happily ever after | the gemkow wedding story

love is a beautiful thing.

true love finds a wonderful balance between friendship, companionship, faith, values and romance.

kristin and john have true love.

the day before their wedding i received a phone call from john confirming details but  also to share the surprises he had planned for his sweet girl to receive throughout their wedding day.

love letters in bottles marked with a time or reason for receiving each letter. over a dozen. as he explained this, i could hear the excitement in his voice through the phone.

he was so ready to love her the with all his heart.

watching kristin receive her messages in a bottle throughout the day was one of the most heartwarming sights – kristin was living her fairy tale. the one she had dreamt of as a little girl. her prince charming was swooning her by the minute in his hand written words.

kristin and john have this charismatic energy, one which radiates in their interactions with each other and their loved ones.

their true love is bright. it is energetic. it is forever.
