This is a beautiful love story. Not just a love story between Jane and David, but between their friends, family and pretty much everyone (including us) who cross their path.
Jane and David were married on Cape Cod in the little town of Wellfleet. It was a cloudy weekend with threats of rain but that didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits. From the rehearsal dinner where our groom cooked gumbo for all 150 guests, to the last dance at the wedding, the genuine and overwhelming feeling of love was infinite. The speeches and toasts were endless and everyone had variations of the same theme. It seems that each person who has known this couple in some way has had their lives enriched for the better. Everyone has been welcomed into their world with open arms and treated with kindness. David is an architect and Jane is a human rights researcher and they live in Brooklyn, NY.
This year I’ve been better about asking my couples to say a little something about themselves before the wedding. I am looking forward to sharing their stories here on the blog with you! This is what the radiant couple had to say about themselves in their own words:
“We’re both passionate about people’s interactions with each other and their communities at large; we like running together; Dave likes cooking inventive meals for Jane who likes eating them; we love travel and exploring together; basically our favorite hobby is chatting.”
Here is how they met and fell in love: “We were each being offered in a silent auction for an environmental non-profit…Jane to share some of her experience with human rights and environment advocacy and Dave to consult on your home or office’s energy efficiency. We were introduced to each other and stopped talking to anyone else at the party. We ended up successfully bidding on each other, thereby securing at least 2 dates . We both knew it was big right away and first kissed under the Brooklyn Bridge after a classical music concert in DUMBO, Brooklyn, 2 days after we met.” Sigh.
And lastly, here are some details about their wedding: ” We’re very excited to get married on cape cod which has been a very significant place for Jane’s family since childhood. David is cooking the food for the rehearsal dinner (with help form friends and family) which reflects a special part of our relationship. We’re excited about our wedding day but most excited that we get to keep doing what we’re doing for the rest of our lives.”
I feel incredibly honored to have been present for Jane and Dave’s fabulous wedding weekend! From their “under the sea” themed tent to their hand drawn invitations, every bit of this wedding is fun and beautiful. Here are just a few of my favorites from the wedding day.
This was an amazing little detail.
During the ceremony all these fiddler crabs climbed up on the wall to watch them get married. My mom got this shot of them.
Married!! They had the best recessional song ever! New Morning by Bob Dylan was sung by a family member. Love.
Jane and David got engaged on this bridge!
