She walked, the tulle layers of her skirt floating across the grass with each step. In one hand she held her bouquet, a handkerchief, and her vows. Her other hand tightened into a fist with excitement. She had waited what felt like a lifetime for this moment. And here it was. Today they would join two hearts, two lives, and two families into one.
Ryan turned and tears immediately sprung to his eyes. He always thought Keri looked beautiful, but this moment surpassed them all. After borrowing her handkerchief to dab his eyes, he reached for her, resting his hand tenderly and protectively on her arm.
In a few hours they would stand before their friends and family, recite vows, and commit their lives to each other. But this moment was just for the two of them. For vows written from the heart. Promises to support each other, to put their children first, to love unconditionally and without hesitation. Promises for her to be the best she can be for him, and him for her. To share the dreams, hopes, and goals of the other. Promises to encourage, uplift, and respect each other.
How cute is this little brick house? I want to live here!
Keri had both her dad and step-dad walk her down the aisle. It was so sweet!
Keri & Ryan were SO JOYFUL all day! They couldn't stop smiling!
Keri & Ryan, thank you for welcoming us into your family for the day. Thank you for loving us and carrying for us as if we were guests. You are two of the kindest people that we have ever met and we feel so blessed to call you friends!
