We have successfully shot our last wedding in our crazy busy fall of 2012! And what an amazing season it was. And as we get ready to say goodbye to 2012 (with one more lucky December wedding to shoot!!), and hello to 2013, we can’t help but wish our couples just one thing. It is the deepest desire of our hearts, that our couples would ALL have a marriage more beautiful than their weddings.
And we are completely blessed to shoot some GORGEOUS weddings.
But marriage is hard. It can be hard right from the beginning for some. And while we’ve only been married almost 10 years (whoa), it IS long enough to know that I want exactly this, even for myself. It means never giving up on your marriage, always sacrificing for one another, and viewing the wedding as jumping off point for your relationship. It’s a beautiful party and celebration, but knowing that what lies ahead has the potential for being even MORE beautiful, is what’s key. It’s never forgetting WHY you got married in the first place. It’s always finding ways to date, even after decades of being together.
I do think having a marriage more beautiful than your wedding is possible. It takes a lot of hard work, endurance, and commitment. But it’s POSSIBLE. We pray this for our couples as they begin their adventure together as a married couple. We seriously are obsessed with the fact that this is what we get to do for our living. We love that this is more than just work to us. Being passionate about MARRIAGE with our couples is just as amazing as being ecstatic over wedding colors and details.
And that’s the TRUTH, y’all.
So try to find one simple way today to make your marriage better. There’s nothing too small or too big, and it’s never too early or late to start cherishing something that is SO important.
