I’m going to parallel Jaimie and Vaughn’s love story with my own reactions to the now infamous Beyonce pregnancy announcement photograph that was posted on Instagram this week. When I first saw the image, I didn’t think I liked it. So I went about my business, not really thinking about it too much anymore. And then it popped up in my feed again and I took a second look. I looked a little closer and started to see a depth and complexity I had not previously noticed. Then I spent some time researching the artist, getting to know his body of work, and viewing the image in the context of his works as a whole. And after spending a little bit of time in reflection, studying the image (and myself), I discovered that I really like it. In fact, I might even love it!
And so it was with Jaime and Vaughn. They met, had a date, and both decided, eh, I’ll pass. But, it was fated for them. And at the coaxing of a mutual friend, they went on a second date. And much like my reaction to the photograph, upon further study, they both saw things in each other that resonated, that made sense, that felt…right. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say I think you know the rest of this story since, after all, I am a wedding photographer!
Jaimie and Vaughn had their celebration with a Young’s Vineyard Wedding in the heart of Gold Country. It was a beautiful day full of love, devotion, and heart. Jaime is so gorgeous, so reserved, so….reflective and demure. And Vaughn, well he’s equally complex, just like that work of art I described above. It was so humbling to document their love, their vulnerability, their resolve to create a life together that honored their families, God, and each other. And just like that image, I expect the LOVE button to hit new records for these two!
