Let me start this post this way: It feels SO GOOD to be part of a family. This is how Jon and Betty made us feel for the entire process from when we first met to their wedding day and beyond. That being said, it is simple to understand why they so belong together! Their generous heart and kind personalities are hard to find. Then add hotness, nerd traits for Pikachu chasing, Japan travel bugs and LOTS of LOVE for each other as toppings, and voila! You got the perfect recipe for how #couplesgoals should be!
Even though we only met last year, thru our dearests Michelle and Patrick Gamer Wedding, Betty and Jon have grown on my heart fondly and I can be finding beautiful words to express this all day, but I already running at the risk of getting sappy here, so lets move on to the most beautiful wedding at The Baltimore Museum of Industry I have ever witnessed.
Jon & Betty had chosen their wedding ceremony at the heart of Baltimore, and their family and friends made sure to shower them with love and great dance moves. Check it out by yourself, below with their beautiful wedding photos.
