He’ll tell you, “I just thought of the best possible person I could be with, and the best woman I knew was Lea.”
She’ll tell you, “I never even thought of him that way.”**
And I’ll tell you, it’s a special kind of thing to catalog the starting day in marriage of two people you adore. I loved her at once, immensely. And then he came, and I fell in love with him in precisely one night. Akin to exactly who they are as people, they got married in simplicity, whole heartedly surrounded by people who were truly and intimately interwoven into the seams of their lives.
**some things change over time, we hope..
Funny how thunderstorms with buckets and buckets of water will derail your plans to shoot outdoors. Also funny how they’ll land you right in the spot that meant the most. The place where they met. The place where he asked her out. The place where she said I’ll pray about it (the only Christian to ever really mean it) and then tripped over that chair.
Ceremony starts. And those flower girls, they do what they want.
Never have you ever experienced smiles and laughter so full.
An epitome to the fullness of the way they live their lives, with the people and the Lord they love held in such high regard.
On your wedding day, if you want good food, hire a good caterer. If you want good photographs, consider good lighting and working with a professional. But, at the center, THIS is what a wedding is all about. Celebrating and full heartedly declaring how much you love your person in the presence of the people who matter to you. Celebrating not only everything you both are and will be from then on, but also the people who helped get you there. So, make it pretty, plan your heart out, but when it comes.
Make some time to be with your lover.
Have a drink (or don’t).
And savor the hell out it.
And P.S. If you want to have a damn good party, hire this band.
