I met Mandie & Jon for the first time the day before their wedding. We had skyped a couple times, but I still wasn’t quite sure what to expect in real life. Turns out, these two are super rad and I sure wish they lived closer so I could hang out with them. They are both theater actors and so are a lot of their friends, so their wedding was literally full of characters. Their officiants wrote this amazing ceremony where they acted out how Mandie & Jon met. Their parents gave speeches during the ceremony that had us all roaring with laughter. The rain that we had been worried about all day decided to open the floodgates and pour down on us the minute the reception started, which was perfect timing, actually. We capped off the night with their first dance, surrounded by their friends and family holding sparklers to light them up.
I wish I had written this blog post right after the wedding because I remember feeling just a ton of joy that day and I’m just having a hard time putting it into words now that we’re 6 months separated from it. You’ll just have to take a look at the photos–they do a better job than my words. Congratulations and huge thanks to Mandie & Jon for having me be a part of your day.
