On a brisk December morning in Los Olivos, California, Aly & Jake embarked on the next chapter of their love story. They dropped their title of fiancés and picked up a shiny new one as husband and wife! At their Saarloos & Sons Winery wedding in front of family and friends, they agreed to rely on and protect each other every day. To listen when the other was speaking, and to us, most importantly, they agreed to love each other deeper and more fiercely every day.
Normally, we love all the moments of a wedding day equally because there are so many special and one of a kind moments, that it’s so difficult to choose a favorite. But this December morning we chose a favorite. And it still brings a smile to our face when we think of it. Now we’re not there yet, and we won’t be for a long long time, but during Aly & Jake’s Saarloos & Sons Winery wedding our favorite moment was watching their parents during the ceremony.
We saw a joyful, yet teary-eyed moms and dads with proud smiles intently watching their children at the altar. Listening to every word. Every vow. And seeing their children all grown up. And we loved what we saw! We like to imagine that parents are remembering all the times their child wanted to excitedly show them something. Or asked for help. Or that time they accidentally made a mess, but they were having a lot of fun so they let it slide. The moments they’ve held close to their hearts all these years. And now, as they watch their once little ones getting married they are joyful, yet teary-eyed. And they are proud.
Aly & Jake, although our time was short, we loved every minute of it. We loved meeting your family and hearing them share stories about the two of you. We loved listening to your vows and the promises you made to each other. Every part of your wedding day was beautiful. Thank you for letting us be apart of such a special celebration in your lives! We’re wishing you all the happiness in the world!
