I first met Katie’s father at my best friend’s wedding. At some point, I remember being slightly less than sober, talking to John about his daughter and Steve. I remember John telling me how thankful he is that they found each other, how wonderful Steve is with their boys, and how much he loved his daughter. I had known Steve since high school, so I could attest to how kind he is. I had met Katie a few times before, and thought she was so beautiful and unique… Seriously. I wish I had the guts to rock a full sleeve like she does!!!
A few months went by and my phone rang. It was a call from John! He said Katie + Steve had decided to get married and he wanted to know if I was available for the date. It was a small wedding, he said, and they wanted it to be under a covered bridge. My heart was skipping beats as John told me all about the details they had set their hearts on. I was so thankful my calendar was open for their day.
February 11th rolled around and it was the most beautiful day. Katie was hoping for snow, and there was plenty on the ground. The weather was warm, the bridge was beautiful. Family gathered around as Steve and Wyatt stood patiently waiting for their girl. John walked kind of slow, I think, as to not rush into giving is daughter away. Although he was honored to have his daughter marry Steve, John and Katie have a very special relationship, he told me on the way home from the wedding. It was truly one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever been to. It was sweet and simple, all about what a wedding is REALLY about: marrying your best friend.
I would LOVELOVELOVE to be a part of more weddings like this!
