|He stood alone and faced two double doors, the whole of his future waiting just on the other side. He held a handwritten card with her name on it, and a seal on the back just to keep it a little extra safe. To keep it protected between just the two of them. He buttoned and re-buttoned his jacket. Was reminded of the hand-tailored rule, always, sometimes, never. And as every second seemed to drag on and on and stretch out toward forever, he stood waiting for the prize of a lifetime somewhere behind door number two.
They stood together and faced one another, the whole of their future waiting just on the other side. He held a ring in his hand with her name on it, and put an arm around the small of her back just to keep her a little extra safe. To keep this moment protected between just the two of them. He heard and repeated his vows. Was reminded of the hand-tailored rule. always, sometimes, never. Always love her. Sometimes, even when you're right, be the first to say you're sorry. And never ever let her go. And as the seconds blurred by faster and faster and they were announced into forever, he stood in awe at this prize of a lifetime together.
And was suddenly so grateful....for door number two.
Married: Lauren & Anthony
Lauren & Anthony were married at the absolutely spectacular Saltwater Farm Vineyard on a day that was cut from the same cloth. Together with their closest friends & family, they celebrated, they hugged, they loved, and they started a life off right. Every detail of the day was executed to flawless perfection with help from the amazing event staff from Gourmet Galley. The blooms provided by Hana Floral Design were nothing short of jaw dropping. And at the end of the night when we hugged them goodbye, I was reminded with a flood of absolute certainty why we do what we do. L&A you guys treated us just like we were part of the party. Friends first, who also happened to have cameras. Your love is infectious, an inspiration to everyone around you. And your hearts, the way you treat people, should be an example for us all to follow. There are not enough words in all the world or the english language dictionary to express how much that means to us. And just know, that whether you counted on this or not, you now have two new friends for life! :) My hope is that you will love like this always....because really, the world needs more examples like yours.
SO much love,
