Mariam & Thomas’ wedding had so many of my favorite things – a beautiful setting; family involvement – Mariam’s brother officiated and both of Thomas’ brothers gave toasts that were heartfelt and hilarious; and a past couple of ours as guests. We met Mariam & Thomas through Abby & Paul. Mariam was Abby’s bridesmaid, and Abby reciprocated by being a co-maid of honor for Mariam.
This wedding was quite the tearjerker for me – especially when it came to Mariam & her dad. Before going out to see Thomas for the first time, Mariam walked down the staircase to her dad waiting at the bottom. He held a photograph from the day Mariam was born. Woo-boy. Tears – the great kind.
It’s the little details that make a wedding day specific to the couple. Mariam put a pin of her grandfather’s, who had recently passed, in her hair. I also loved the idea that Thomas had for Mariam. He wrote her four letters that were given to her as the day went along – leading up to their first look. I’m sure they will keep those to look back on years from now.
Thank you Abby & Paul – and thank you Mariam & Thomas for having us their to celebrate with you.
