They met, officially, at a wedding. In reality it may have been many years prior as kids playing in the backyard while parents and family friends chatted inside, but I’ll leave that story to family lore. What mattered was that they met, and sitting next to each other at Heather’s cousin’s and/or Joe’s best friend’s (depending on whose telling the story) wedding, they both just kind of knew.
And so did everyone else. During their toasts, both Heather’s sisters and Joe’s brother remarked at how Heather and Joe never acted like that awkward new couple, so fresh at the start of their relationship, but rather jumped right into that knowing comfort that normally only comes after years of knowing a person. Joe and Heather’s souls just fit so perfectly together that there was never any question of what would come next.
Their wedding day was a full-fledged celebration of love, faith and family and the truest example of two families becoming one. It was a hot day, but beautiful, and though the forecast had promised a chance of thunderstorms, everyone was perfectly dry under a sunny sky as Heather’s dad walked her down the aisle to become Mrs. Potthast. H+J, I can’t thank you two enough for the love and joy that you allowed me to capture for you on your day! It was such an honor to be a part of this beautiful day, and I hope you’ll love this first look at my favorites of your images!
