John sat down at a keyboard and took a deep breath. For months he’d been composing a song to surprise his bride. As he began to sing, everyone fell silent. Love poured out of him with every note. There wasn’t a dry eye left.

John’s very first act as Emily’s husband was not just a song – it was a display of his creativity, talent, endless dedication, and courage. It was a total outpouring of affection for her in one giant romantic gesture. They’ll hold onto that memory for a lifetime.

Scroll down to see that unforgettable moment and so many others from John and Emily’s cozy Autumn celebration at Sapphire Creek Winery.

John & Emily – Your unconditional, unwavering love is such a treasure. Thank you for allowing me to witness it and document it for you. May that love continue to grow deeper and bolder with each day of your lives together. – Love, Kate
