As I am sitting down to write out this post, I cannot believe that we are already halfway through our spring wedding season! And 2017 is already 1/4 of the way over! Where has the time gone??
Mike and Jessica’s wedding will always be one of our favorites. First, let me give a shout out to Kayla with Some Like It Classic who is a seriously incredible wedding planner and SUCH a joy to work with! We just love her! Secondly, I have to shout out to Flower Studio who creates the most absolutely breathtaking designs and florals for every single wedding they do. Such talented and humble people! These two are on our list of top favorites in the AZ industry and we feel so lucky to get to work with them as often as we do! Now that I have raved about their vendors, let me rave about Mike and Jessica a little bit…
Mike and Jessica have been together for 11 years… ELEVEN years! They have loved one another and been committed to each other for over 1/3 of their lives already so their wedding day was extra special and much anticipated. Some say that to be together for so long before marriage makes the joy of the wedding day a little less, but Andrew and I believe quite the opposite. And so do all of their loved ones. What a testimony to commitment and friendship! What an inspiring journey these two have been on! They have spent most of their relationship long-distance from each other as they both achieved their masters and doctorate degrees and even landed the careers of their dreams. They have cheered each other on over the phone and in person, they have supported each other, worked hard together, cried together, laughed together, and missed each other. They know that they need each other and each is the other’s calming factor. They have created not just a love story, but an amazing friendship. After such a journey, Andrew and I felt like the wedding day had a level of depth to it that we don’t experience as often- it was as if everyone had a peace in their souls and joy in their eyes that said “YES. IT IS TIME. NOW IS THE TIME.” It was time, and what a JOYOUS celebration it was!
Mike and Jessica, thank you for choosing us and for being two of the most inspiring and hardworking people we have ever met. Your commitment to each other is a blessing to everyone around you, and we are SO lucky to know you. -A&EJ
