When Laura opened her wedding day letter from Jeffrey, on the front it said “you are my person” and that perfectly sums up their relationship. You see, Jeffrey can be quiet and reserved, but he livens up with confidence when Laura is around. And Laura can equally make you laugh and command a room with her strong personality. Yet when Jeffrey is by her side, she becomes softer and less stressed. They both influence one another to be a better person and in that way they can say to each other “You are my person.”
Through out their wedding day, at the Peabody Hotel, we saw this dynamic play out. Jeffrey was stoically soaking in what the day meant as he was getting ready. You could tell with each passing moment with his groomsmen and dad that the anticipation was building. They were all joking around, having a good time, of course! But underneath it all he was growing more impatient waiting to see Laura.
Laura, though dealt with this impatience in her own way – singing and dancing with her girls! The room was full of music, laughter, and fun. Her mom enjoying as much as anyone! As it progressed – hair, make up, opening gifts from Jeffrey and friends, putting on the dress with her mom and best friend buttoning her in – the anxious giddiness slowly started to show itself.
And then these two met. When they saw each other they lit up and everything started to fall into place.
Our favorite part of the day was probably the Bedekken and Ketubah ceremony. It is such an intimate time with family and close friends. We find this is when the most emotions are usually seen – maybe not felt – but visibly seen. That’s because they are surrounded by people they love dearly. Simply put, they are totally comfortable there. From the parent’s blessing them to their nieces and nephews giving them faces, it was such a sweet time to document for them. This time flowed seamlessly to their ceremony.
By this time of the day, Laura and Jeffrey were ready to party! These two and their guest filled up the ballroom as they danced the night away in married bliss! All of the day’s emotions melted away as they just enjoyed one another and their friends and family. It was beautiful way to end the day!
Laura and Jeffrey, we have grown to really adore you two! We cannot wait to see the next chapter in your life as you both found your person to do it with!
