They met in undergrad in Spanish class and began to spend time together, knowing they were to go different directions after graduation. But this Love was destined. Without telling each other their plans they changed course and both went to Spain to teach, so beginning a love that was rooted in serving others, improving education and bettering the environment. This beautiful wedding is featured on the blog tonight. #linkinbio Samantha and Austin, you are two of the most genuine people we have met and we are so honored to have shared in a small part of your story.
Some of my favorite moments from last night’s wedding came from watching these two delight in each other, unaware of the bustle of activity surrounding them. Arms clasped around each other, faces nestled against the other’s, and a contented smile on their lips. As a matter of fact, there is a street musician raucously singing “Bring Me Another Tequila Sheila” about 3 feet from them at this moment and you’d never know it. This quite love, the kind that drowns out all the noise, and lets love’s silences fill in it’s space, this...this is my favorite.
See that girl in the photo? She’s had a secret passion for years. Words have mattered to me for as long as I can remember. My writings started almost as soon as I could hold a pencil. I’d illustrate my pages, binding my stories with a hole punch and ribbon, and placing my books on the shelf next to my parent’s collection of literature, quite certain that this was the manuscript that would get me discovered. 6 months ago I joined @marymarantz and @justinmarantz business course which sparked a deep desire to tell a better story, to say something with this platform I have the privilege of sharing on. This week, I listened to the words of some very wise creative entrepreneurs, and in the spirit of #dohardthings that came out of the #showitunited2017 conference, and the encouraging words of @katelynjames to pursue what you are passionate about, I am adding copy writing to my business.. I love words, and it is time to use them to serve others. #fridayintroductions 📸:@fletcherandco
