Today was a crazy day of meetings and photo shoots.
The greatest part of the day is meeting great clients with wonderful stories of love, and they are just plain awesome. I feel honored and lucky to meet such wonderful people.
I stumbled upon a note from a bride who won the Wedding in a Week on Facebook:
Well we won for those of you who don’t know we won the Ft. Collins Wedding in a week contest. It was such a whirl wind of an event and we were so blessed by each person who voted for us, the vendors who donated services to us and to the people who we were able to invited and who could make it on such short notice.
Everyday that week we had appointments, errands to run and me traveling back and forth so I could be with my students a little more that week. Thursday we had amazing rehearsal and dinner put on by Kev’s family and then Friday it all happened so fast. I had to be on TV on Friday morning and then I did hair and make-up. Then we decided to have the revealing moment of Kev and I seeing each other for the first time at The Oval on the CSU campus because then we could have more pictures taken. We were so blessed to work with Sarah from www.sarahchristinephotography.com she does an amazing job with photos and she makes it fun. Then we parted ways and waited to get married at The Tapestry House in LaPorte. The ceremony done by a family friend and judge was beautiful and included a moment of silence for Mia and those not with us and the sand ceremony was done with a touch of pink for our girl! Then we were able to have appetizers and drinks then off to the dancing. Our first dance Kev completed with a brilliant dip and I was able to dance with the 3 dads from the Longmont “fatherhood” and end the dance with my mom who is my guidepost in this life. Then the toasts and lots of fun followed and by the end of the evening of fun, laughs, an interpretive dance by Nate and Ben, we had had a wedding that was beyond anything we could have imagined and felt so blessed as we were whisked away to our hotel by the limo.
Love and God Bless
