WEDDING // St Leonard, MD Jefferson Patterson Park wedding: JJ + Emily

There's no better way to end a 5 day marathon of wedding posts, than to end with my baby brother's beautiful Jefferson Patterson Park wedding.

From start to finish Jj didn't take very long to fall in love & marry our beautiful sister in law, Emily. If you knew her you'd completely understand why. Emily is a sweetheart. She is caring & yet hilarious, seemingly reserved but never for too long, because she's all kinds of fun ... it's just that Jj's fun is a lot louder than hers. Jj is a gentle leader, the life of the party, easy going & the perfect compliment to all that is Emily. Together they dance and sing, and laugh & play, like they've been together for a life time.

When Jj told my husband and I he was going to marry Emily, my initial thought was "Of course you are".
Jj & Emily make perfect sense. Their love for each other, their love for the Lord, and their love for people compliment each other & together, they sharpen those around them.

As easy as their love is, it was no surprise that their wedding day was the easiest wedding day of all time.
Their wedding day felt effortless,  even though in actuality an entire army of family & friends helped bring their dreams to life (everyone did such an amazing job you'd think they were a bunch of wedding professionals), their timeline was perfectly on time with a generous amount of time for bride & groom portraits (a dream for yours truly), there were endless amounts of tears, hugs & kisses, and of course there was the dance floor that never wanted to quit.

Jj & Emily, I can't thank you again for asking me to wear both hats (sister-in-law & wedding photographer) to your wedding. I love you both so much & it's a such a gift to call you both my family. The Lord did a beautiful thing when He brought you two together & as beautiful as your wedding day was ... your marriage is far more beautiful.
