“He says he doesn’t have it in him to cry. Ever.” Jettie says to me when I ask her if she thought that Russ would tear up when he first saw her. Well, Russ may be right, but the expression on his face when he saw his bride walk down the aisle was undeniable; he was excited and in awe of his radiant lady.
And radiant she was! All smiles throughout the day, and that happiness was exponential when she was near Russ (or Russell, as she calls him.) These two know what it takes to throw an event, and also know how to make an entrance! During their introduction into the reception, a split second after Russ and Jettie entered the reception room, Russ threw Jettie into the air, she landed in his arms, and they ended with a long kiss. And then Russ gracefully spun her out of his arms and back onto the dance floor before they took their seat at the sweetheart table. It was one of those jaw-on-the-floor moments where I said to myself “Dang, now that is an entrance I will never forget!”
It was an emotional day, mostly huge smiles, but also happy tears (for example, when Jettie’s father read the letter she wrote to him, it was such a sweet moment!)
And the fact that all stages of the day took place practically in my back yard, well that was icing on the cake!
Take a look to see Jettie and Russ’s amazing wedding day!
