I’m pretty sure that the way I’m about to tell JT & Gerda's story with my words just won’t do it justice, so hang in there.
I struggle to describe something on paper, but these guys deserve the most loving of adjectives. They show so much love and affection to each other constantly.
I always take something nice from weddings (NO NOT THE TABLE DECORATIONS OR PUPPIES) and this time I took a memory of one of the most beautiful moments of their wedding day.
This is when JT struggled to get his bearings while saying a few words to his blushing bride. I can't remember all of it but he ended off with... "Gerda, you under estimate yourself my darling" which Gerda replied to with a teary eyed smile.
This struck me, not because it was the most beautiful words in the world, but because only they knew what he was referring to, that was their moment and their moment only.
We met up the day before their wedding, to chat, hang in nature, and have a few drinks with the family down by the lake. After spending the following 2 days together, we said goodbye with an absolute feast of a party and a very unexpected, lets pick Blanche up while we say goodbye and swing her around to say thank you moment.
Their wedding day was that little more personal than your usual wedding as they were getting married on Gerda's family farm. They had to drive everything in from the big city, her father made the benches, her sister made her bouquet and every single one had their part to play.
Even the rain had her part on the day, but she was more than welcome.
