This love story is about second chances, life is what happens when you are busy making other plans and learning to dance in the rain (literally). Shari has an almost teenage daughter Sadie. John and Shari met and through time fell in love. Shari said she never thought she would marry again until she met John. Judging only by how I saw them look at each other, interact and how easy it was to capture their glowing affection for each other, I would have to say that she definitely got it right this time. During the intimate ceremony, John gave a necklace to Sadie to show his commitment and love for her in his new role. She was so thankful and as most in the room, emotional. People say it’s good luck to have rain on your wedding day. Some brides literally think it’s the end of the world and brides like Shari? Well, they have experienced life, love and loss and learned to embrace the rain and just dance in it. Shari and John will be dancing through life together.
On the day of the wedding, I had never laid eyes on the bride, Shari. I know that I have the ability to get people warmed up and trusting in a short period of time so it didn’t concern me as much as it did her 🙂 . Either way she trusted me with one of the most important days of her life and I was going to make sure I captured every moment of it! Another bride, gave Bob and I a gift of talk around radios that really came in handy! They were amaze! Bob was down 4 floors and I could talk to him!
At the reception there was an adorable cake topper with a bride and groom in a boat. They love to go boating together. When it was time for the garter, John said to me “well I guess I am going to go fishing”. It was sweet and fitting giving this couple’s love for the water.
Congrats Shari John and Sadie! May you always look back and remember the magic that happened on May 18, 2018.
