Matt and I had the privilege of traveling to Astoria, Oregon for a wedding this summer.
Jessica & Tillmon (also known as "Bootsy") were married in Astoria on July 31, 2010!
I had met Jessica last year, through a friend, and I was instantly drawn to her bubbly personality. Even though I hadn't previously met her fiance, I was so excited that they asked us to be their wedding photographers. We were greeted with such gracious hospitality by their friends and family and had a great weekend getting to know everyone.
Their story as told by Jessica:
"We met through mutual friends who thought we would be perfect for one another....The problem? I was 14 and he was 17...So, for years we heard about one another and then we finally met 11 years ago, then we met again. That was the point when we knew that there was a mutual interest and saw what our friends had seen all those years ago...that maybe we were a good match. However, Bootsy had just receieved his acceptance to Bethel and I had an interest in serving where the need was greater. So, not being willing to stand in eachothers way and progress spiritually we both went on our merry way.
Last spring we were reconnected and began dating in June 2009 and were married on July 31st 2010."

Congratulations to a beautiful couple!
