Elizabeth & Matt – Sheraton Station Square Wedding
The Marriage of Elizabeth & Matthew
It was the best of times. It was the greatest of times. It was the time of love. It was the time of celebration.
Our tale begins on a bright summer like day at the turn of Autumn. Our groom Matt and his attendants anxiously awaited the day in the marital home. Along side were their four legged children, curious as to the commotion and the where about of their mommy.
In the meantime our bride Elizabeth, was meticulously preparing for the day with her ladies-in-waiting. Blessed with a beautiful view of the city, the ladies prepared for the day.
The smallest of the bridal party was adorned with an altered dress the bride’s mother wore on her wedding day.
From one book worm to the other, Liz sent over The Missing Piece by Shel Silverstein. Upon the inside cover Liz inscribed a love letter to her husband to be. Matt also wrote a love note to his beloved.
As the bride began to float down the isle, the congregation began to swell with emotion. We turn our attention unto the groom, whose emotion was rolling down his face. Tears of happiness. This day was filled with many tears of happiness.
Our lovers exchanged vows, an undying promise to love one another until the end of time.
Liz is also a very laid back and naturally good hearted. She has the charisma to make everyone feel special in her presence.
Matt could never be described as overly serious or melancholy. He is a very funny, kind person. Which is why his friends love him, and also wished they could throw him in the fountain.
Friends are the family you get to choose.
Love of man for woman—love of woman for man. That’s the nature, the meaning, the best of life itself. Zane Grey Riders of the Purple Sage.
Being best friends, they anticipated the other would smash cake in their face. Living life is best when you’re laughing.
As with any great story, there are more then just the principal characters and main story arcs. Karen, our bride’s mother, has been fighting breast cancer (I believe she has taken her chemo treatment, and is now cancer free!!). Elizabeth took her opportunity in the spotlight to shine it on her mother. Sharing a mother daughter dance to I Will Survive, as well as sharing a very heartfelt speech to her mom, that left no dry eyes. Instead of throwing her bouquet, she dedicated it to her mom- for being strong and a fighter.
As our newly weds danced, took funny pictures in the photobooth and had midnight snacks, the night drew to an end. They said their thank yous and goodbys and headed out to party some more.
