The first time we met Holly and Jason in person was at a candy store in downtown Holland, Michigan. Luanne (my wife) was raiding the Jelly Belly jars, and I was taking pictures of the clerk while she poured them with into a bag with a little metal scoop. I may have told the clerk to “pretend like I’m not even here”, and Holly and Jason may have seen me do it. I still don’t know, and I’ve never asked, because I was a little embarrassed.
“Oh look, there’s our wedding photographer in a candy store harassing the help with a giant camera. Wonderful.”
It turns out they probably thought it was funny, and, had we known each other a little better at the time, they probably would have jumped in and done a few pours themselves.
See, Jason and Holly are fun. And more importantly, they’re wonderful, caring people who love each other very much. As an outsider looking in on their wedding day it was awesome to witness. I’m thrilled that I was the one to document it and tell their story.
But more than that, I’m thrilled that after this whole little adventure Luanne and I now consider Holly and Jason our friends, and we’ll be making lots more memories for years to come.
