Jenna and Josh were brought together by their love for music, so it made sense to incorporate music throughout their backyard wedding in Sauk Centre, Minnesota. Their College Piano Professor played the piano and one of the bridesmaids sang the most beautiful song during the intimate ceremony. Then to top it off, Josh surprised Jenna before the first dance with her wedding gift…a song written and composed by him on the piano. You can see it unfold, and hear the love in this video…
Jenna’s parents worked hard for weeks transforming their backyard into a beautiful wedding venue. They created a ceremony space by placing chairs facing one of the mature oaks on the property. Or maybe it was a maple tree. Regardless, it was a beautiful tree:) Speaking of trees…I must share what was read at the ceremony. It really connects with me because it is reminds me so much of my logo and the meaning behind my logo!!
“Love is a temporary madness; it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision: You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness. It is not excitement. It is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being ‘in love’, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being ‘in love’ has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those who truly love have roots that grow toward each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.”
