When I tell people to have the wedding that THEY want and not the one others want them to have, Mitchell and Justin's always comes to mind. Every aspect of the wedding reflected their values and their commitment to holding onto them. They wanted to emphasize the role that family and friends have played in their lives, and so we ensured that the ceremony made significant reference to them. That included paying respect to those who could only join us in spirit, and on the hallowed grounds of the estate where we gathered, I really believe they did. Every breeze through the trees lent assurance that the married couple-to-be had the blessing of those they've ever held dear. That in turn brought all of the guests together, and everyone contributed to that blessing. It was both calming and empowering, and we moved on with the ceremony with our confidence fortified, and hearts full.
