She dabbed at her eyes with the handkerchief while Neil read his vows to her. The words he had written that very morning, typed out on a single piece of paper. He couldn't help smiling as he lifted his eyes from the page and looked right into hers, already filling with tears.
Lindsay pressed a trembling hand to her mouth. This was the moment they'd been waiting so long for. The cute boy with curly hair she had met so many years ago was now promising to hold her in hard times, to celebrate with her in good times, to never leave her, to love her until the end of their days. One by one, the bridesmaids lifted identical white handkerchiefs to wipe away the tears that filled their eyes.
When Lindsay unfolded the sheets of paper containing her vows and promises, Neil's eyes filled as well. He blinked away tears so he could look into her eyes as she read. This was the moment. The girl he fell in love with on a train in Chicago, joined to him by a pair of headphones. And now she was promising to be his wife, to always choose his side, to grow with him, and to love him unconditionally. How did he get so lucky?
And then just like those two kids on an adventure in Chicago, they stepped forward together hand in hand. Joined by the promise that their hearts would each find home in the other.
Because their adventure was only beginning.
Lindsay & Neil, I can't express in words how thankful I am that you chose me to photograph your wedding day. From the moment we first met, I saw in the two of you what I see in my own marriage. Two people who are the best of friends, who are dedicated to supporting each other in everything, and who will always be on the same team for the rest of their lives. And that is such a beautiful thing. Thank you for welcoming me into your family for the day! You have been such a joy to work with and I can't wait to see where this one wild and precious life takes you!
