Rebecca met Jonathan years ago, but they didn’t start talking to one another until they started serving together in the young adult ministry at their church. Jonathan proposed to Rebecca during a family vacation in Vancouver, British Columbia last year on the 4th of July at Stanley Park.

The couple had their wedding at the gorgeous THE BELL TOWER ON 34TH. It was the first venue they saw and loved, and nothing else could compare to it.
What was even note beautiful was the vision Rebecca + Jonathan had for their wedding. They wanted it to be God-honoring and shared their three favorite parts of the wedding day: 1) the worship, 2) saying our personal vows to each other, and 3) celebrating the day with our family and friends.

Thank you, Rebecca + Jonathan for having me be your wedding photographer and for allowing me to witness and capture this joyous occasion for you and your families.

Ingredients:

2 cups Balsamic Vinegar
3 whole Ripe Tomatoes, Sliced Thick
12 ounces, weight Mozzarella Cheese, Sliced Thick
Fresh Basil Leaves
Olive Oil, For Drizzling
Kosher Salt And Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Preparation Instructions:

1. In a small saucepan, bring balsamic vinegar to a boil over medium-low heat. Cook for 10 to 20 minutes, or until balsamic has reduced to a thicker glaze. Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl or cruet. Allow to cool.
2. When you’re ready to serve, arrange tomato and mozzarella slices on a platter. Arrange basil leaves between the slices. Drizzle olive oil over the top of the salad, getting a little bit on each slice. Do the same with the balsamic reduction, making designs if you want. Store extra balsamic reduction in fridge for a later use.
3. End with a sprinkling of kosher salt and black pepper. Serve as a lunch, with crusty bread. Or serve alongside a beef main course for dinner.
