With a beautiful mix of wit and heart-felt expression, Jason and Cristina's story reminds us that age is only a barrier if we let it, and that it takes courage to give our loved ones the best. They also remind us that blizzards are not enough to stop weddings in Canada!
The bride preparations in the morning are usually quiet with a controlled group of people milling about. But, to my surprise, the doorbell kept ringing and the population in the living room kept increasing. I soon learned that Cristina’s family and close friends would get a sneak peek of her wedding-day swagger before the formalities of the ceremony. After all the ladies were ready, the bridesmaids headed down in single file, strutting their elegant dark green gowns followed by the bride herself. The wedding day started off with some midday wine and hors d’oeuvres. It was looking good!!
Filled with a clever balance of wit and sentimental regards, Nick and Taryn’s fun story reminds us of one of the reasons we do what we do: family
“Where you go, I will go. Where you live, I will live. Your people will be my people and your God will be my God. May God deal with me severely if anything but death separates me from you”.
These words, taken from the story of Ruth in the Bible, at the beginning of their ceremony began the parallel of Debbie’s transition from Boston to Paris to build her relationship with Pierre. Last weekend, they sealed the deal in a small town called Montgeroult just outside of Paris. Here is a little sneak peek of their story that I had the privilege of being a part of.
Big shout-outs to all those who helped to bring (and hold) together the day, especially Mia and Anijah
As we narrate together!
