This Summer my sister Gloria and now brother-in-law Jeremiah were married at Portico Weddings & Events .  Portico is a great wedding venue in Gilbert, Arizona that hosts both an outdoor ceremony and reception.  What a great day for these two.  It was the perfect celebration for both of our families.  We were able to see some of our family and friends from back East that came out to celebrate with us.  Fun was had by all!

I had a little bit of double duty because I was a bridesmaid and our 2 year old son Hudson was a ring bearer.  I also helped photograph the wedding with my husband, Jeff.  Between the two of us, we were able to capture all of the wonderful moments of the day.

Congratulations to Jeremiah and Gloria!  Enjoy the photos as you relive your special day.  We love you both very much.

Cheers and Love,
J+D

Jeff and I love to shoot weddings!  We get to share a very special time with our couples as they start their journey together to the “Happily Ever After”.  The best part is we get to work together and a lot of the time it really doesn’t feel like work to us.  I feel grateful to be able to work with my hubby, doing something we love…photography!!

This wedding is near and dear to my heart as it is a family wedding.  My little sister Cindy got married this month!!  A big congratulations to Greg and Cindy as they begin their married life together.  Here is the start of your “Happily Ever After”…

Cheers+Love,
J+D
