We have had the pleasure of getting to know Janice and Jason (the J’s) through Jason’s sister MJ and his brother-in-law Mike (the M’s). The M’s are two of the most important people to Daniel and I (the D’s), so we the D’s knew that because we love the M’s, we would also love the J’s (and we do!).
On their wedding day we quickly learned that we are but two names on a very, very long list of people who also love the J’s. From the start of the day to the end of the night, their posse of friends and family enthusiastically participated in surrounding them with a crazy amount of high energy. They ambushed them at the exit of the church, cheered them on during the limo ride drink-chugging, and every one of them took part in an epic dance-off… not surprising considering one of the groomsmen is a member of the Jabbawockeez!
The J’s incorporated their shared passions for beer, their cockerspaniel Fuji, and Star Wars into their wedding; my personal favorite was their “May the J’s be with you” Instagram hashtag. Not only do the J’s share these quirky interests and inside jokes with each other, but their friends and families are very much a part of the stories that led to their ongoing antics. Throughout the day I was reminded of how precious it is to not only find the person who brings out the best version of yourself, but also to find an entourage of friends who enrich your life. The J’s have that in spades, and their wedding was a celebration of just that.
The M’s have enriched our lives since the moment we met them, and we are so grateful to have been included in the J’s circle with such warm and open arms. Thanks for sharing your wedding day with us, you two. “This will be a day long remembered.” (that’s a Star Wars quote… which I’ll admit I had to Google!)
