“Hey Cat, can you see my ring?” I will always remember those sweet words from Andrew as he took portraits with Janey. Some people go into wedding days assuming that the bride is just a little more excited about getting married than the groom. And that’s just not the case. Andrew absolutely couldn’t wait to marry Janey. And asking me if we could see his ring in their portraits was a testament of how proud he was to be a husband and to be married to the woman of his dreams. And Janey felt the exact same.
They met while at the University of Dayton and it just seemed like fate. When Janey first saw him while they were working at the rec center she couldn’t believe how cute he was. Andrew took his time but after he had a talk with his best man, Dan, about how great Dan thought Janey would be for Andrew, he woke up the next day and he knew he had to ask Janey on a date and from there it was clear they were madly in love.
Their wedding day was nothing but a celebration. So much love from their families radiated around them and so did their love for each other. I felt truly honored to have been a part of their day all day long and I can’t wait to see where their next journey in California takes them. But for now, I am reliving their day going through all the photos – I can’t wait for you to see them!!
