Sarah & Joe – Married

I have tried starting this sentence eighty times without getting teary eyed and it’s just not happening.  This wedding holds a very special place in my heart….these people hold a very special place in my heart.  My sister, my HEART, my best friend got married.  I was honored to stand up next to her (Chris acted as the head photographer while I performed my MOH duties) and the whole day was beautiful.  Both Sarah and Joe have a very close knit family and between the two of them, hundreds of friends that might as well be family.  The entire day, they were surrounded with people who had prayed for them, before they even met.  If you know Sarah, you know how special she is.  We all knew the man who would eventually win her heart was going to have to be very VERY special. Joe has exceeded my expectations and I had some pretty high standards for my little sister. So sit back, relax and enjoy some of my favorites from Sarah & Joe’s wedding – I will never forget this day as long as I live.
