we got an email one day from a couple named parker + jess. they were planning a wedding around the theme of restoration and repurpose. yes, this played into wonderful details. like the the fact that they were restoring an old dairy barn in the country themselves for their own wedding. or the way jess had re-sewn and repurposed a vintage wedding dress she found in a thrift shop. or the beautiful wedding ring parker gave jess that day – an old family heirloom that had been restored. but even beyond all of that, there was something even deeper. they are two people who believe deeply and with every fiber of their being – that they are restored and have been repurposed for each other . . . for the rest of their lives. we were honored beyond belief to share in this day with them and their loved ones, and their dog, and the cows, and the cold grey skies as they ceased to be two, and began the journey into being one.
