I’m a strong believer that pictures should stand on their own, but in cases such as this some words are worth sharing. Just before Kelly was about to walk down the aisle, she got a visit from a dragonfly. While you can’t see the dragonfly here, what you can see is Kelly’s face when she saw her oldest brother. Tyler passed away a few years ago, and his family believes he shows up in the form of a dragonfly. Knowing this, as a surprise to Kelly they put a little silver dragonfly on her bouquet so she would have Tyler with her. But then, as I mentioned, he showed up all on his own, and circled her over and over until she finally started the procession.
Meagan and I have talked about her wedding for a long time. She has put so much thought over the years into what she wanted, and appropriately so as she made pretty much everything herself. She and her mother made her beautiful dress, she sewed all the table linens, made the invitations, the favours, the floral ribbons, the ceremony flowers the cake etc. etc. I could go on. The wedding was even held at her family’s house in Kelowna. We were in awe of her talent and dedication to the perfect handmade wedding. But what made this wedding perfect wasn’t the tiny details or the location as great as they were. It was the relationship between Meagan and Dave. Their minister mentioned during the ceremony that none of his couples have done so well in their marriage class as these two. That they had all the right ideals and tools to grow with their marriage and one another. I think this is pretty obvious and i’m sure it has been to their family and friends for years. They’ve got a lot of love ahead of them!
