Brittany and Ben were married on a bridge, on the beautiful grounds of Della Tera in Estes Park. It was just them, me, and their photographer. What a privilege to be near them, witnessing their vows, and simply catching just a little of the feelings that they expressed to one another. We acknowledged that, in the moment, they had family and friends back home who surely were with them at a heart level, and looking forward to being with them for a great celebration when they return, as husband and wife!
A great joy I have in performing weddings is getting to speak about the couple's love story. How they found each other, their first impressions of one another, highlights of their romance. Very sweet, humorous, and fun tales. The wedding guests love it. Last weekend, I got to talk about Katherine and Eric's courtship, sharing with everyone that, when Katherine first laid eyes on Eric, a voice inside her head clearly said, "He's the one! You're going to marry this guy!" But at the very moment Katherine was being struck by Cupid's arrow, another woman swooped in and shamelessly began flirting with Eric. The result of which delayed their romance a bit. Eric dated the other woman for a few weeks before coming to his senses. He ended the relationship and succumbed to the power of Katherine's inner voice. Today, they're on their honeymoon! The "other woman" was not invited to the wedding.
