This wedding left a lasting impact on me. Meredith and Tommy flew me out to Baltimore to capture their nuptials
at an old club house straight out of Dirty Dancing. It wasn't the incredible decorations or location that struck me
first, it was Meredith's mom. The moment I stepped out of the car she greeted me with a close hug only a mother
can give. Everyone I met expressed so much warm love and acceptance the day before the wedding. I stayed and
helped as I listened in on their stories- as their friends gushed over who Meredith and Tommy are as people. I felt
so welcome and a part of their lives that the next day felt like seeing two of my good friends get married.
Meredith walked down to "Penelope's Theme" from The Brother's Bloom- twisted, revamped and improved by their
friends Matt and Tim. I've been listening to this song on repeat as I culled through the images and it has left me in
goosebumps and watery eyes.
I may be considered just a vendor, and that's fine. I run a business that provides a product. Meredith and
Tommy, their family, friends and guests allowed this service to be a friendship. Something I strive to create in
the first place, but then something they opted to return as well.
Congratulations Meredith and Tommy. Christ shined through this day. Thank you so much for letting me be there
to see it.
