Jeremy and Kerry got married in Portsmouth, RI (on my husband’s and my 12th wedding anniversary) and I had the honor of performing their ceremony.

In addition to many wonderful shared moments and lots of beautiful laughter as we got to know each other, they were the first couple to introduce me to the concept of the First Look.

(They were not the first couple I’ve worked with to enjoy this private, pre-wedding moment — and certainly not the last. But they were the first who named and explained it to me, which I greatly appreciated.)

They were also one of the many couples I’ve worked with that I didn’t want to say goodbye to at the end of our planning meetings, and with whom I often lingered chatting about life well beyond vows and readings.

But one of the things I will treasure most about working with this beautiful couple, is the way they touched my heart in a very special and significant way.

I will never forget the end of one of our cozy, coffee-shop meetings when Jeremy looked at me and said:

“Honestly, it almost doesn’t even matter what you say, Erin. We picked you because we want YOU there with us on our wedding day.”

His words marked a significant turning point for me, personally and professionally, and I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to work with this beautiful couple.

I am also very grateful that, with their permission, I get to share a little of their magical day with you.

  1. Me too.

    I especially love the little boys and the sweet older gentleman dancing.

    (Well that and everything about the bride and groom, but that kinda goes without saying. ;-)

  2. Loved the video – looks like a fun and HAPPY occasion! The Glen Manor is a special place (that is where Chris and I had our wedding reception – made me remember all over our special day) – thanks for sharing all of you!

    1. The Glen Manor is one of my favorite celebration spots. I had attended weddings there before, but this was the first that I officiated. Everything about it was absolutely lovely.

      Glad it brought back happy memories for you!!

      Much love,

  3. When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!
