Jake & Lauren – Milwaukee County Zoo Wedding

Marry your best friend. Really, find the strongest and happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you, someone who you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of someone who lets you be a fool with them. Life is too short not to love somebody who lets you cry, too. Hard times will come, make sure they are someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness course through you. A love that will never dilute – even when the waters get deep and dark. Love can never be so beautiful without this friendship.

If ever I have seen two best friends become life partners, it was with Jake & Lauren on their wedding day. Weddings always seem to bring out the love that a couple shares in their relationship but it’s truly something special when you can so clearly see the foundation that the relationship is built on: friendship. Surrounded by a circle of friends and family large enough to fill a football stadium, I was able to witness this beautiful friendship, relationship, and partnership that Jake & Lauren have, which has now turned into an even more beautiful marriage.

Jake  & Lauren, your wedding holds such a special place in my heart! Thank you for asking me to be part of your wedding & letting me pretend to be part of your amazing wedding party all day! xo
