I know there are many times I come on here and talk about the love and support from my couples’ families and friends. It’s because that is one of my biggest commonalities when it comes to HMP Couples.
They are very close to the people they love!
However, Jt and Rory’s oceanfront New Jersey wedding may have just topped it all. Throughout their entire day, new groups of people were showing up with endless support for these two! It was something extra special to watch. The day started at Jt’s mom and stepdad’s house. Let me just pause for a second to tell you just how stunning their house is!
Straight out of a magazine!
The relationship between Jt and her mom is equivalent to a best friend. She wanted her mom to be a part of pretty much every moment, and it was so special to watch. Her mom and grandparents even came to say hi during their engagement session. It was so fun to get to know them ahead of time. Plus, they are my kind of people because we ran into each other after the session while getting some ice cream at one of the local shops!
They know the best way to end an evening!
In addition to her mom, the girls that she had as her bridesmaids were the best hype girls! And all stunningly gorgeous might I add! They made the morning so much fun, and Jt was truly able to just enjoy herself as she got ready with the ones she loves! The same thing went for the guys! Rory’s groomsmen sure know how to get a party started! They were the first on the dance floor and the last to leave it!
A perfect combo for a bridal party!
At the ceremony, Jt had another special group of people there to support her. One I have never seen before, but it was the absolute sweetest thing! She had invited all of her students that she taught to come and join in the celebration of their marriage. It was the most special thing to see her recess down the aisle after they said “I do” and be bombarded by all of her students with the biggest hugs!
They love her so much!!
The final extra special guest to be a part of their day happened next. Trebek, their absolutely adorable pup made an appearance at the wedding, too. He made other appearances throughout the day on their bar napkins and on several signs, but he had a special photo session with the two of them before they headed to the reception. He was so well-behaved and so stinking excited to see them and give them kisses!
He truly was the special guest of the day!
Throughout all of the endless love they received from their family and friends, Jt and Rory always made sure I was taken care of and included, as well. During our trolley ride to the venue, Jt showed me all of the special places throughout their town. It was so fun walking down memory lane with her and learning more about the two of them. Plus, she came over during the reception to make absolutely sure that my second shooter and I had been able to eat!
It’s those little things that let me know I have the best couples!
Jt and Rory, thank you! You have welcomed me in with open arms from day one! You two have become more than just one of my couples – I consider both of you friends! Don’t worry, the next time I’m in New Jersey, I’ll be stopping by to say hi and to get some Hoffman’s ice cream! You two had an absolutely beautiful day! So happy for you both!
