The start of Amber and I’s wedding season was with this joyful couple, Jacqueline and Dominic.
This wedding was extra special to us as Amber just photographed Jacqueline’s sister’s, Anna’s wedding back in Ocotber 2019.
Not only did we get to see the entire Filardo family again, we got to meet the Greenlee’s… and let me know tell you what, they are fun bunch of people to be around. Amber swears she got ina full ab workout just hangingout with Dominic and his family all afternoon. Let’s just say, they know how to have fun and include everyone around them to have just as much fun.
Not only did Amber and I have a great time meeting the new side of the family, we also got to witness some very touching moments that are not always seen.
Earlier this year, Jacquline’s dad had a health scare and put everyone on edge. I never knew what happened but I knew it was a scary time for their entire family. When watching that daddy daughter first look on the wedding day it brought so many tears to my eyes. I was so happy to see him there, happy as ever, and rejoiceful that his daughter was getting married and he was there to witness it.
This wedding was such a great way to start off the season and also put some perpective back into our minds.
Life is short. Enjoy the moments with the ones you have now. You never know how long you have them for.
