The LA Arboretum was the most picturesque location for wedding photos, and Jaime and Alan couldn't pass up the opportunity to take their couple's photos there. I don't blame them. This place was gorgeous!
After Jaime's late husband passed away, she found herself talking to her dear cousin and best friend, wondering when and if she would ever meet another Mr. Right for her. They talked about how he would come, and he was probably just around the corner. Soon enough, Jaime met Alan through an online dating service. When she told me about Alan, the words she used to describe him were "sweet man, good person, and adorable." I found this to be true about Alan, who is a high school teacher and long time high school swim coach (which, by the way, he is insanely loved by his students--group after group came to get photos with him the whole reception, and the students did a special cheer with him towards the end--it was so cute!) I found Jaime to be very loving and nurturing, sweet, kind, smiley and incredibly friendly and bubbly. I'm positive there isn't a person in the world who wouldn't believe that Jaime wasn't their friend.
I really enjoyed getting to know Jaime and Alan and their kind families. I love the connections I am able to make with brides and grooms and their families. I say it all the time and I'll say it again, I have the best job in the world! Thanks for letting me be a part of your special day Jaime and Alan!
