Oh man, how do I talk about this couple and keep it short and sweet? I adore Julie. My favorite thing about her in the whole world is her laugh. She has the most vibrant and contagious laugh out of anyone I have ever met. And she laughs constantly.
My husband would say that one of my giftings is the ability to read people really well and to read them rather quickly. I have to agree- I have always been a people-watcher and I have always been fascinated by how people (especially strangers) interact and converse. I can always tell in the first 5 minutes of meeting someone if they are someone that I will like, trust, and would want to be around. It’s a gift and curse because I can often by picky about who I want to surround myself with. But I knew immediately after the first handshake when I first met Julie that she was someone I would love. I couldn’t stop staring at her smile, and I’m thinking she felt the same about me because we sat in that starbucks that day and chatted for over 2 1/2 hours. It was so much fun and I knew that I HAD to have Julie in my life.
Getting to know Jonathan and Julie over many months was SUCH a blessing to Andrew and I. They are so authentic- a quality that we really value, and yet they are so joyful. After loss and hardship and joys and triumphs, they have become two incredibly humble, appreciative and truly genuine souls. Julie was VIBRANT on her wedding day, as you will see from the images below, and Jonathan was his typical self- calm, collected, happy, and so adoring of his new bride.
We truly loved every moment of this colorful day! We loved the spunk, the combination of colors, and all of our talented “friendors” including our dear friends from Imoni Events who did SUCH an incredible job on this wedding! Enjoy! -A&EJ
