The beauty of marriage isn’t in the glitz, the glamour, or the extravagance of the wedding day. It’s not in the beautiful white dress, or the handpicked flowers carefully transformed into a work of art. It’s not in the music, or the composition of the photos, or the handwritten calligraphy that invites friends and family to join the celebration. The beauty of marriage isn’t found in the scrumptious sugary cake, or even the perfect dream venue.
So why do wedding vendors do what we do? If marriage isn’t about any of that… the photography, the flowers, the gown… why do we do it?
Because we love people.
We love to celebrate you, because the commitment you’re making isn’t one to be made out of whimsy. It’s a life-changing, forever, vow— the most selfless act of love that a person could show to another human being. The beauty of marriage is in the promise that two imperfect people make to each other: to love one another through every trial, through every mistake. To love that person more than themselves, so their spouse can feel love like they have never experienced before. Marriage promises to love through the imperfections. The beauty of marriage is giving up two single lives to create one beautiful adventure.
And so we celebrate! As wedding vendors, we value marriage and strive every weekend to bestow upon it the respect and honor it deserves. On your wedding day, we want you to feel your most special, your most valuable, so that when your marriage gets messy (because trust us, it will be messy sometimes), you will remember the joy and strength that you felt on your wedding day and be reminded why you said “I do” in the first place.
If you’re planning your wedding, we want to help celebrate your marriage with as much love and excellence as we can muster. We want to walk alongside you from the planning process, to the moment you walk down the aisle, and later share your first dance. We’ll be there encouraging you, rejoicing with you, and taking care of absolutely everything so that all you have to think about is the thing that that really matters—your new marriage, and the adventure you’re about to embark on.
Thank you to everyone who participated, especially Joel and Abby, our wonderful models who have just celebrated their second anniversary 🙂 We couldn’t have done it without you!
