Manquin, VA Seven Springs Wedding | AJ & Jamie

January 3, 2022

I’ll be honest, AJ and Jamie’s Seven Springs wedding is going to be hard to get through, but in a good way.

I IMMEDIATELY connected with Jamie and that was without even talking to her or meeting her… strictly just through email. I remember thinking “dang, this girl is on it and I love that she gives EVERY detail and then some”. She even sent me photos and video of their engagement. I knew instantly, for the second time, that they were my people. Getting to know Jamie over texts and Dm’s and calls was so much fun, it is just so natural and comfortable and when I say she is one of my biggest cheerleaders… I mean it! Some of you have some major competition HAHA.

The time I got to spend with them face to face during their engagement session just made me swoon even more. I fell in love with AJ as well and I knew from the moment I saw him look at her what Jamie had been sharing with me about him was so true. It’s one of those things that you just have to witness to believe and once you do it just “fits”. Jamie and I also bonded over loss, as sad and hurtful as it is… our conversations connected us more and there were times she didn’t even know how much I needed her words and she just seemed to know and share them.

Here it is AJ & Jamie’s moment and time and THEY are spoiling my family and I by constantly checking in. I tell you… these two really are ANGELS.

Hearing AJ speak about Jamie and turning red is just the sweetest thing and it makes me so happy that they have one another and there is no doubt these two old souls were created specifically for one another. I’d put money on that.

I really can’t say enough wonderful things about my couples and when I think they can’t possibly get any better and how could I deserve them… God sends me someone extra special with purpose that I can’t even begin to try and understand how or why. I’m just beyond grateful. 

I could go on forever about these two, but let me share a little bit about their wedding day!

AJ  & Jamie’s Seven Springs Wedding

Seven Springs is no secret my favorite Venue. Add a little bit more of perfect fit with that. Tracy is a favorite so she’s the cherry on top (LOVE YOU TRACY!). Seriously if Tracy was a wedding planner for Dollar General in the worst possible place on earth I’d book it just for her… enough said LOL. AJ and Jamie’s day was filled with incredible people, details, and a dream Vendor team – the epitome of perfection and that’s exactly what their day was.

AJ & Jamie, THANK YOU! It’s still not enough. I love you both so much and I can’t wait for baby girl Serrano to arrive so I can add another to love. Your kindness in large and small doses is so much appreciated and you’ve forever touched my heart. I can’t wait to see you again.
