When I met Jessie, Mike, and Jessie’s mom a few months back they told me of a plan they had to make sure Jessie’s dad had a BIG part in her wedding day. Since her dad had passed away, he may not have physically been at the event, but having attended it myself, I can tell you that man was definitely there in spirit and LOVE. This couple was surrounded by love of both sides of their families, and their friends. And everyone who knew Al Siler seemed to feel his presence at Bluemont Vineyard on Sunday, April 23, 2017.
Jessie’s matron of honor had special charms made for her shoes – one with a photo of her dad, and the other with the words “always by your side” – so Jessie could actually walk down the aisle with her dad. Tearing up yet? I did … from the moment I heard this story and all through this day!
If that didn’t bring enough of Al to the day, mom had his treasured 1963 Corvette refurbished and ready to go for the day – so it could be the car that Jessie was driven to the venue in, and so the happy couple could drive away in it – through the sparkler send off at the end of what was a totally perfect day.
Here is a sneak peek for Jessie and Mike. And for the family that is waiting patiently while I work through the images and get everything ready to send out in a few weeks time as finalized images. Enjoy the sneak – and hold on to those tissues folks..I have a ton more that will make you smile and cry at the same time!
Check back soon for more of Jessie & Mike’s day!
