The White Room | St. Augustine, FL
Surrounded by their dear friends and family, Hannah and Jeff prepared to declare their love for each other with handwritten vows. They had the attention of everyone in the room. Friends who had known them through the ages and family members who had a front row seat to watch their selfless relationship unfold over the last several years.
As the officiant wrapped up the note Hannah wrote so carefully and tenderly to express her deep and sincere love for her husband-to-be, Jeff took a deep breath. It was his turn to share, in front of the people who were already wiping tears from their eyes, all the reasons he loved Hannah.
The woman he would love and cherish for the rest of his life.
But when it was his turn to speak, he couldn’t find the words. He could only look at Hannah, the woman who would be his wife in just a few more seconds, with tears in his eyes and step forward to embrace her.
How could he put something so pure, so real, and so genuine into words?
Needless to say, as they stood there savoring this sweet moment with arms wrapped around each other, there was not a single dry eye in the room (including the photographer).
Hannah and Jeff, your love for each other runs deeper than words—and anyone who spends more than a few minutes with you can see it. You have a selfless love for one another that inspires storybook romances around the world. It’s such a rare and beautiful thing, and I can’t begin to tell you how lucky I feel to not only know you, but to have been there to witness you commit yourselves to a lifelong marriage.
From your first kiss (and all the not-so-sneaky kisses that followed!) as husband and wife to the cutting of the colorful funfetti wedding cake, your wedding day was magical. We absolutely adore you both and know your lives will be all the richer now that you’re together forever!
