Pam and Tom immediately knew what they wanted for their wedding. A small, intimate ceremony at the beautiful Botanical Gardens on a Thursday afternoon, with their closest people and of course, their huge St. Bernard dog, Cooper! And it truly was a perfect moment. As I watched them hold hands (and a leash), I saw them become more emotional than they anticipated. I sometimes think that people assume since it’s a small wedding without all the bells and whistles, they will casually walk through it, but then you start listening to the words and thinking about your partner and THAT’S IT! The tears begin and I watch emotion sweep over them. It was truly a lovely moment and I got many, many dog pets. Congratulations Tom and Pam! I see such love and happiness in your future. Take care!
