Jara and Josh had an incredible day.
Several days before their wedding, there were some crazy storms in the area. On their big day, the rain took a break and the sun even decided to peek through. However, because of the storms, they learned that their reception at the Barn at Fallingwater would be without electricity.
Now, I don’t know how most brides would have handled this news, but all I can say is Jara handled it way better than I would have. She was calm, sweet, patient, and just incredible. Her smile never left her face (one of her friends told me later that night, that they have never seen her without a smile on her face).
Jara and Josh got married that beautiful day. It didn’t matter that things didn’t go exactly as planned. They were together with their friends and family…
and love was all they needed.
Some of Jara’s close friends stopped by to give her a gift before her wedding. I wish I knew what the story was behind the underwear. I might have overheard “sisterhood of the traveling granny panties” or I might be making that up.
This was totally Josh’s idea. He had a fantastic sense of humor.
Josh’s ring was a little tight.
Besides the spectacular ceremony location, another perk of having your wedding at the Barn at Fallingwater was the access to Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous Fallingwater house for a photography session.
Remember how there’s no power? Jara decided to move the dancing outdoors into the cooler air. The DJ was able to get a generator so there was music and no one had to hum.
This was one serious chicken dance. Love the expressions.
Jara and Josh, thank you for being an inspiration and for inviting Andrea and I to celebrate with you.
“All you need is Love.” Very fitting.
