JORDAN AND JONATHAN | A HISTORIC RICE MILL SPRING WEDDING

ALL the feels. That really just describes how I felt on Jordan and Jonathan’s wedding day at the Historic Rice Mill in downtown Charleston. I laughed at their vows. I hysterically laughed at the speeches. I smiled watching the newlyweds two step to a Dustin Lynch song in honor of one of their first outings together. And I cried. Like I said, ALL the feels. It was a day full of emotion and love, and I was just happy to be a fly on the wall for all of it. Pair that with the fact that Jordan actually went to the same high school as I did way back in the day, so this was a little bit of a reunion of sorts for me seeing some of the guests that I haven’t seen in quite a while, and all of it made the day that much more fun. Oh and did I mention one of Jordan’s bridesmaids, Amalie, is a future #kdyebride as well? Best day ever.

The first part of the day that had me shedding a little tear was when Dr. Helman, Jordan’s dad, saw her for the first time after she had put on her wedding dress. Entering her hotel room he immediately teared up and pulled her in tight for an embrace. The two stayed hugging for a minute and it was beyond touching. After it was all over I tired to Dr. Helman and said, “You know Dr. Helman, not every father tears up the way you just did. That was so sweet.” And he turned to me and said, “Well not every father has Jordan as a daughter.” SERIOUSLY?!? Can you get any sweeter than that? Cue my first tears.

Later in the day when the two were reading their personal vows to each other I found myself tearing up again as Jordan herself was overcome with emotion. There’s just something that gets to me when either the bride or groom starts to cry during their vows. And finally, the last time I cried was during the reception when Jordan’s brother, Doug, sang, “My Little Girl” by Tim McGraw as Jordan danced with her father. Such a personal moment, and it was so special to have a family member sing it.

Jordan and Jonathan, your day was beyond perfect. Not even the crazy wind could take the wind out of your sails, and that speaks a lot to who the two of you are as people. Take that into your marriage, and know that even the unexpected challenges aren’t a match for you if you take them on together.
