“A heart is not judged by how much you love; but by how much you are loved by others.” ― The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
That quote kicked off Marsha and Judy’s wedding ceremony, and I can think of no more fitting description for these two incredible women.
They’ve been together for almost 20 years- first meeting online, becoming close over messages, then their first date at Steak and Shake. They’re the two incredible aunts of my best friend, Veronica, and my newest acquired family members as I slowly carve out a permanent spot in her family. :) When I started asking Veronica questions about how they met, she responded with, “I don’t actually know- They’ve just always been ‘Marsha and Judy’ as long as I can remember.” I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a couple more beloved- When they opened up the mic for toasts during the reception, it was practically standing room only of people sharing their memories, love, and gratitude for these two, each sentiment more touching than the last.
In the 13 years we’ve photographed weddings, this was my all-time favorite ceremony. Veronica’s dad officiated, her mother sang, and every quote, sentiment, vow, and laugh was so perfectly tailored to them and the life they’ve built together.
Nate said it best on our drive home. “We’ve only known them a short time, but our lives are already richer because of them.”
Marsha and Judy, we love you to the moon, and we hope you love your wedding preview. Thank you for the greatest honor of letting us be your photographers!! :)
I have never, ever seen a more joyful start to a wedding ceremony than watching Marsha literally giggle and dance her way down the aisle and both of them greeting their guests with big hugs and kisses!!
Trying to steal a kiss after Judy said her vows! :)
