From the moment I first heard Grace & Connor's "How we met" story, I just knew we would be a perfect fit to work together. Simply put, I adore them. I adore their whole family. These two have so much support and love from every single family member. Connor met Grace on their first day of college. He came home that first week and told his mom he met the girl he was going to marry. WOW.
Girls, find you a man that KNOWS he's gonna marry you... and boys, find you a girl that looks at you like you have hung the moon and the stars and the planets and the sun and everything else in the entire world because that is exactly how Grace looks at Connor. These two are a made for each other.
The whole family was so involved and you can see just how much love surrounds this beautiful young couple. Grace's grandparent's (the owners of The London Tea Room) brought some DIVINE scones and cakes and pastries for us to brunch on. I even broke my "no carb" diet for those goodies.
There is always something at a wedding that gets me right in the feels. Sometimes it's a first look, or the sweet words during a toast. This time though. This time had me full blown almost ugly crying. Thank goodness I had my camera to hide my face. Grace is super close with her mom and decided to surprise her and do a "first dance" with her. OH MY MAMA HEART could not handle it. Her relationship with Jodi is so similar to the relationship I share with my own baby girl and it just got me. WHEW. I don't think there was a dry eye in the building.
The two finished their Sunday wedding with a ribbon and bubble send off. It was the sweetest wedding. I can't wait to see where their lives take them!
