The laughter coming from Nellie’s dressing room was rising as I walked up the stairs of her parent’s home. Amongst the sea of eleven bridesmaids, grandmothers and mothers there was Nellie. She greeted me with her usual wide eyed smile, then she held her hand to me. It was shaking. Her nerves had gotten the best of her in that moment, because she realized that today was the day. The day that true love made a promise.

For those of you who don’t believe in true love, then you should arrange a time to meet Nellie and Chetley. Their story is close to my heart, because I too met the love of my life in high school.  Nellie and Chetley grew up on farms just a few miles away from each other. We met at Chetley’s family farm for their engagement session last spring. They first met in high school and little did they know that in just ten short years they would be man and wife.

Nellie and Chetley, I said it on your wedding day, but I will say it again. You two are beautiful and being a part of you and your family’s day was magical. It is days like yours and people like you that make me love my job. Thank you for the gift of being in your lives. I feel truly honored to help capture these moments for you. Have a wonderful time on your honeymoon and I can not wait to share the rest of your day’s photos with you! All my love, Jaime.
