sarah + john.

I had the immense pleasure of meeting Sarah at the beginning of August 2017 just before my trip to Spain. We met for coffee at Starbucks along with her sweet mama. We got to chatting and meshed really well right away. 

What really hit home was when Mom shared her happiness in Sarah's future husband. She welled up with tears sharing how well he takes care of her. Especially as her health fluctuates, sometimes day to day. Sarah's health had never been better as when John stepped into her life. 

There is something about love that is truly healing. 

I too experienced the same transformation. At the age of 13, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. I will spare you the dirty details. However, through the support and care of my now wife, I received the first all clear from my doctor in 2016.

Needless to say, Sarah, Mom and I really bonded. Immediately, Sarah wanted to book me. 

The makeup trial was so much fun. Again, mom joined and we chit chatted about everything from wedding plans to party stories and what I was doing. It felt like we were old friends catching up!

Not only was Sarah such a sweet heart, fun, and extremely relaxed, but beyond organized! I could not have asked for a better bride! She had inspiration photos for each girl and clearly read through my contract. 

Then the wedding day. SO. MUCH. FUN! Each girl was equally as kind and fun as Sarah. Conversation was so easy and everyone was extremely happy with their final looks. 

Sarah and John- I wish you all the happiness, health, patience, and peace in the world! May you enjoy the small details of life as strongly as the big adventures. Cheers to your love!
