During John’s dad’s toast last night, he brought up that Ciera and John had waited a year for yesterday to happen. They did it because it was vital that they celebrate with each of the folks in the audience. It was a beautiful moment of community and intentionally surrounding yourself with the people who matter the most.
The best and hardest part of COVID postponed weddings is saying goodbye to couples. I have been working with Ciera and John for almost 3 years now. I am so thankful for their attitude, their dedication and all the work they put in to make yesterday a reality. There is a big part of me that is sad their wedding is no longer on the horizon.
But, it was a day that we’ll never forget. From the beautiful getting-ready space full of laughter (and bottles of Pedialyte) to their portraits in Pioneer Square. It was a morning of just joy. After a quick Chambong, we headed to the Olympic Sculpture Park for a wedding surrounded by friends, family, and a dance party of pent-up celebration for this fully vaccinated crowd.
