Jon + Bridget {Sudden Valley Dance Barn Wedding}

If there are two more sincere, gentle, all-inclusive, centered and open people on the face of this planet than Jon & Bridget, I have not met them. Strong,intelligent, creative people who have weathered much and adventured all over the world, they knew each other in high school but the sparks didn’t fly until years later when their lives collided into each other again. Today they celebrated another adventure as they officially placed a “start” marker in their forever together. Friends and family traveled from all over the world to share in this incredible day with this incredible couple.

Jon handmade their matching wedding rings with a personal design that’s just incredibly striking. He was actually nearly finished with Bridget’s when she surprised him by proposing to him!

Jon handmade each of his groomsmen’s boutonnieres with a specially selected beer cap based on their friendship and experiences together. He also made one for a groomsman who should have been there but was not, a dear friend who passed away suddenly two years ago. Talk about tears – not a dry eye in the house. Including mine.

I love this rare tradition. Jon & Bridget’s rings were passed through the crowd, starting & ending with their parents, and everyone prayed or directed blessings to the couple as they touched these symbolic pieces of jewelry that they will be wearing for the rest of their lives.

A musician friend wrote and sang Jon & Bridget’s first dance song as his gift to them, and tonight was the first time either of them had heard it. An incredible, beautiful tribute.
