It's easy to see why Nickie and Jamie love each other. Practically, they make sense together - they're both tall and attractive, graduates of Hofstra with similar career interests (she works in television, he teaches about television), but their connection goes far deeper than their on-paper attributes. Plain and simple, Nickie and Jamie just make each other happy. Little-kid-on-Christmas-morning kind of happy. They understand each other and make one another laugh harder than anyone else. In their sweet, quiet moments, you can see that what they share is deep and that it has changed their lives.
It's even easier to see why everyone else loves Nickie and Jamie as a couple. These two are just so much fun together. You could literally spend hours with them and look down at your watch and be shocked that so much time has gone by. They're easy to talk to, fun to be around and two of the kindest, sweetest people you're ever likely to meet. They have long thrilled their friends and family with their wacky antics, their quick wit and their fearless ability to do just about anything for a laugh. There is no doubt that their wedding day is going to be a fun-filled, joyous event. We are honored that we'll be there to capture all the incredible moments of their day just a little over a year from now.
New York City holds a special place in Amber's heart. Years ago, she uprooted her life and moved to New York from Texas. She saw the city as a place of endless opportunity, where she could pursue her dreams and, ultimately, change her life. Little did she know just how true that would be. One of those very first nights in New York, Amber went out with her friends to a crowded club. Even with the music blasting and waves of people all around, she still managed to spot Duncan across the room. Neither of them remember who spotted who first, but from the minute their eyes met it was as though they were drawn to one another. Duncan made his way over to her, eager to get to know this gorgeous blonde whose smile had captivated him. As they started to talk, he discovered that not only was Amber beautiful but she was also compassionate and smart, pursuing a degree in special education and excited to be working with children. He was also a student at the time, getting a Masters degree from Yale. With Amber in New York and Duncan in New Haven, the distance and their student schedules would be a bit of challenge, but they did stay in touch. When Duncan moved to New York a short time later, they became very much a couple.
Amber knew that Duncan was the one during one of their many travels together. Hiking on a mountain in South America, Amber looked over at Duncan and knew, without a shadow of a doubt, that this was the man she wanted to share adventures with for the rest of her life. Duncan felt very much the same way. Not too long later, he proposed on a gorgeous day, getting down on one knee with a Mariachi band serenading them all the while. It was made even more special that they were standing on a street in the very city that brought them together in the first place. As she stared at the gorgeous ring on her finger and the kind, handsome man by her side, Amber knew that New York City had changed her life. And made all her dreams come true.
Zoe and Aaron met pretty much right away when they started college, first striking up a conversation during a hike at freshman orientation at Johns Hopkins. They had many things in common, not the least of which was a highly developed entrepreneurial spirit. They started dating not long after that first hike and a short time later they started their first business together. Others would follow, including their current incredibly successful business (check it out, it's pretty awesome & perfect for holiday gifts).
Zoe and Aaron have spent over a decade working together. Rob and I know a little something about running a business with the person you are in a relationship with and the fact that Zoe and Aaron are going as strong as they are is a testament to their strength as a couple. Their combined skills have allowed them to work together and travel the world, creating a life for themselves that most people can only dream of living. And, most of all, they have fun doing it. They clearly love each other's company, and you can imagine their days are as much filled with belly laughs as they are with business plans. Zoe and Aaron just plain make each other happy and, in turn, they improve the lives of the people around them.
These are two people that anyone would be lucky to call a friend. They are quirky and unconventional, super smart and so much fun to be around. So it's no surprise that their wedding was a true celebration. All the people in attendance were thrilled to see this long-time couple become husband and wife and delighted to have an excuse to spend time with them. Throughout the day, there were stories told of Zoe and Aaron through the years - sweet stories, funny stories - all sharing the same common theme: that the person telling the story truly cherished having this incredible couple as a part of their life.
Zoe and Aaron have already lived a pretty spectacular life together, from hiking in Maryland to living in China and settling down in New York City. They have been each other's constant in the fast-paced world in which they have immersed themselves. There's no doubt that these two will continue to do amazing things together and that they will always be surrounded by laughter and love.
Erin and Owen are one of those couples are completely in sync with one another. They fit together in a way that leaves no question as to whether or not they were meant to be together. Maybe it's because they happen to share the same birthday. Maybe it's because they have a similar sense of humor and enjoy some of the same simple pleasures of life - exploring new neighborhoods in NYC, enjoying a glass of wine at a cozy restaurant on a chilly Fall night, savoring a late summer evening at the Jersey shore. Either way, it's easy to see that in one another they have found true unconditional love. They share the kind of love that makes you feel like you can do anything, be anything, because no matter what you will have the unflinching support of the one person that means the most to you in the entire world. And that's pretty special. It's hard to describe what that kind of love looks like, but if you wanted to see it with your own eyes, you would only have to observe Erin and Owen for a few minutes. You would see it in the way he instinctively reaches for her hand when they sit down next to one another and holds it ever so gently, in the way she looks at him when he tells a story, waiting for him to make her laugh.
Owen knew when he met Erin that she was incredibly special and it didn't take him very long after they became a couple to know that he wanted to be with her forever. Even though he knew she felt the same, he still had a mix of nervous excitement when he led Erin down to the Promenade in Brooklyn Heights. There, with the Brooklyn Bridge standing tall to one side and the skyline of Manhattan reflecting onto the water behind them, he asked her to be his wife. Of course she said yes. Yes to a lifetime of exploring neighborhoods and sipping wine in cozy restaurants. Yes to long walks on the sandy beaches of the Jersey shore. Yes to shared birthday parties and the absolute joy of building a life together with a man she adores.
Jessica and Josh are accustomed to making every minute count. The nature of Josh's job in the Navy means that they have to spend time apart, often separated by thousands of miles, having to adapt to living on opposing time zones and different sea levels. So they know what it is to miss one another. They know how much they can long to hear one another's voice, making even the shortest of conversations precious. They know how wonderful a long embrace can feel after months apart. Their love has been made stronger through the distance, the ache they feel when they are apart proving that they were meant to find each other. It has given them a deeper perspective about just how fleeting each moment can be and how important it is to live in the moment, especially in those moments when they are together.
So on their wedding day, when they would be in the same place at the same time with not only one another but also the friends and family they currently live thousands of miles away from, they were going to make absolutely certain that every single second counted. They stared into each other's eyes and listened to one another's voice more closely than ever before as they exchanged their vows. They shared quiet moments, holding each other close, savoring the embrace and the feel of the sun against their faces on a day they would never forget. They danced and laughed with their friends and family, thanking them for making this day all the more special with their presence.
When the night came to an end, Jessica and Josh walked out of their party hand in hand through a sea of light. As the sparklers popped and hissed around them, they grinned from ear to ear, confident that they had just experienced some of the very best hours of their lives. And as the car drove away, leaving their cheering friends and family in the distance, Jessica and Josh embarked on the next chapter of their lives together, knowing that any time they spend apart will just make the time they spend together that much sweeter. After all, this is just the start of a lifetime together.
