Sign of the times. 😷 Weddings are looking pretty different these days, but love always wins. One day we'll look back at photos like this and remember how we made the best of a terrible situation. There may have been limited hugging at this backcountry wedding, no traditional dances, and many people were missed, but the love was there. The day ended with a marriage. In the end, that's what matters most for any wedding day. The big reception can wait. 💚 P.S. be a good human and wear your mask. ✌🏻
I've taken over three weeks off of posting on Instagram (aside from occasionally sharing other important voices on my stories). It still doesn't quite feel right to go back to normal here because normal isn't good enough, and we are still far from where we should be. But as I slowly ramp back up with work for the rest of this year (I mean hopefully, right??) I will be posting more regular content. Please know that beyond this little screen I am still actively working on myself and my business and how each can remain a positive force in this important civil rights movement. I hope you keep it up with me, even as the hype dies down. We still have work to do.
A week or two ago, it would have never occurred to me to explicitly state that my business supports POC, or is LGBTQ friendly. Because in my mind, of *course* it is. I have had clients of all kinds of different backgrounds, and the idea of turning someone away because of the color of their skin or their cultural background or who they love is unthinkable. In light of these most recent, horrible events, as we seek #justiceforgeorgefloyd (and many others) and as we also look ahead to honor pride month, I realize that my silence only emboldens the prejudiced. I don't want that. I want to be a voice and a force of positive change, but I'm still learning. My hope is that the immeasurable pain this country is going through right now at least might bring about positive change, and learning for all of us. So today I am here to say, explicitly: Black lives matter. Love is love. & You are welcome here. . . . #blacklivesmatter #loveislove #pridemonth2020
Andrea and Brandon's wedding day may not have looked exactly how they had been planning for the past year and a half, but it was sweet and meaningful, they were surrounded by the people who love them (both physically and virtually) and most important of all, they did the dang thing and now they are MARRIED. What a special, beautiful day! ❤️
So excited I can finally let it out of the bag that these two lovebirds ELOPED last weekend. After weeks of stress over cancelled plans and planning their wedding amid the restrictions of a covid-19 world, they decided to say, screw it, and I do in the backcountry of southern Colorado. They had planned a camping getaway for the weekend of their would-be wedding, and last minute decided to elope while they were there. They invited just a few loved ones to join them, and it was the sweetest afternoon. They will still have their larger celebration later on, but I am so happy for them to keep their original wedding date and make their weekend joyful amid all the chaos. 💚 Adri and Diego I love you!!!
