They stood at the alter.  Together.  He took the microphone.  He held it in his right hand.  His heart racing.  He looked at his bride.  She looked back at him with a smile.  His family watching.  Her family watching.  You could hear a pin drop.  All eyes were on him as he spoke words from his heart.  Vows he had written.  We all watched as his eyes moved to their guests.  He looked at Hayden, his future step daughter.  She walked to him shyly in her little white dress and flower crown.  He knelt down and looked into her four year old eyes.  He spoke sweet words to her and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.  Not only was he gaining a wife this day, he was also gaining a daughter.  A family.  And she calls him Mr. Tom. 

Amy and Tom,

Thank you so much for choosing us to capture your special day.  You two are the kind of couple who remind us why we do what we do.  With your loving family and your laughter, the day couldn’t have been more memorable.  We wish you the absolute best in the future.  Congratulations!

Love,

Jess and Nate
