You guys... THE JOY. have you ever seen so much joy in your entire life at a wedding? like, we're talking uabashed, existential JOY from these two. Normally after a wedding my arms are exhausted from lifting equipment and my thighs worn out from squatting... but after this wedding my cheeks literally felt like they would fall off from laughing and smiling all day long with these two.
side note: i've NEVER been rained out of a wedding in my life. i have a 100% success rate in the past 7 years. only twice did it rain on a wedding day- but we still had an outdoor wedding before the rain came. This wedding there was a 100% chance of rain and - no joke- a TORNADO WARNING. for an all-outdoor wedding. I played it off all cool and calm on the outside but inside i was freaking out.
i thought for sure this was going to be the wedding that broke my 7 year lucky streak, but while the rain threatened and the wind blew.... by the time the ceremony happened the sun came out from behind the clouds and gave us the most beautiful weather. glorious!
