I often corner couples by asking them questions about their relationship such as what they thought when they first met each other, their first date, what their biggest dream together is. I love to hear the stories and I find it helps couples relax and forget about the camera and remember the person standing beside them, which is the most important thing that they can do.
This is Jamie & Matt. They had it easy. I didn’t pick on them too much because Jamie is my kid cousin and I already had a few details. But I like to hear both sides of the story. So I had Matt tell me how they met. When someone you love dearly, like your kid cousin, decides to get married you can’t help but worry. You want nothing but the best for loved ones and you wish from the very bottom of your heart that everything that they have ever hoped for will come to them. Don’t get me wrong – I’ve always adored Matt. He is hilarious and smart. Such an incredibly friendly guy, that from the very second you meet him you feel like you’ve known him for years.
And so while Matt told me how he met my cousin (Vegas – he crashed her birthday trip), what he thought when he first met her (Amazing), and how he asked her to spend the rest of her life with him (a slightly fumbled and yet entirely perfect proposal in the town where they first met), I stopped worrying. I can’t remember the last time I saw Jamie smile so much
