Being around Lisa and Jake makes me want to live life better.  From my experience knowing them for a year, Lisa and Jake are two people who make life what they want it to be.  They travel well, they have deep caring friendships, they give generously.  Lisa is a ray of sunshine.  I first talked with her over the phone when I was a brand new mom and very sleep deprived.  She so gracious with me in that early absentmindedness and continues to treat me as an honored friend rather than a wedding vendor.  I met Jake the week of the wedding, but immediately he impressed me.  He is surrounded by lifetime friends, and he even started an annual golf tournament to raise money for families battling cancer and the fundraiser has become a really well known annual event.

Here is a taste Lisa and Jake, more coming your way by the end of the day!

Lisa was so sweet with her parents, really taking care of them before herself all day.  I love this moment because mom always put her hands together like this when she laughed.
