we’re all connected.
it’s been said many times before by people much wiser than me, but it’s true. peel the layers back and at our cores we’re all essentially the same.
sarah and james are both extraordinarily high achievers.
to hear him articulate so well about how surreal an experience it was to be in front of family + friends was something else.
weddings are one of the few life events where this sameness we all share is in plain sight. they’re the great equaliser, and it’s a beautiful thing.

things don’t always go to plan.
how you imagined your wedding day and the reality of what mother nature provides are often two different things.
embrace it. it’s no big deal.
love the elements within your control, and let go of what you can’t.
often it’s better than you could have imagined.
this is the day your family becomes official.
savour every. precious. moment.

a letter to her 10 year old self…
“I am giving you permission to slow down…
to just be.
to embrace each moment and feel it fully, rather than already move on to the next.
to know that life can be only lived in the present moment.
and our soul can only be heard when we are still enough to listen…”
khaila and clinton.
