I am so honored to share this love story. I first met Jessica a few years ago when we worked together at Beaumont Hospital, and we became quick friends! I remember one day when we were chatting over life, love, and our big plans for the future… stepping back and realizing exactly how beautiful she was. Not in a superficial way, but in her soul. She is so kind, humble, and sweet. I had been dreaming up a project but was still in search of the perfect subject. So it was then, mid-sentence, that I asked Jessica to model for me. She blushed and questioned why I would pick her, but instantly said yes! Later that month, we trenched through the snow and created magic together! I would like to believe that our session , celebrating her beauty, is what gave this shy girl the confidence to move forward towards one of her biggest dreams!
Shortly after our session, Jessica made it public that she was dating someone new (another co-worker), Eric. Instantly we all knew they would be the perfect match! As we watched their love grow, I couldn’t help but feel so proud of my friend for finally listening to her heart<3
I remember during their engagement session, Eric couldn’t stop smiling. I had asked him to pose a little more seriously and he said to me ” I just can’t.. how can I look at her and not smile? I’m SO happy.” That same happiness radiated as Eric + Jess said their vows on the stunning grounds of Greystone Golf Club, in Washington Twp Michigan on August 4th. <3
Congratulations to the new Mr. + Mrs. Rinaldi! May your days be full of never-ending love, laughter, and adventure!
