Ashley Wells is one of my dearest friends. She has the most amazing soul. I really do love her like she is my sister, and want everything for her in her life and love and dreams.
James Pierce is such a stud. He asks amazing questions and see right through people in a gentle way. He is like a brother to me and is someone I truly respect.
These two got married last week, and I introduced them.
Their wedding was the Perfect storm of everything the two of them represent. Words that come to mind are: relaxing, community, economical, love, fresh air, bare feet, poetry, letters, and twinkle lights. It was the perfect balance of it all. They danced and laughed and drank wine and ate tacos. Their smiles were ear to ear the entire time I was in their presence. Her dress fit her like a glove, and he looked at her like she was the only girl in the world. Good beer, good company, good food.
I left feeling full, in lots of ways.
With Bill by my side, these two making promises, and dear friends all around, I welled up with tears in the car ride on the way home. It was one of those nights that was so perfect, you did not want it to end. It was everything I envisioned for this wonderful couple, and I know their marriage is only the start of their amazing journey through this life together.
Congratulations James and Ashley! I love you both more than life itself!
