Jovie and Pia’s Wedding

Shangri-La at the Fort wedding 01

We shot their engagement session, their Ting Hun, and their wedding. There is a stillness to Jovie and Pia’s love that draws us in again and again. It’s a quiet kind of love, without drama or hype. It’s solid and steady, secure and unwavering in its truth.

I will always carry a soft spot for every father of the bride because I grew up a daddy’s girl. But there was a deep and immense joy to the groom’s mother here as she danced with her son that continues to tug at my heart something fantastic.

Jeff and I have a five year old son, and I have been dancing with him even before he could walk. Sometimes when the right song comes on, I take his little hand in mine and we dance. I spin him around and around, he giggles madly, and my heart feels like it’s going to burst. In twenty years or so, when he is grown and has found the one he wants to spend the rest of his life with, that will be me, the groom’s mother. I will weep at some point, I know this. But I hope to be as happy as Jovie’s mother was in that moment, dancing with her son on his wedding day.

Jovie and Pia, thank you for the trust and for letting us join you in this journey of yours to marriage. Much love, always.
