When you are granted the opportunity like I am to peer into the lives of complete strangers, I am often struck that a few things will always hold true.
1. Weddings are and always will be the biggest moment of any persons life.
2. Family is important, in the end.
3. Love, above all else, always wins.
This week has been full of getting back to work, re-establishing norms and routines, and coming down from the high of Chris and JC’s wedding week.
Perhaps this blog would be more interesting if I posted the photos and videos of my clients lives- but somehow that would seem like a violation of their trust in me. So instead I will continue to blog about my life, my child, and the people in my life that effect the way I see the world. Chris and JC see a world full of color and beauty. It is them who can turn a single fabric into a design, and them who have stocked my daughters closet full of neatly pressed, nearly perfect outfits. It is also them who FINALLY gave me permission to post their happiest, most important day of love.
They designed the dresses, the tents, the lighting, the music, the day that will remain in our hearts as a beautiful reminder of the power of love. As one guest stated the beauty of their wedding was that it didn’t feel like a “gay” wedding, but rather just a wedding. Two awesome people, joining their lives together for eternity, vowing to put each other first above all others. Isn’t that what it all comes down to in the end? Don’t we all want happiness for one another and the people that we love?
I have a friend who took a chance on love. She traveled across the country in search of what she knew was true. She would tell you that her search turned out to be a bust- but I am here to tell you that it was in fact a leap. A leap of faith, an investment in a possiblitiy, a seed planted. We drop everything for the possiblity of love, we do the impossible, lay our hearts on the line, search online and in line for the one we will someday claim as our own. So yes, marriage is and should be the biggest day of your life- you finally get to stop searching. You can hold this one hand forever and yes it should be celebrated- so we celebrate Chris and Jc and the thousands of others out there. Congratulations on finding your love.
A little advice- don’t let go.
My job day in and day out is to glue the pieces of peoples lives together. The years, the memories, the moments that you never ever want to forget- I get to live in those places with my clients and that might make me the luckiest person on Earth, so thank you very much for reading, sharing, recommending, and making my life so rich with expressions of love.
