Hey look. It’s beautiful people. In beautiful light. Looking beautiful….
I get it. You are engaged. You wanna look engaged. You wanna look like all those beautiful Pinterestable people that smile in the evening light and show off their love and diamond ring in one timeless golden photo.
Here’s the thing though, you are not everybody else. You are you.
You may not be able to do this pose.
You may be taller than him.
He may be WAY taller than you.
Maybe he likes to wear a hat.
There are thousands of reasons why this may not work for you. You know what…. that’s ok.
Maybe when you look at those beautiful people in the golden light you think…
I hate those people. I don’t like that photo. Those people suck.
Here’s the thing. You don’t have to like those photos. You don’t have to be everyone.
You can be yourself.
Maybe you hate “fancy” clothes. Maybe you don’t like to hug.
Maybe you would rather put on camo and go into the woods with 4 rifles, 2 bows, 1 pistol, and a knife.
Cuz you know… that’s who you are. That’s what you do.
If that’s the case… Do it.
Why would you want to copy someone else when you two are one of a kind?
I get it. You want to have a great wedding. So you look to everyone for ideas, inspiration, and what to do.
But, when you look at everyone else, just remember.
This is the first time you two are getting married in the history of marriages.
Your wedding is an original.
Your story is unique.
Tell it on your terms.
