Sam and Jared seem like opposites, with Jared being reserved and stoic, and Samantha being extroverted and expressive 24/7. It's a match made in heaven.
Sam's mom also had to work hard to keep her emotions in check. It must be quite a thing to watch your baby get married. The entire household was filled with so much happiness and love as the bride got ready; I did what I could to capture it all.
Three shout outs: Stephanie, Sam's planner who double-tasked as a bridesmaid! The priest at Our Lady of the Assumption, such a great human being and an Irish accent too. And finally Matt Kennedy, who I finally had a chance to work with. He will do anything for the shot, including climbing a tree with everyone nervously looking on. Go Matt! (Don't fall.)
Congrats to Sam and Jared! It was a day filled with laughter and surprises.
