September 27th, 2011

Amy and TJ,

Your wedding was absolutely beautiful. It surpassed all of my expectations. You two were the epitome of a couple in love that day. Amy, you looked absolutely breath-taking in your dress. It fit you perfectly and no other dress would have looked as great on you as that one did. The flowers were amazing, along with every other detail. I was honored to be a part of it and to share in your happiness.

TJ, over the years, we have waited for a man to come along and love Russ as much, or more, as we do. We wanted someone who would step into that role and love him as his own son. I’ll admit, when Amy first told me about you, I was skeptical and told her not to get too attached. I didn’t want another man to come into Russ’s life, just to have him walk out again. When I met you, I knew you were that man we had been waiting for. It takes a special man to love a woman and her son. It takes an even more special man to love Amy and Russ. You do it, and you do it so indescribably well. Amy, you have found an amazing man who loves you, despite you flaws and weird quirks. I am so happy you found your match. You have been an amazing mother to Russ, now you can also be an amazing wife to TJ.

I pray that God will bless your marriage and teach you more everyday about how to love each other. Remember the quote by Bob Marley: “He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you.” This goes both ways for you. Love each other for who they are and don’t try to change any of them. God created you just as you are for each other. I love you both! Congratulations on finding the one who is perfect for you and for becoming a happy family!

Love you lots!

Katy

First look…

I love reflections and this one made me emotional to see….

 

One of the emotional moments of the day was when TJ’s father presented his father’s wedding ring to TJ.

 

 

Did we mention we loved reflections?!  Here, all the ladies are being driven to the ceremony site.
