Justin and Briana’s Arden Hills wedding is something that I’ve been looking forward to for a long time. You see, my Grandfather passed away this year and December was his wedding anniversary. So it was wonderful to be able to celebrate with Justin and Briana and their family, the beginning of their marriage and in a way, the end of his. And I know that these two are destined for the same wedding bliss my own grandparents had for over 50 years. Theirs is a story of two best friends, whose relationship blossomed into true love. I can see it in their eyes; I can see it in the eyes of their parents as well. And I hope when you look at these images you see it as well.
Justin comes from a long line of law enforcement…his father, his grandfather, and now officially, him (congratulations on the job in LA Justin). It takes a very special person to serve in those kinds of jobs and I appreciate everything they do for us. Civil service in general is not always a thankful job, but knowing that people like Justin and his family are the ones out there protecting us, caring for us, and walking the line for us gives me a great deal of comfort.
And Briana, well all you have to do is look at her and you know exactly why Justin fell in love. Once smile from this girl and I don’t care who you are, I dare you to not fall in love with her.
And yes, they are both just as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. Justin and Briana, you two will hold a very special place in my heart forever for far too many reasons to list in this blog post. And Briana, please tell your father I am sorry again for almost making him cry (I know he was working really hard all day to keep it in). I couldn’t help the emotion I felt watching him dance with his daughter on her wedding day. It was pure magic.
