It was under the willow tree at Goeglein’s Homestead where they stood and reflected on the day so far. The day that all of their family and friends so desperately yearned for for so many years. The day that they had tirelessly worked for since the start of their relationship. The day that was finally here.
When Jackie first brought Matt into the picture, it was an understatement to say that Jackie’s giant Macedonian family welcomed him with open arms, plates of food, and jokes about how Jackie had caught herself a good one. And when Matt brought Jackie home for the first time, his family ensured that her favorite bottle of wine was sitting on the counter ready for her to open. And every time after that when Matt or Jackie stepped through the threshold of each other’s homes, a bottle was always waiting for Jackie and a hug and a kiss on the cheek was waiting for Matt. The warmness emanating from all sides made it only easier for the devotion between Jackie and Matt to grow even stronger.
Their day was filled with laughter, happy tears, warm hugs and loud cheers as family and friends toasted to the couple that held a special spot in all of their hearts. Jackie and Matt, being a part of your day was such a privilege and my heart is so grateful to have met your families that love you so dearly and to witness the love and devotion you two hold for each other. All the love – xx, M & M
