Nelli and I had the pleasure of being a part of Pete and Mary's friday wedding and it was inspiring. From the excitement of seeing each other for the first time, to the cool fall outdoor ceremony, to Mary's father's speech at the reception...it was all refreshing. I feel like I left their wedding better than I came. Mary and Pete's relationship is inspiring and the group of people they are surrounded by combined for a beautiful occasion.
Mary's father gave a heartfelt speech at the reception and dedicated a song to Mary. He talked about being in love and staying in love. When you watched the generations of these families dancing together at the reception, you could tell that they had discovered something special about staying in love. It seemed that the same joy that Mary and Pete were experiencing in their first dance, their parents and grandparents were experiencing in what could have been there thousandth dance. That is a wonderful thing to behold.
Congrats Pete and Mary on a great wedding day and an excellent start on your lives together. I'm glad I could be a part of capturing and preserving these special memories.
