To say that August 29, 2015 was the best day of my life is definitely an understatement!
To be totally honest, I have trouble writing about our wedding. I simply don’t have enough faith in my word-craftsmanship. Trying to depict that beautiful day through my writing would be like attempting to recreate the statue of David with a chainsaw, or the Mona Lisa with a twelve-pack of Crayolas.
It’s hard to write about our romance, to translate such a radiant feeling onto the dull glow of a Macbook. It’s hard to capture the magnificence, the pure white blooming swirling worshipping sparkling bubbling overflowing joy of that day.
In fact, I must have re-written the extremely brief reference to our wedding in my About Me at least twenty-nine times… and I still don’t love it.
I’ll let the photos and film speak for me, but all I can say is that the past eight months and six days have been hands-down the best of my life.
Every day with this man is a special occasion. Every day with him is The Trevathan Celebration!
Our wedding film rendered me speechless the first time I saw it. I hope you love it too!
Mrs. Stephen Robert Trevathan
