Before write a single word, I want to thank David and Luke Edmonson for documenting this glorious day for us in such a heartfelt, sensitive way. The photographs are impeccable, outrageously beautiful, and hand crafted. Even more than that, though, they’re full of the love we felt that day, authentic, and brimming with life. You are kindred spirits, and two of the most tender-hearted, truly aware photographers I know. These images are precious to us, and we are so grateful for you both.
I can say with absolute confidence that our wedding was the happiest, richest, most joyful day of my life. I married the man of my dreams, the one my soul has longed for all my life. He is my soulmate, and we are intertwined, and inseparable. I have never known joy like this, I really didn’t know life could even be like this. He is my truest companion, and my lifelong best friend. He is smart, strong, vibrant, life-loving, adventurous, trustworthy, spirited, funny, honest, full of integrity, resilient, gentle, romantic, compassionate, loving, giving, understanding, patient, incredibly kind, motivated, faithful, dedicated, hard working, sentimental, courageous, spontaneous, perceptive, tender hearted, loyal, steady, passionate, energetic, and, of course, irresistibly handsome. I still can’t believe I got to marry this man, and that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.
Our wedding day was sweet, breezy, lighthearted, and full of love. It was a perfect September evening, brilliant and beautiful. We were surrounded by our families and closest friends, a gorgeous desert garden, gentle music, and lots of yummy food. It was the loveliest, most romantic day; peaceful, thoughtful. I married the love of my life with ultimate joy, a peaceful, restful, confident heart, with the support of those who mean so much to me. I can’t have asked for a more wonderful, honest, sentimental, unforgettable day.
