Well I don’t want the whole world,
The sun, the moon and all their light.
I just wanna be the only girl,
You love all your life.
You love all your life
“All your life” – The Band Perry
Sarah and Matt,
What do you write to the two people who pretty much embody kindness, gentleness, intelligence, dedication and hard work?
From the moment I arrived at Veritas, I noticed one thing in particular: a space of joy and harmony enveloped you both.
Joy, laughter, calm.
Your friends and families were just radiating joy and it was contagious and made the day perfect. Every detail was prepared to perfection, and we were brilliantly on time all day, but it was that harmony that really made the day perfect.
I remember chatting briefly to Matt while we waited for you to come down the hill for the first look. We talked about your first date and he told me he was almost as nervous waiting for you now – on your wedding day. When he turned around, you both immediately embraced and just held on to each other. It was a beautiful moment and really showed how much strength you get from each other.
For two people who are so incredibly accomplished, you are still playful and fun. Sarah, your vows about the cats made me crack up (go figure). Matt, you being willing to be lifted up by the bridesmaids was equally priceless.
I believe that your dad’s words are true, Sarah. You are each on a path to great things but together you are going to make a immeasurable difference in the world. I really look forward to following your accomplishments in the coming years because I know these elements that made your wedding day so beautiful are just the beginning and you will continue to bring all these wonderful traits to everything you do! Your friends and family are blessed to have you in their lives and you are equally blessed with the love they bring you.
Many, many wishes for a long and happy life together with lots of beach time, UVA wins and cats!
A very special thank you to Amy Forbes Wells for all her camaraderie, hard work and, of course, gorgeous images.
