This wedding was VERY special to so many people. It really felt like the event of the town. Holly is known and loved by scads of people. When she met Addison and brought him back to Indiana we all embraced him as well. He and Holly are truly made for each other. No question. When they flew me to San Antonio for their engagement shoot I left knowing that Addison would forever take good care of our Berne girl.
As I was going through the images for this post I had goosebumps and sometimes tears in my eyes. The love and JOY that filled this entire day were touchable. I also laughed many times at Addison’s silly expressions. He’s a funny guy! Holly was overwhelmed with the love in the room. I spoke with so many people that day who all expressed how genuinely happy they were for this pair.
Their wedding party was the BEST. And it does seem that Holly has the most gorgeous friends. They all looked beautiful and were such a sweet group of ladies to be with throughout the day. Ahhhh insert big hug for the bridal party here.
Let’s chat a minute about the reception. I cried during Ashley’s toast. No, nothing emotional, sentimental or sappy – just so stinking hilarious I couldn’t stop laughing. The room roared during it. But it was simply a follow up to the toast that Holly herself gave during Ashley’s reception in 2011.
One other very special moment took everyone’s breath away. Holly danced with her grandpa – he is a special guy. But as the song went on each grand-daughter cut in and danced with grandpa for a while. The song “Grandpa… tell me ’bout the good ol’ days” played as they danced. I just kept thinking of how loved those girls feel by their grandpa, Jerry.
Now my friends I share with you some precious photos of a couple whom I love and adore. Thank you Holly and Addison. You are wonderful and I love you both.
Have a great Monday.
