( wedding: jennifer & adrian )

a storybook love.  a canadian tale.  a woman with strength / courage / selfless wholehearted joy falls in love with a kind / gentle / equally strong / teacher of the game we all hold close to our hearts in this northern place we call home.  

i cry every single time i hear the national anthem. and if it happens to be sung in real life by someone on an ice rink before the puck drops... watch out. i am a crying mess.

hockey is iconic across the canadian landscape.  it's personal.  it is a game played by all of the men (and a couple women) in the wood family. and a game loved and played professionally by one of my very best girlfriends growing up.

jennifer is an incredibly accomplished hockey player.  i melted into the floor the day she came into the studio.  i admire her. and it turns out that not only is she INCREDIBLY accomplished (olympic gold x3 / world champion x5 / harvard graduate... ), she is one of the kindest and most loving people i've ever met.  she is tender and sweet. she is beautiful.  and her love for adrian is wholehearted.
