The first time I met with Michelle to talk about her and Bethany’s wedding, Bethany couldn’t make. She had been called in on a SWAT call. Usually this would justify rescheduling, but Michelle, not wanting to inconvenience anyone, went ahead and met with me. I didn’t realize it at the time, but this was defining of who they were as people – selfless, generous, and kind.
Nothing about their wedding was cookie cutter or typical. From their sunrise ceremony to their nerf gun exit, every moment was a reflection of the fun-loving, full-of-life brides. And every second was a celebration – of their love, of the journey that lead them to each other, and of their life to come. As I packed up my gear at the end of the night, I was overwhelmed with a sense of gratitude that we got to be a part of such a beautiful day in such wonderful people’s lives.
Michelle and Bethany – we love you. We love your marriage. We can’t wait to see what adventure your life together holds!
