Jess + Courtney | South Dakota Fall Barn Wedding
You know, I was just telling a wedding planner over the weekend how much I love to be a part of the wedding day. But, not just as the hired help. I want to show up and crack jokes with your groomsmen to get real laughs, I want to ease the groom’s nerves as he awaits the first look of his bride, and I want to get to know the names of your parents. I don’t ever just want to show up, do a job, and go home. I want to know what matters to you and who you love and why you love them. This wedding was full of that.
I have been waiting literally the last year for this wedding because I had so much fun with them at their engagement session last fall! They have such a vibe about them that just radiates happiness and comfort. They have absolutely beautiful, supportive families and the tears they shed were plenty of proof of the love that surrounds Jess + Courtney as they move forward building a family of their own.
To top it off, I ran into Jess’ dad just a week after the wedding and he sincerely thanked me for my work….AHH! I just love these guys and all they represent.
