If possible I always prefer a face to face introduction with the couple before the wedding if possible. That’s not always the case, sometimes a phone call or a Facetime will have to do but in the case of Jill and Alex we were able to sit down and have lunch together. I don’t mean this with any bias but immediately they felt like old friends I was catching up with rather than new people I was acquainting myself to. We talked about their relationship for a bit, some more wedding details and then it was mostly joking around. Even the day of the wedding I felt like I was a guest rather than an employee of the day. That’s just who these two are, they are friendly, warm, inviting and really honest people. You can see that honesty in the way they interact with each other, the happiness they had to finally be married to each other after 18 years of knowing each other. I’ll stop yapping but I do want to end with the funniest moment of the luncheon was when Alex excused himself from the table Jill said jokingly to me “yea so I married the bad boy from college.” Love these two!
Cheers to Jill and Alex!
