Mark Alex Wedding - Greystone Fields, Gibsonia

Yesterday's wedding with Mark & Alex was a lovely wedding...that I, quite frankly, wasn't sure whether it would happen or not.

Just one month ago, the mother of bride, Alex, unexpectedly passed away.  When I first heard the news from Alex, she was explaining why she hadn't got back to me about scheduling her Photo Checklist prep meeting.  I couldn't believe what I was reading, in regards to what happened and in the thought that the wedding was still on, just two weeks later.

But Alex, as confirmed during her sister's speech, is a strong woman.  And yesterday's wedding was filled with joy, as well as moments of remembrance: roses respectfully laid on the chair her mother would have been sitting on during the ceremony, a memorial toast given by groom Mark with not a dry eye in the house, and two Memorial Wall Art pieces that Mark asked us to design as a surprise, first to display at the wedding and then to give as a gift to his new wife and sister-in-law.

Such a lovely wedding indeed.
