Jill + Andrew Fortson / west chicago, IL

When I think of Jill, I am immediately happy. She has always made me laugh, ever since we were children. Always doing impersonations that would leave me crying and always asking for more. Jill is the funniest person I know and I tell everyone this. Jill is the most faithful of friends. As you can see from her wedding party, her friends are lifelong friends. This is a rare thing to find and I am so lucky to have her friendship. She has been with me through the darkest of moments and the most joyful and exciting of times. Jill is the perfect balance of realist and dreamer. She keeps me grounded, while also allowing and encouraging me to dream and create. We have shared a similar struggle in career choices, deciding between money or passion. We have a shared love of art, music, food and aesthetics. These are the things that have bonded us together through many moves, jobs, people, and places. It was through these shared passions that Drew came into the picture. It was a time in our lives when we were all wanting to grow artistically but feeling stuck in our current careers. The perfect trio began to form between the sisters d’art and Abelle. I can recall countless stories from this time which included our newly forming Nashville family as well. So many of the people here today are from those few years when we all wanted so desperately to create. Trent Dabbs and Matthew Perryman Jones were a huge inspiration during this time and continue to be. It is exciting to see their role in our lives from distant inspirations to dear friends. Drew, I could go on for hours with the stories of our times together. From our first photoshoot in the alley, countless drives between Nashville and Chicago, travelng together with the TOT gange, sharing new music, laughing about the adventures of Abelle and Ello. We have a unique bond as brother and sister in law that I cherish. I love you and am so happy that you are my brother. It is so amazing to have a sister and brother in law that appreciate and share similar passions. It makes the journey that much more sweet. Music is the connecting factor between us all. There is an excitement to be a part of the music community and create together. Cheers to a beautiful couple and a shared life of creating together! -Maid of Honor Speech
