Natasha and Andrew…
You two are the reason why I love what I do.
I have been looking forward to April 28th for quite some time because I knew that day was going to be memorable, something special. I knew all of this simply from the interactions I had with you both up until the wedding day. Meeting with her and talking numerous times, she has such a humble spirit, sweet, funny (with a great sense of humor), and just drop dead gorgeous. So, I just knew I wasn’t going to be disappointed on their wedding day and meeting Andrew.
Winding dirt roads, succulent gardens, the smell of wooden cabins, tall pines, a glistening cold creek, champagne and ice cold beer with laughter and friends, and the sun shining down with just the right amount of warmth – these were just some of the things that describe this past weekend at Coldwater Gardens where they tied the knot. It was heaven and I couldn’t have chosen a better place for the two. Coldwater Gardens was like a little oasis, mapped off from the world to remember the beauty of nature and the simple things in life.
I must say Andrew’s face the whole day was lit up with joy, gratitude, and love. He hardly took his eyes off his bride the whole evening. I asked Andrew what he loved about Natasha the most and he said ‘her faith’ while at the same time Natasha mouthed the same. I know that is exactly why their love will last because their affection is more than skin deep, and when your love is rooted in faith that is even harder to break.
I pray for your love to endure through the trials you will face together and for your happiness to be brighter than the closest star.
