Silence. Pure silence. As she walked toward the altar. Not a dry eye in the room. This was the first time he would see her all in white, wrapped in her dad’s arm, walking his way. It was the moment they had imagined for years. All coming down to this. The moment the preacher would ask, “Who gives this woman to this man,” and Mr. May would step in and say, “Her mother and I.”
She would squeeze him. Gently. But fiercely. Her dad – the first man she ever loved. The one she looked up to, learned from, and loved whole-heartedly, was giving her away. But Mr. May knew, without a doubt in his mind, that the man waiting on the other side, was worthy of his daughter’s fragile heart. He proudly unwrapped her hand and then shook his hand and offering up a soft smile, went back down to sit next to his wife.
These are the moments to live for. Authentic love. True love. Beautiful and raw. When you know without a shadow of a doubt, that this is worth waiting for. This is worth fighting for.
Jordan and Tersen,
Thank you for letting us be a part of your day. It was filled with so much love and laughter, so many moments that struck a feeling so deep down inside that we couldn’t help but feel like a part of the family. Continue living each moment with just as much joy and anticipation as you felt moments before walking down the aisle and with as much pride as walking out of the church as Mr. and Mrs. Let no day pass without cherishing the now and the gift God has so graciously placed in front of you; hand picked, just for you.
We wish you nothing but the absolute best life has to offer, and we can’t wait to watch your love continue to grow.
Here’s to you both, the new Mr. and Mrs. Arnold!
All Our Best,
Rachel + Rebecca
