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.
In the morning after Jody was in her wedding dress, I went outside where Greg and Tristan had just arrived to say hello. I said to Greg that Jody was looking beautiful. Without any hesitation, hands in the air and a huge smile on his face he replies, “Jody is so beautiful on the inside and out, she’s my gift!!!”. Come their receiving line, each and every guest that went through (almost all with tears and giant hugs) got a glowing compliment from Greg and Jody about how wonderful they were and how beautiful they looked. If everyone treated their partners, friends, family and life the way Greg and Jody do we’d be one very lucky planet. And we are so lucky just to have these two on it in the first place.
