It had been such a long time since Sydney and I had spoken (way back in college - which is longer than it feels!), so I was thrilled when her email came my way telling me she was engaged to a wonderful man named Jamie. I met them for their engagement session in Yorktown and immediately saw how good they are together, and how much they make each other laugh. Sydney was the same as I remembered, and Jamie is the perfect fit for her fun and joyful personality.
On the day of their wedding, nothing was different. Sydney was relaxed and carefree, and Jamie even let loose a little on the dance floor by the end of the night. Yet at the same time, everything changed - they were dressed beautifully, she carried an incredible bouquet, and they were surrounded by almost all of the people who they love most in life as they finally became husband and wife. Their beautiful winter wedding at the Historic Post Office is one for the books, and I could relive it over and over again.
Truly, their wedding day is what dreams are made of. There was not a hint of stress - but there were countless beautiful details! Everything went smoothly, but what mattered most to them was the marriage itself. The pale blue bridesmaid dresses contrasted perfectly with the men’s navy suits, and all the deep red reception details were the perfect way to wrap up the Christmas season. These two could not have asked for a more wonderful way to celebrate the beginning of their marriage.
Jamie and Sydney, we are both so thankful we could be there to celebrate the start of your next adventure together. It is inspiring to see two people so perfectly suited for each other, and your wedding was a blast from start to finish. I hope that, as you spend the next 60+ years together, you look back at the start of your marriage and know that the best was only yet to come.
