The weather forecast said rain. Lots and lots of rain.
And we had sunshine.. Lots and lots of beautiful sunshine.
The day could not have been more perfect. Although it started out with a few showers in the morning, the day turned out to be one of the most beautiful I have seen. The rain brought in a cool breeze and the sun came shining through the greenery surrounding the hotel. Everything seemed to fall into place in what seemed to be perfect timing.
Patsy and Bill are two of the most genuine, respected, and truly fun-loving couples I have ever met. Their strength and maturity blend perfectly with their joyful hearts. Their day was surrounded by loved ones, of whom I could quickly tell cared deeply and empathetically with the two. While there were plenty of intimate, tearful moments, there was also plenty of laughter that filled each part of the day. I believe this was the clearest picture to me of Patsy and Bill's attitudes. The way they feel deeply, love wholeheartedly and laugh unapologetically.
When it came closer to the ceremony the sun was shining through the tree, where they would soon stand, almost majestically...it was quite the site. Patsy looked through the window of the room all the girls were getting ready in, and viewed the courtyard where the ceremony would take place. With the sun shining through and the skies becoming bluer by the second, Kelsey, the makeup artist, told Patsy, "That's your dad."
Patsy's dad was with her that day, and everyday.
What a special wedding we were able to be a part of. I cannot tell you all the times I had to wipe away some tears, but also the times where I shared a good laugh or a warm hug. Patsy and Bill, you have made an impact on us more than you know, and we cherish every memory shared together. We wish you nothing but the best on this new journey!
