A long time ago in a church far away (by the standard of 200 years ago) there was a wedding performed, which happened to involve a good friend of mine, Jordan Ogren. As the story goes (because I was in college, away from everything going on that was important, go figure) Jordan managed to get a first date.
Then another date.
And finally carry those dates full circle.
I’ve known Jordan for several years, he got me my first job, encouraged me in my photography, been a friend, and helped me through quite a few of my own photographic and life wanderings. Alyson I’ve known less, one of those I heard more of than from. Regardless, together, they’re more than they are apart.
I now present the now married-for-two-months Jordan and Alyson Ogren!
About a month I had the pleasure of flying down to Virginia and Patrick Henry College, meeting up with some relatives I haven’t seen in over 8 years, and had the most AMAZING time surprising my sister who didn’t know I was coming. It’s one of those things that run in the family I think, over the years there have been occasions where one family will plan out a surprise family reunion, or show up when the other person isn’t expecting. The entire trip itself had been in the works for about a month, with not-so-sneaky planning calls between my parents and long discussions about possible ways of getting the incredulous look on her face that we were looking for.
It was an amazing weekend, I had the opportunity to see my sister, her now fiance Derek (Which I also heartily approve of), and my family. What more could you ask for?
