They stand up for their beliefs.
They value their family relationships.
They have quality friendships.
In the short time I’ve known Angeli and David, these three things they share as a couple stood out to me from the very start. They are intentional with their actions. They are kind with their words. They are the happiest when they are surrounded by their friends and family.
Having been together for a little over a decade, they have shared growing pains. But they held strong in between pursuing their career and furthering their education. While their life’s journey has taken them over 1900 miles away from their home in Reno, Nevada, they stay grounded and rooted to their family. They are the people who love them and who they love the most.
They say rain is a sign of good luck on a wedding day. With the unpredictable Fall weather we have here in Reno, we had all four seasons happen on their wedding day and it was absolutely perfect. The day started with the sun peeking through the clouds and as we ended the ceremony it was snowing. By the time reception rolled around, the sun shined brighter as it’s ever been all day. This was the perfect time for us to head out for some beautiful outdoor husband and wife portraits that we thought was off the agenda but I think God knew we were celebrating The Jaymes and so He let us have a beautiful sunset.
Angeli and David, gosh where do I even start? I have built such a sweet bond of friendship with you guys, it’s so crazy to think we’ve only known each other for less than a year! It’s been very easy to connect with you two that I feel like we’re old friends. Your wedding ceremony was all the things: Spiritual. Joyful. Emotional. And hearing from your friends and family how deeply rooted you guys are to your faith, family, and friendships… the way you chose to experience your church wedding made perfect sense. It was absolutely beautiful!
I feel so honored that you have trusted me with your most valuable memories. Thank you. I hope you enjoy seeing your love story through my lens just as much as I loved watching it unfold with my own eyes. I wish you both so much love and blessings today and every day as husband and wife. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Jayme!
