9 years to the day. which is why they got married on a thursday.
i went back to our original correspondence, as it took place nearly a year ago, to remind myself what they had shared. amanda spoke about being private and soft-spoken and the desire to create a celebration that would really reflect them and their personalities. they wanted to plan it for their anniversary and include family and a few close friends so that it could be an informal time of eating good food and having a fun time. when we met, there was an instant connection and as we talked, these things were reiterated and i started to get more and more excited to be a part of this beautiful moment in amanda & sarad’s journey. now having witnessed their day, i can honestly say i believe they achieved what they set out to.
i love that they spent the morning together, everyone at sarad’s house, getting ready, eating food, sharing laughter. it was such a sweet glimpse into the uniting not only of two hearts, but of two families.
