“My dear, if heaven is truly a place, then it is situated in your heart, that special place, that was reserved for me.”
Michael Bassey Johnson
I feel incredibly blessed to have been a witness to Brandi and Andy’s wedding day. Even now, a few months later, it brings such a warmth to me to think about this beautiful day. I was SO worried about the fires that were burning all over Northern California that September weekend. I was nervous that the light would be awful, that ash would rain down, that it wouldn’t be pretty enough for these two. But I really shouldn’t have worried – not for a second – because despite a smoke clouded sky this wedding was stunningly gorgeous. The beauty didn’t come from the details and decor (though they were really lovely!) it came bursting out of Brandi and Andy. There love for each other enveloped the whole space and every person in it. Their wedding day was laughter through tears – again and again. They were so very happy and their happiness was contagious. Hearing their love story, watching their best friends marry them, listening to the way they are so deeply loved by their family and friends and watching them commit their lives to each other filled me (and I’m sure every person there) with this unbelievable hope for the future. Big, magical love exists! It is proved by Brandi and Andy. How thankful I am that I was there to witness it.
