Family is everything… that’s a saying that I couldn’t relate to for a long time. I come from a broken family, and my mom is all the family I’ve had. There were times when she wasn’t there either and I was handed from place to place. But, God does miracles and even though my family didn’t look ideal or perfect, my mom’s remarriage saved us.
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.
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.
There are many things that sparks a memory in our lives. Music, places, a certain smell even… With Shayla + Gregory’s wedding, their venue made me remember Craig and I’s 10th anniversary. I’m sure you’re thinking, “Oh my… if you remember your 10th, how long have you been married?” lol This February was our 13th year, and as much as you can’t believe it, I can’t either.
Knowing that God is an all knowing, omnipotent God, I know and trust that there’s no such thing as “coincidence” or “accident”. Everything has a reason… every encounter we have has a purpose. Sometimes we feel like that we will never meet someone ever again or have any relation to that individual, but you know what?
