Cassandra & Chris

As Cassandra floated down the spiral staircase she was greeted from below with a chorus of Ohhs, Ahhs and smiles of approval. She was stunning. All of those hours of planning and dreaming were coming closer step by step as she made her way to the first floor. One step closer to the man of her dreams, one step closer to a future together she'd been dreaming about for years. When Cassie reached the floor below she was swallowed up by her sisters, cousins and friends. For that final step she would be carried to Chris on their love and support. It was a moment where I was thankful for autofocus!

Cassie and Chris are such an adorable couple and their families are fantastic. Seriously, by the end of the day I felt like I needed to make the rounds to all the family to say good-bye! They are so warm and welcoming that Karen and I felt like we'd known them for years. Since their wedding took place in Bartlett, Illinois I traveled to the area a day early and joined them for the rehearsal dinner. Spending that much time with Cassie, Chris and their families was such a treat. And I know that for Cassie and Chris it was a true blessing to have their entire families there by their sides. Just two weeks prior to their wedding Chris' father had to undergo an emergency bypass surgery. Thanks to a lot of prayers and determination though there was no place else Ron would have been on that warm July afternoon. I know I speak for a lot of people when I say what a blessing it was to have Chris' father healthy and in attendance.

Cassie & Chris thank you again for your warm hospitality. It was such a treat working with you and your families on your wedding day. You are both so blessed with an incredible circle of support and I am honored to consider you my friends. - much love, Jennifer
