Shelby & DJ

There’s something about family – the warmth you feel when you know you’re surrounded by people who have known you longer than anyone else and the incredible peace that comes from being around those to whom you’re tied forever:  through good, bad and ugly.  It’s hugs from family – the ones that are tight and full of memories:  of full houses during the holidays, of summer road trips, and of moments when you’ve bonded together during times both happy and sad – those are the hugs that carry a meaning so much deeper than anything else in the world.

Shelby and DJ’s wedding was like one of those hugs.  DJ is one of 10 siblings, Shelby is one of 3 sisters – and that’s just the beginning of the grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who helped Shelby and DJ celebrate the beginning of their life together.  Even dinner was served, yes, you guessed it:  family style.

Shelby wore a dress that’s been in her family for three generations:  worn by her grandmother, her mother and her aunt.   Such an incredibly beautiful dress and an even more incredibly beautiful tribute.

There was much laughter, many hugs, and a few tears of joy on a beautiful day of celebrating old family and the creation of a new one.
