These two souls. Where do I even begin?
After leaving JT and Kayla’s double weekend wedding ceremony and reception, I went home and thought about my life. I looked at old pictures. I felt nostalgic, my heart ached and I wanted to be better connected. All of a sudden I missed everyone. I thought “How can I make my relationships better?” I actually called my brother and told him we need to start spending more time together. Because of them we now have a weekly hangout.
It is because the bond that these two people have with everyone around them makes you envy their universe. They are not just surrounded by friends and family. They actually KNOW them. They love the people in their lives with every single bone in their bodies.
I can honestly say that because of this two beautiful events I am a better person.
The two days I spent with them was eye opening. I met them in Plymouth Massachusetts for an intimate ceremony. The day was pretty much perfect. We got to work with the very talented and awesome Brighter Lights Media team. We also had the honor of hanging out in Plymouth afterwards with them for a bit. (Frank is better at dunking a basketball than JT.) They were so welcoming and lovely. Especially their families!
Their reception was the weekend follwing on Sacandaga Lake. Another perfect day. It almost isn’t fair…the weather they had on not one but two special days. JT and Kayla planned a viewing of their ceremony video since it had taken place the weekend before with only their closest family and friends. Even though I was at the ceremony I still got teary watching the video. I think the entire tent was sniffling. I have attached it at the end of the images. You’ll want to see this beautiful piece of art. It is truly touching.
I have learned a lot from JT and Kayla’s relationships and can only hope that my closest loved ones think of me in half the way theirs do.
In my eyes both days are a representation of their life together and days to come. Their really is no beginning or end.
Just love and a WHOLE lot of it.
My heart is bigger because of these two.

The Brighter Lights Media Associate team was a little spoiled with how wonderful of a wedding celebration John & Kayla held. They rented a private beach house for the weekend and had only a small wedding with roughly 20 guests to share in the intimate experience. Their officiant did a great job of sharing how he viewed John & Kayla, and what they meant to him, as well as each other.
