One of the things that I dream of doing is travel the world…. I mean they say, “It’s a small world”, but to me, it’s SO BIG at the same time. Traveling has not become a priority of mine until about 3 years ago. I was pretty much a homebody and didn’t really feel a great need to see everything.
Integrity, honor, morality…. you don’t hear about words like these too often these days. And, it’s even harder to find those who possess these and act upon them. But, not Jessica + Joel… they’re of a higher standard. Getting to know couples like them gives us so much hope for our world, for the next generation.
Just like many things in our world, trends change especially in the world of weddings. Craig and I got married over 13 years ago, and back then, most of us had our weddings during the day. Our ceremony time was 11am! It’s just unheard of these days… Now, the majority of weddings are in the evenings and the reception go til late night.
Through our business, we get to mete our couples. And through our couples and their weddings, we get to meet other wedding professionals. Other wedding vendors are crucial to how a wedding day will flow for us. Working at a wedding is unique in that sometimes, you don’t know who you will have to work with until the day comes.
Ten years…. an entire decade. I remember when we reached this milestone. It was a big deal because it is! I absolutely love celebrating special milestones, and I love people who do the same. You should never just let it pass by. Yes, life does fly by because in our society, we all live our lives too busy.
I remember when my mom used to always say to me, “One day, you’ll understand.” I’m sure that every mother has said that to their kids, and what’s ironic is that I’m saying that to mine now too. Yes, I do understand now. I’m sure there are even more things that I’ll soon understand, but as I get older, I’m “getting it” more and more.
Words are powerful. It can literally uplift or destroy someone. God created this world with his words… nothing else. In the same way, God gave us the power in our tongues; hence, what we say must be taken seriously. I begin with this because encouraging words is what we received from Consuella + Robert.
The way someone chooses to spend their time, effort and money inspires me. We have known Leo + Christianne for many years, especially Leo. Wow, now that I’m counting as I’m writing this blog, I can’t believe that it’s been 15 years. Holy cow! Craig and I knew Leo when we were all young and single. We all hung out with other mutual friends from our church.
