We used to fight like cats and dogs. Most of our weekends were filled with one or both of us being sent to our respective rooms by our loving mother – God, that woman had some serious patience! :) He is 7 years older than me…and in my opinion, his endless pestering and teasing helped to make me into the strong woman that I am today. (Not that I didn’t pester and tease him relentlessly too! I did once nearly give him a concussion after kneeing him in the head. In my defense…he was lying on top of me and wouldn’t let me up!) It wasn’t until I was a freshman in college that I finally got fed up with his teasing on a family vacation to Disney World…and turned around and socked him so hard in the chest that he nearly lost his breath…and the teasing stopped. But all joking aside, my brother Dave is probably one of the most caring, selfless, charismatic and amazing men that I know. So imagine how happy the whole family was when he finally proposed to his wonderful girlfriend of 3 years, Jess! We knew these two were the perfect match…and we couldn’t wait to officially call Jess and her two adorable daughters, Kalie and Sam, part of the family.
We did have to wait a bit longer for the wedding…but it was totally worth it – as Dave and Jess decided to get married surrounded by their closest family and friends in an intimate ceremony and reception at the Dreams Punta Cana Resort in the Dominican Republic! We enjoyed spending the week with family…swimming in the pool, sitting by the ocean and soaking up the sun. Then it was time to celebrate with my big brother and his beautiful new wife!
Dave and Jess – we feel so blessed to have you and the girls in our lives. Thank you for choosing us to be your wedding day photographers…I couldn’t imagine it any differently! Looking forward to the many memories to come!
