Long story short, my grandmother Ruth and Jerry were married on Tuesday. They met at Cumberland Village in Aiken and were wed at Millbrook Baptist Church in Aiken. This all went down at 2pm. My girlfriend and I were the only ones present, besides the pastor. My grandmother and Jerry wanted to keep things simple and low-key. For those that don’t know, my grandmother raised me since I was a baby. Effectively, she is whom I call mom and grandma. I believe I was only four weeks (or four months) old when she became my mother. I love her and am forever thankful. It was so great to spend a couple hours photographing for her and Jerry (and for the rest of our families). July is the busiest time of the year for me, so to have the free-time to witness and record such a wedding is such a blessing. I hope you enjoy these as much as we did. Check back in a day or two for the video (if I can ever figure out how to upload it).

Here’s their video!
