Your Wedding Day Isn't the Most Important Day of Your Life

If I could grab every client firmly by the shoulders, look them squarely in the eye, and tell them one thing, it would be THIS:

I don't know if there's one singularly "most important" moment in a person's life. Instead, I subscribe to the notion that the importance of life is made up of millions of tiny, fleeting, barely-there moments, all compounding into a wildly stunning montage.

The accidental brush of someone's hand against yours. Eyes connecting across a room. A first kiss. The dimple in their cheek that only shows up with a genuine smile. Belly laughs. A drunken night...

...the First Dance. The toasts. The Last Dance. The After Party...

...yard work in Autumn. Frozen pipes in Winter. A burned meatloaf and tears. Jobs lost and jobs found. Celebratory champagne and a comforting cup of tea. Angry sobs and joy-filled laughs. Long nights and early mornings. First days of school. Last days of school. Going gray and balding. Taking The Vacation- the one you always meant to. Holding hands. Doctors' appointments. Holidays and hospitals.

The purposeful brush of someone's hand against yours. Eyes connecting across the room. A last kiss.

Life with Your Person will be so much more than simply your Wedding Day.
