WANDERING OAKS WEDDING VENUE | Michael, Lauren & Ava
“Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute - even when the waters get deep, and dark.”
From the minute I spoke on the phone with this stunning couple, I loved them! Both so very authentic and COMPLETELY their "beautiful" selves, my hubby (AKA "The Sweet" AKA my favorite second shooter), who is a man of very few words and does not give praise or compliments easily, kept commenting about the amazing connection these two share. I cannot tell you how many times I looked over at them enjoying a joke, or deep in conversation whilst they ate, whilst they danced, whilst they celebrated!!!! The joy of documenting such goodness .......
Michael, Lauren & Ava! What a joy!!!! Thank you so very much for the incredible honor of choosing us as documenter of your beautiful day! The weather, the venue, the food, the lights, the dogs (I've decided I'm not going to sue ... LOL!!!! (I'm busy laughing out loud at my screen right now), your amazing friends and family - your day was SUCH a gift to my soul!
May God bless every second of your beautiful lives together!!!
Nikki & "The Sweet" AKA Brian (and other descriptive words that I shouldn't type - LOL)
