I feel in many ways that this wedding was the end of an era. Something amazingly special that I can say I was a part of. This wedding was elegant, beautiful, and touching – but that isn’t what I am talking about. Sam is the youngest of four brothers. Four Somers boys that everyone knows and loves. This was the last of their weddings. The final brother said “i do” and I got to be there for all 4 of those moments. All four of those weddings. Four Somers boys and their amazingly beautiful women. To say I am honored is an understatement. This family has become to special to me. I couldn’t be more happy to know them.
Jessica and Sam’s day was originally planned for the end of March. Everything was on schedule until the Tuesday before when the Governor shut everything down.. Days away – they were only DAYS away… and it all stopped. Everything was finalized – all plans made and execution had begun in some cases. It all had to be moved. It came close to happening again when the their was an announcement to be made -again – the tuesday before their wedding. Thankfully the governor kept us open – and for all their sakes, I was so so thankful.
IT was supposed to rain that day, too. I was prepared with clear umbrellas and a plan… but to my complete gratitude to the Man upstairs – we never got a single drop. It was a beautiful day. Hot – but beautiful. The guys were drenched at the end of the night.
Jessica was stunning. One of the most beautiful brides ever. Matched one by her kindness – she took everyones breath away. Sam teared up, her mom teared up, I teared up – pretty much the norm 😉
I know it’s not the end with these guys – with any of them. They are all right here and families are already starting with the other brothers. I am grateful I can keep these friendships alive! I am thankful I can see them all time and talk to them. I am happy I can hug all their necks and take their family photos year after year!
Thank you Jessica and Sam – Thank you Somers Family. It was truly my honor!! <3 <3
