You bring your true self to the table, the wedding altar, the photo shoot. Airs and facades don’t interest you in the slightest. You’ll wear your favorite colors, dance your dorky dance, smile your crooked smile, and most importantly love on your person from your heart. You’re not afraid to let anyone—especially not your photographer—see a little glimpse of your beautiful soul.
You strive to love your neighbor as yourself and value people above the petty things. At the end of the day, you cling most tightly to human connections. You aren’t looking for just another vendor, but a friend who loves you, dreams your dreams with you, generously shares knowledge and resources, lifts you up, and wholeheartedly celebrates your marriage to come.
You crave the raw, the real, and the natural—and not just in your relationship. You are the kind of couple whose favorite dates mean barefoot walks on the beach at sunset, stargazing in the sand, or long hikes to Nowhere-In-Particular. Come rain, shine, or in-between. Come clear skies, windblown hair, or mud flecks on your dress and dancing in a downpour.
You know that when the last song plays and the wedding ends, the true journey of marriage begins. And what a beautiful and worthwhile journey it is. All your planning and preparing culminates in this moment— when you leave the reception as man and wife to build a life together that glorifies God, for better or worse. The wedding is one beautiful day; marriage is your heart’s desire and high calling.
