch! jessica and her mom planned such a beautiful event it was a real pleasure to capture all the details. jessica’s dress is monique lhullier and her shoes are kate spade. the flowers were done by stoneblossom. jessica’s makeup was expertly applied by amy from new leaf salon.
