You know how when you’re in the wedding industry, you meet so many couples and hear hundreds of stories, it’s hard to remember details? Well, this is one story that stuck with me from day one. Not only because Rod has always referred to Linda as “the boss lady” from the get go which I never forgot, but because these two are living the dream of getting a second chance at love. Everyone’s has had a love lost, and the chances of getting it back is little to none when time has passed you by.

Linda and Rod met in middle school and were high school sweethearts. The two lost touch, and later, roughly 21 years from when they first met, they connect once again. This time, with their closest family and friends, they seal the deal in a beautiful vineyard wedding in Temecula.

This wedding was a serious tear-jerker; there was not a dry eye during the ceremony and speeches. I’m so honored to have been picked to document this day. Make sure you scroll to the bottom to see their slideshow! I thought the song was appropriate for this occasion :)
