Chelsea & Jared // April 10, 2021

    Ezer-kenegdo. The Ezer is a warrior. The Hebrew word Kenegdo means opposite to him or corresponding to him. A woman is no better or less than a man. Man and woman are equally and uniquely created to be a perfect fit.

    First wedding of the season in the books! And what an amazing wedding it was.

    I was introduced to Chelsea and Jared through a mutual friend (shout out to Melaura), and I instantly became excited for the wedding to come. In COVID fashion, Chelsea and Jared decided to have a small backyard ceremony at Chelsea’s parent’s house. After already making it through one full wedding season during the pandemic, I was very familiar with backyard weddings at this point, and they can go either one of two ways: An unorganized mess that can lead to frustration and annoyance, or an intimate, one-of-a-kind experience that leaves everyone in attendance with their hearts’ melted. All I can say is to watch the final film and you’ll quickly discover which was the case. (Hint: it’s the latter of the two).

    Here’s to a long, happy life with the one you love. I wish you two the best!
