Compass Rose Cellars Wedding: Nate & Cassidy

Lessons from Nate & Cassidy's wedding:

1. Don't be afraid to think outside the box- instead of looking at typical wedding venues, Nate & Cassidy remembered visiting a winery they loved, Compass Rose Cellars, and got married there.  Or maybe you don't want to feed each other cake in the traditional way?  How about throwing it to each other?

2. Take a few minutes to connect in the middle of a hectic day- even though weddings are about two people getting married, you'd be surprised at how little time you end up with each other, so step away to pray, reflect, or just be together for a few minutes.

3. Make sure everyone you love is there- Patrick the dog (not Nate's cousin Patrick) is a huge part of Nate & Cassidy's life so it only makes sense that he would be part of the wedding.  Pro-tip: assign one person to be in charge of your pet so they don't end up wandering off!

4. Be all in- Whether it's your commitment to one another or singing every word of Bohemian Rhapsody, your marriage and this world is better when you don't hold back.  P.S.  Dancing is more fun when you're not afraid to look a little crazy!

Mercury Hall Wedding: Brianna & Josh!

As Brianna & Josh's friends & family scurried around Mercury Hall on the afternoon of their wedding, I commented on how hard they were working to make everything perfect.  Several people replied with total sincerity, "They deserve it.  They would and have done the same for all of us."  That spoke volumes about the kind of people Brianna & Josh are.  They love well and are loved well in return.  That love even extends to their sweet pup, too, who faithfully followed them around all day, never in the way, but always present.  She even brought them the actual rings, during the ceremony!  As always, it was an honor to witness and document such a heartfelt celebration of love!
