Weddings are a representation of a new chapter, a time of change, and a reason to celebrate. Of course the wedding itself is just one day among a lifetime with your partner. The real celebration is in the journey to come.
John and Danielle (Dani) were recently married and I loved what Dani said when asked what she was most looking forward to on her wedding day. Aside from all the planning for the event finally being over, which I’m sure we can all relate to, Dani said she was most looking forward to being around the people they love and celebrating with them. She believes that each person in attendance helped carve the path that brought them together, and in a way their wedding was a “thank you” celebration for all those who had a part in shaping them and bringing them together as husband and wife.
I love her perspective because it’s an acknowledgment that the wedding is simply a party. While the marriage and connections with loved ones are what truly matter. John and Dani were married in a Catholic Church, and their reception was held right across the street at Ignacio Martinez Park Plaza. They had a traditional catholic ceremony, and incorporated some Filipino traditions as well. It was a gorgeous day, and the joy these two exuded was tangible. I know that beyond their beautiful wedding, there is an even more beautiful journey that lies ahead for them, and that is worth celebrating.
A gorgeous Saint Catherine of Siena Catholic Church Wedding, joining together two even more gorgeous souls. Thank you Dani and John for allowing me to be a part of your big day!
