for my friends / by jen geigley

These are my sweet and beautiful friends Shana and Jared, holding their tiny boy wonder, Atticus. Atticus was delivered 4 months premature in January and weighed just 1 pound, 10.4 ounces. For insurance purposes, Shana and Jared got married 5 days later by a judge with little family present. And, sadly, 25 days later, Atticus passed. This little family has been through a lot. To say they're strong is an understatement.

In their own words: 'So much has happened in the last two months in the wrong order and the wrong way, but the one perfect part was our time with our little Atticus. We'd like to honor his life as we finally get to celebrate how happy and strong we are as a couple.'

Shana and Jared's friends have nominated them to win an ultimate wedding from Crate and Barrel. And I cannot think of two people who deserve it more.
