Even after her car broke down on the turnpike 30 minutes before her salon appointment, after her phone died and she couldn’t call for help, after the bakery forgot to make her cake, after storm clouds threatened to ruin the outdoor event, this beautiful lady was all smiles. Because weddings aren’t about flowers and dresses and pearly white frosting, they’re about celebrating love. And that definitely calls for smiles.

I am so grateful to have spent this day with these two beautiful souls. I wish them all of the love and kindness the world can supply.
