9 Feb

amy-chris-3-blogIt’s easy to become all consumed with trivial details in the quest for a perfect wedding day.  Yes getting married is a huge deal and it should be a wonderful experience.  However, what makes it perfect isn’t food and flowers, but special people and fleeting moments.  The ability to be present and really appreciate that shared time with loved ones is what makes the wedding experience truly spectacular.  However, it’s a hard thing to do and I am always surprised when I see it happen.

The days leading up to this wedding were amy-chris-2-blogfilled with love as this bride and groom stocked every bedroom at the ocean front house with special treats for honored guests.  Handmade signs denoting each couple’s room framed the doors.  About an hour before the ceremony was set to begin the groom headed to the living room greeting his guests with warm hugs and a cold beers.  We started a bit late due to a slight mishap with the cake, but some creative friends rallied to the occasion to the sweet sound of the bride’s praises.  Cocktail hour was also a bit delayed due to extended well wishes and extra photo time will all attendees, but the bride and groom didn’t seem to mind.  After all, how often are you surround by so many special people in your life?
