Jess & Yuri {Married} Part 1

December 7th 2013 was a great day. The sky was a bright blue. The sun kissed our noses and after many years, many smiles, many hugs and cuddles, many walks together, many laughs and also many tears… Jess and Yuri tie the knot.

Do you remember their beach engagement shoot a couple of months back? …Needless to say… we’d been looking forward to this wedding!

So much thought was put into this day. From every detail from the getting ready to the reception, to the beauuuutiful dress (that Jess even said she just couldn’t WAIT to wear) and all the thoughtful gifts that were given out to those loved most.

Jess is so thoughtful. She gave her Mum and Dad a beautiful personalised gift that started the waterworks.

There was so much beautiful emotion throughout the ceremony. Jess and Yuri just have so much love for one another. Tears of joy are the best kind of tears!

Molly did her job well, and that was to get the rings up the aisle… hold them safely … to the point that uh, she held them a little too tight. … They couldn’t get them off the collar. lol
