It was an intimate, casual wedding in Mexico. The intimate, casual wedding of two people I've known and loved forever. I didn't make a speech, but I suppose, these photographs, are my speech...
My elementary school was within walking distance. I would walk up the road, picking up my pal Andy... we would venture down the road and pick up the neighborhood twins, Matt and Mark. Some times we would stop at the local corner store, get some one cent candies... and eventually we'd wind up at school. Somewhere on the other side of town, Heather was also in elementary school making fun of a boy named Bryce. They lived within walking distance of each other. As the fates would have it, Bryce and I wound up together, as did Heather and Andy.
Heather and I have been friends since forever, that is no secret. But, Andy was always a good friend to me, someone I looked forward to spending time with. We lifeguarded together and I always valued sharing a laugh with him. In fact, in my diary from elementary school I wrote "Andy is the funniest". Heather always looked forward to Bryce coming home each summer from his far away hockey adventures. We were all connected in different ways. But connected always.
On Friday in the beautiful Mayan Riviera, Heather and Andy exchanged vows in front of an close group of family and friends. Of course, I was there to photograph my fabulous friends look into each others eyes and announce their commitment and love to the world. It certainly is nice to see dear friends, happy. With such deep connections to so many people involved... it was moving, beautiful and exactly as it was supposed to be.
Wishing you all, a long and joyous life together.
