She looked radiant sitting on the porch with some old friends as she got her makeup done. Music from her iPhone played softly and kids could be heard chattering away inside. The morning sun poked through the birch trees and I caught her eye and smiled. Today was the day my sweet friend Laurie would marry the love of her life. Tears welled up in my eyes and I quickly moved around gathering shoes and details to photograph to keep myself from losing it so soon in the day. The rest of the wedding day, I had to keep myself busier than normal so as to not be that weird photographer girl who couldn’t stop crying happy tears. I was over the moon happy for Kurt and Laurie, and everyone else felt the exact same. The atmosphere surrounding them and their loved ones was overwhelming! And now, from the perspective of someone who loves Kurt and Laurie dearly….. here is the story of their wedding day….
A rare sight to behold for sure…. I did a little dancing that night. Camera and all…Kurt and Laurie, on this day of giving thanks, I’m thankful for you. I’m thankful for your trust in the Lord and how you’ve lived that out whether others are paying attention or not. I’m thankful for your friendship and love…. and how it shines brightly to inspire others to dig deeper in their own relationships. Kurt, thank you for loving my friend like you do. I couldn’t have prayed for a more perfect man for her.
And to all you blog readers, Happy Thanksgiving!
