If I could do it properly, I would tell you all about this wedding day. I would tell you about the feeling of home, the comfort and joy found in family. The smiles. The anticipation. The preparation. The love that went into every detail. If I could do it justice, I would tell you how important their guests were to Sara and Jon. How each thing they planned was done so with their friends and family in mind. How they treated us like guests, seating us as guests, feeding us as guests, and welcoming us as if we belonged. How their creativity shone throughout the day. I’d tell you about hay bales and vintage quilts for seating, a beautifully restored gazebo, and a family who beamed right along with the bride. I’d tell you about a groom who couldn’t stop the smiles all day long. I’d tell you about grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins galore. If I could do it properly, I’d tell you about end of summer sunshine and paper lanterns and homemade candied apples for wedding favors, made by the bride herself. I would tell you about cinnamon sticks and delicious individual apple pies from Luann’s Bakery. About cookies and milk, and how Sara and Jon just make that kind of sense together. I don’t have the right words to explain the love and appreciation that was felt throughout the day. But I do have way too many photos to help tell the story. So that’s where I’ll begin, and end.
Many, many blessings to the new Mr & Mrs Avery. Thank you for your remarkable kindness, hospitality, and generosity. Congratulations!
