Much of my job is being an observer. I find it incredibly inspiring to spend such an intimate day with people, to see their relationships, their community and the culmination of two lives coming together. Shortly after I arrived, Jerry sent Madison a gift via one of his groomsmen, and as soon as his groomsmen returned, he wanted a full report on her reaction to it, not just "did she like it", but "did she love it, how did she respond while she opened it, was it a meaningful gift to her?" (this is my paraphrasing, not an actually Jerry quote). It was a beautiful moment outside of all of the busyness of a wedding day.
