Jessica is very close to me and my family – she’s been like an adopted sister for ten years. When she met Stephen at medical school a couple years ago, we loved him immediately and started secretly hoping that he would be "the one." They were perfect together – they understood each other’s sense of humor, they loved doing the same things, and they both wanted to be medical missionaries in South America.
Jess vowed that first year that she would never marry him, that she was sure he would marry a wonderful woman…but it wouldn’t be her. We kept hoping, though. After a while we started hearing more and more "Stephen stories" about all the crazy fun adventures they’d had together. It took some time, but Jess finally fell in love with Stephen (he’d been in love with her all along) and they got married on June 16th. Jess asked my sister and I to be there when she got ready, and asked that I have my camera out at that time. It was such an honor, and I’m so glad we were there! It was perfect, from the gorgeous sunrise to the beautiful ceremony to the reception.
Congratulations you two!
