All the family were in tears at this intimate ceremony in a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Chapel in the Arlington area of Jacksonville. Without words, it was felt that this day was long awaited and there was such joy they could be together. I felt lucky to be apart of it all and witness the family’s playfulness, Holli’s liveliness, Josh’s adoration for his new wife.
After the ceremony and family pictures, we went to American Legion Post 283, just down the road from the church. There, a more carefree reception unfolded. One of my favorite pictures of the night was an unprompted kiss captured from across the room. In the midst of guests and revelry, they only had eyes for each other.
