David and Valentina

“I know this is the girl I want to marry, this is who I want to spend my life with,” is what David told friends shortly after he and Valentina started dating.  I have known David for several years and to see him so happy is a joy!  To see the look on his face when he looks at her, to watch the way they embrace each other and keep wanting to draw one another closer is so beautiful!

Valentina is a beautiful, sweet, soul who is always smiling!  Valentina’s family and friends from Italy will be joining her and David next summer for their official wedding ceremony.  I know it was hard for Valentina not to have them here on this day (and hard for her family too!).  Despite how hard it was, you could see in David and Valentina’s eyes that the concept of “home” has changed.  It is no longer a building or a city, and while I know being with their families will always be familiar and comfortable, their “home” is now with each other.

“It feels like home to me,

It feels like home to me,

It feels like I’m all the way back where I come from.

It feels like home to me,

It feels like home to me,

It feels like I’m all the way back where I belong.” ~Chantal Kreviazuk, It Feels Like Home~

Valentina also had several unexpected things come up the week before their ceremony!  To see her handle all the ambiguity with such poise and without family here was inspiring!  I also want to give kudos to Christina at the Evan Todd Salon & Spa in West Lafayette, IN, who went above and beyond to make sure this bride had as much time and privacy as possible to relax and rest before the ceremony!  On a day that can easily become focused on business and details, it is priceless when you have people in your corner who help you to pause, rest and take time to soak up the love of the day!

David and Valentina I am so honored to have been a part of this gorgeous day.  I look forward to celebrating with you both more next year!
