OK, so 11 years ago Gerry Thaxton met our very own Ben Wight at the mall. They worked together, they became fast friends, and they have many many many memories together. They were dear friends through some very difficult times in their lives and our essentially brothers. Gerry also met a sweet little 17 year old girl named Sarah at the mall that very same time. Fast forward 11 years to the date (they got married on a Wednesday to make it their anniversary. :)) and Gerry and Sarah got married, and little Ben Wight was their photographer. You love it already.
I really hope you know Ben if you’re reading this. If you don’t, let me assure you he’s the most loyal, generous, kind, deep, forgiving, funny, all around gem of a human being. Legit everyone loves the kid. He’s a doll. Gerry is aaaaabsolutely the very same way. He’s by a very long shot one of the nicest dudes I’ve ever met in my life. Sarah? Fuck. Sarah is so INSANELY GORGEOUS, so sweet, so gentle and loving and nurturing and giving and fun and sweet and supportive and patient. She’s a wonderful human being.
Their wedding was one of the best we’ve ever photographed ever. It was totally gorgeous, of course, because they’re super stylish and rad and all their friends chipped in and made this whole North African theme. Gorgeous. It was at The Villa in East Bridgwater, but it could have been in a back hallway and it still would have been the best. Gerry and Sarah are so in love and such best friends and so grew up together that it was a legit water works bawl fest during their ceremony. These two have dreamed of this day since they were teenagers and they’re almost 30 years old now. Sobbing.
I have to stop typing. Let’s look at some photos. There’s way too many, I couldn’t narrow it down.
GERRY AND SARAH, WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We love you we love you we love you WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!
