I met Jarrah in high school and we hit it off right way. After high school, with the business of life we somehow slipped apart. We managed to keep up to date on each other via facebook.com, and that is where I found out Jon had asked her to marry him!!
I had met Jon a few times before and whenever they were together you could feel their LOVE. I always think of this speech from the movie “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin” -
“Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being “in love” which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.”
Jon and Jarrah have it.
You can see it in her smile and in his eyes the way he looks at her. It is timeless.
The way he listens to her so endearing.
even the trees fell their love
love and laughter
Jarrah and Jon

I get the honor of capturing raw emotion and meeting wonderful people. It makes my day when a client reacts like this and it is why I love what I do. Thank you Jarrah for sharing your excitement with me! I can not wait for your wedding day!
