As Anna’s dad spoke about how important the gathering of the families was, his voice, heavy with emotion, broke as he looked to his daughter and his new son and raised his glass in honor of the bride & groom and the coming together of two families to be one. In that very moment, you would have had to search hard to find a dry eye in the room. It spoke volumes to the happiness of the day; the kind of happiness that doesn’t happen without an outward demonstration of emotion. The kind of happiness that doesn’t happen unless a day – or in this case, a couple – is the absolute definition of perfection. Not perfect in deed but certainly perfect for each other.
Anna & Chad. I’m not even sure I have the words for how much I loved your wedding day. From the snickers & Jo Malone in the bridal suite to Brady & Moke’s appearance on your wedding cake, the day could not have been more fun and most importantly, 100% you guys; even down to the hops in the floral arrangements. You two are something entirely special and it’s nearly a certainty that I have started to mourn the fact that I won’t have a specific purpose to see you both on a regular basis. So. Maybe keep an eye on your suitcases for the cruise. Or don’t. I’d be ok with that. xo
