The longer I’ve been married, the more of a sap I become…and the more and more I photograph weddings, the more I wonder if I’ll ever get through one without getting all weepy.
Aaron’s dad gave a toast. All about how his son told him one day that he wanted to be a teacher. And dad said that’s not a good idea son, there is no money in that. Try something else. But Aaron said no, I’m going to do it anyways. And Aaron became an amazing teacher. He met Julie because he’s a teacher. And just over a week ago they got married up in Jerome.
Dad finished his toast by telling his son that he had been wrong. Not only was he crazy proud of the man he had become…he also knew if he hadn’t followed his dream, then he probably never would have met Julie.
Yeah, that got to me. Tears in the ol’ eyes.
Julie and Aaron are such an amazing couple and I couldn’t possibly be happier for them. They picked the beautiful Surgeon’s House B&B up in Jerome for the venue, and it was so rad. The owner’s name is Andrea and she’s pretty selective about who she allows to get married at her place. So you knew she saw the same thing I did with these guys. A fantastic, intimate little space…highly recommend it.
Huge thanks to Aaron and Julie for being so much fun, re-introducing me to Jerome and for inviting me to capture their big day!
And of course, thank you to my cohort Jeff Ambrose for joining me, and sleeping for most of the drive up there. I totally did not take a picture of him sleeping and post it on Twitter. Okay, I did.[audio:http://www.mikeolbinski.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/07-Melody-Of-You.mp3|loop=yes]
