A look of disbelief passed between them. Happy, this-is-surreal disbelief, but disbelief nonetheless. It might have been the five years that have passed since they first fell in love and got engaged. They never thought it could happen, especially since they lived in Texas. Or it might have been the entire day of being pampered and showered by the generosity of vendors– hair & makeup artists, florists, and others– who participated in our wedding giveaway to help them have an especially beautiful day. Or it may have been the happy smiles from strangers’ faces on the streets of San Francisco and the warm congratulations they found on every corner.
“This is crazy!” exclaimed Janay, with a huge grin washing over her. They were wed, and even though their three children and the rest of their families couldn’t be there with them, their love for each other was strength enough to power the entire day.
Congratulations, Tasha and Janay! I was thrilled to be a part of your wedding day.
Tasha and Janay had two beautiful bouquets custom-designed for them by Jenny from Natalie Bowen Designs. They got complements on the flowers everywhere we went.
Natalie Bowen Designs did a fantastic job on the two bouquets– similar and coordinating, but not exactly the same. They suited Tasha and Janay perfectly.
