"We would have given her anything she asked for, but she didn't ask for much." Kendra's mom told me at one of our meetings before the wedding. "I just want her day to be perfect, because she deserves it!"
I only know Kendra and Josh as wedding clients, but taking one look around the packed sanctuary while waiting for their ceremony to start indicated that they are very loved by many, many people. And spending the day with them helped us understand why! This couple was one of the sweetest we have worked with, full of graciousness and happiness. I don't think a smile ever left their faces, from their first look to their last dance at the reception. Their love for each other was evident, like when Josh's face lit up when he saw her for the first time that day, or when she smiled so big as she said her vows. I think everyone knew this was something special, and no one wanted to miss the chance to celebrate this kind of love and commitment.
We were on a tight schedule for pictures, but this was one of the best wedding parties we have worked with-- everyone was so kind, and even the little ones were ready to smile for us when needed! I think they all wanted Kendra and Josh's day to be perfect, just like her mom had, so they tried their best to be helpful and make the day as fun and relaxing as possible. The bridesmaids not only took care of anything the bride needed, but also asked us more than once if they could get us anything or help in any way. Jimmy and I were grateful to be working with not only a wonderful bride and groom, but a sweet wedding party as well!
Thanks so much, Kendra and Josh, for inviting us to be a part of your day, and congratulations! We wish you guys all the best!
