He swept me off my feet when I met him two years ago, and he’s done it every day since. I got to marry my best friend and soulmate on May 11, and the weather gods smiled down on us long enough to take our first photos at the #JeffersonMemorial, my favorite monument. The rain didn’t move in until later. They claim it’s good luck. But either way, I’m now a lucky wife to @eurythmickingofnowhere. #adamsaysjess Photo credit to the incredible @genevieveleiperphotography
