Meredith and Kevin: Married on Long Island

I met Meredith and Kevin for $1.25 margaritas one evening, which is (in my opinion) the best way to get to know someone.  Turns out they met in Missouri, fell in love in New York City, moved to Kansas City, got married in Long Island, returned back to Kansas City, and are moving back to New York City later this summer. And beneath that whirlwind,  I found was a dear couple with heart and soul, commitment, steadiness and grace.  So I couldn’t wait to walk into this day – eyes wide open – ready to witness them at the start of their family story.

 

What did I see?  Horses, organic vegetable stands, wineries, wind that wouldn’t cooperate with the Chuppa setup, close knit friends, closer knit families, a Hora (always the best), and at the center: these two dear souls.
What an honor to be there.  What an honor to know them. Meet Meredith and Kevin.

Tacos and Tequila forever : Abby and Will Married in Jacksonville

I walked into the bride’s home and saw a calligraphy’d wall hanging in the entryway.  For some reason, this caught my eye and I read it – a gift from Carter and Debra’s wedding in 1984.  I stared for quite some time and it gripped me.  This was the start of their family’s history and again, this job had us treading into a family’s history and a day that we don’t have any business being a part of.  Someone’s only daughter was married off on this day and that fact alone blows my hair back.  Her name is Abby –  and she married Will.

This was a beautiful day.  The beach. The tacos. The close knit community.  And afterward, what remained was a sense that each time we step into a wedding day like this, we tread on holy ground.
