Sarah & Jamie | A Wedding Story| Saint Michael Catholic Church Kalida, Ohio

I first met Sarah several years ago. Over the years, I have witnessed her children growing, the loss of her husband Greg to cancer and her finding love again with Jamie.  She has been an inspiration to so many as she has kept her faith in God through out it all.  So when Sarah asked me to be the photographer for her and Jamie’s church ceremony, I was delighted  to be part of this special event.

Sarah wore a simple but flowing white gown. Her mother, Nancy helped her get into her dress with Sarah’s daughters  Mia and Brynn by her side.  But before walking up the aisle, Sarah quietly read a letter written by Jamie. Somehow she was able to hold back the tears as she read.

As her oldest son Carter walked her up the aisle however, Sarah had a difficult time holding back her emotions as she looked upon her groom Jamie waiting for her.

With Sarah’s children standing at her and Jamie’s side, the couple exchanged vows.

Sarah’s brother Seth signed the communion hymn as their mother helped guide him.  What a beautiful gift Seth has and to share this with Jamie and Sarah on their wedding day made it even more beautiful.

The mass was concluded with Jamie and Sarah saying a prayer to the Virgin Mary and then Father’s blessings on them and the children. DSC_7975DSC_7985DSC_8053
