JAIME + NATE
This was the wedding I wanted to blog about first, the wedding that changed all weddings for me. Sure, I’d seen a lot of boho, whimsical, dreamy weddings on Pinterest and all over social media, but until you see a wedding like this in person you haven’t really seen anything. Pictures can’t even begin to do it justice, and even my video doesn’t quite get there. Jaime and Nate didn’t call it their “best day ever”, but instead decided to say it was the “best day yet”. Jaime said, “I loved our wedding day so much, it is just the beginning of our amazing life together. I wouldn’t want to go back in time, because I truly believe that each new morning as Nate’s wife is the best day yet!” I don’t even know if I’ll be able to put into words the amount of soul, joy, and faith that was put into this day but I will definitely give it a shot.
I want to go back to the beginning, when I first met Jaime at a coffee shop to discuss her wedding. I can name about 5 people that I have met in my life and I immediately knew there was something different about them. Something about them that just radiates such positivity, and pure joy. I am not close with any of these people but when I think about bettering myself and how I want people to see me I think of these people and how much they impacted me the first time we met. Jaime is one of these people for me. She lit up when she started talking about Nate and the details of their wedding, and not about the simple things like her shoes, or the colors of her bridesmaid’s dresses. She talked about the deep stuff, the parts of the day that were really going to make it a special day between her and Nate. She spent more time talking about him and their future plans together than she did talking about the wedding, which was something I don’t see very often. Meeting her moved me.
