What I Believe
I believe in being classic and elegant because those two things will always be in style. I believe in family heirlooms like the sapphire ring your grandmother gives you on your wedding day that you will one day pass on to your own granddaughter. One day, when our loved ones are gone, those precious heirlooms will be all we have left to remind us of the love that was shared. I believe in history and that it should be preserved because there are so many lessons to be learned from the past. I especially believe in preserving your own personal history. My desire is for your grandchildren to one day look at your wedding album and think, "Wow, I hope I can have a love like that."
I believe in the small, simple pleasures that life has to offer like catching fireflies on a summer evening or sipping coffee from my front porch rocking chair because those small, in-between moments are where the magic of life happens and where the memories are made. I believe in the power of emotions. If you cry on your wedding day, it's alright. Getting swept away in the emotions means that you are fully present, body and soul, in the moment. I believe in capturing real, raw moments as they unfold. Life is so fleeting, and those moments deserved to be captured and frozen in time. I believe in Southern hospitality and treating those around you with kindness.
I believe in romances just like that of "Noah and Allie" where you're fiery and passionate because that is the kind of love I am privileged to know. I believe your marriage is more important then your wedding. Plan for wedding, plan it beautifully, but plan for an even more beautiful marriage because love is what will carry you through the ups and downs of life.
