Every Friday in the sixth grade was given a theme: pajama day, 80's day (a personal favorite), and Twin Day, to name a few. Twin Day was announced and people began finding their twin right away; I was new and nervous but spotted a friendly face and worked up the courage to ask Jessica to be my twin for this silly middle school ritual. As I was walking up to her though, she was intercepted by another new girl, Carolyn... it was really something right out of a teen tv drama. I'm almost positive I heard melodramatic music as I hung my head and walked away. [Side note: my way cooler older sister came through for me; I was the only sixth grader who's twin was in the high school].
Fast forward thirteen years -- braces, bangs, boyfriends, driver's licenses, prom, graduation and lots of good memories -- Carolyn was a bridesmaid and I had the privilege of capturing Jessica's beautiful wedding!
Jessica and Brandon were married in Chattanooga on a beautiful fall day last October. She looked stunning in her elegant a-line gown; it's obvious that Brandon thought so too by the way he looked at her all afternoon. The two whispered to each other the entire day and as a result were constantly giggling. Jessica is a hardcore Tennessee fan while Brandon's loyalty belongs to Alabama. As you can imagine, football season results in some pretty entertaining facebook photos of the couple.
Thank you for allowing me to share in your special day, Jessica and Brandon - may you have lots of happiness and peace in the years to come. And may your babies never be without a twin for Twin Day.
