"A SUCCESSFUL MARRIAGE REQUIRES FALLING IN LOVE MANY TIMES, ALWAYS WITH THE SAME PERSON"

- MIGNON MCLAUGHLIN

THIS WISE PASSAGE DESCRIBES SARA AND RYAN WHOLE HEARTEDLY. BOY MET GIRL AND FELL IN LOVE FOR THE FIRST TIME AS FRIENDS. THEN FRIENDS TURNED INTO MORE THAN THEY COULD EVER IMAGINE. THEY FELL IN LOVE EVEN FURTHER WHEN THEY WELCOMED THEIR SWEET BABY GIRL MYA INTO THEIR LIVES. THE DAY OF THEIR WEDDING, I GOT TO PERSONALLY WITNESS THEM FALL IN LOVE ALL OVER AGAIN AS HUSBAND AND WIFE. I HAVE BEEN KNOWING SARA AND RYAN SINCE COLLEGE. WE ALL HAD GREAT TIMES TOGETHER BACK IN THE DAY AND TO BE HONEST...IT DIDN'T SURPRISE ME AT ALL WHEN THEY STARTED DATING. RYAN'S LAID BACK BUT SOCIAL PERSONALITY MESHED PERFECTLY WITH SARA'S BUBBLY AND CARING SPIRIT. THESE TWO HAVE SOME OF THE BEST FRIENDS AS THEIR SUPPORT SYSTEM AND IT IS NOT BECAUSE THEY ARE OUTGOING...IT IS BECAUSE THEY ARE TWO OF THE MOST GENUINE SOULS IN THE WORLD. YOU CAN MEET THEM FOR THE FIRST TIME AND FEEL LIKE YOU MATTER. THEY GO ABOVE AND BEYOND TO HELP OTHERS AND IT JUST MAKES ME PROUD TO KNOW THEM. WATCHING THEM RAISE THEIR DAUGHTER IS ALSO ONE OF THE MOST REMARKABLE EXPERIENCES. THE THREE OF THEM HAVE HAD TO OVERCOME GREAT OBSTACLES EARLY ON AND I CANNOT EVEN IMAGINE HOW I WOULD COPE WITH THEM IF IT WERE ME. THEY HANDLED EVERYTHING WITH GRACE, PATIENCE AND DETERMINATION. BECAUSE OF THEIR LOVE AND CONSTANT SUPPORT FOR HER, THEIR BABY GIRL IS CRUSHING ALL OF HER GOALS. I LOOK UP TO BOTH OF THEM AND THEY ARE CONSTANTLY TEACHING ME THINGS THAT I CAN APPLY TO MY OWN DAUGHTERS LIFE. 

I STILL REMEMBER TALKING WITH THEM ABOUT THEIR DESTINATION WEDDING TO CANCUN, MEXICO AND THINKING HOW CAN I GET THIS LUCKY? MY FRIENDS ARE NOT ONLY INVITING ME INTO ONE OF THE MOST INTIMATE MOMENTS OF THEIR LIVES, BUT THEY ARE TRUSTING ME TO PRESERVE IT THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHS FOR THEM TO REMEMBER FOR GENERATIONS TO COME. IT IS STILL HARD TO NOT GET ALL TEARY EYED THINKING ABOUT HOW GRATEFUL I FEEL. NOT ONLY WAS I EXCITED TO PHOTOGRAPH THEIR WEDDING, I WAS EXCITED TO TRAVEL TO CANCUN WITH THEM TO DO IT. THEIR ROMANTIC DESTINATION WEDDING WAS PERFECT. THE MOON PALACE RESORT IN CANCUN ACTUALLY HAS A CHAPEL FOR CATHOLIC SERVICES, WHICH IS GREAT FOR TRAVELING COUPLES. THE CHAPEL WAS ADORNED WTIH LILIES AND THE ATMOSPHERE WAS FILLED WITH THE BEAUTIFUL SOUNDS OF THE HARP. WHEN SARA AND HER STEPDAD CAME RIDING AROUND THE CORNER IN THEIR HORSE AND CARRIAGE, IT WAS PRETTY MUCH THE MOST PICTURESQUE FAIRY TALE MOMENT I HAVE EVER SEEN. 

  ALTHOUGH WE HAD TO MOVE THE RECEPTION INSIDE BECAUSE OF WEATHER, WE STILL GOT TO ENJOY THE OUTDOOR COCKTAIL HOUR THAT HAD THE MOST TASTY APPETIZERS EVER! THEIR COORDINATOR YANIN MADE SURE THE INDOOR BALLROOM WAS FILLED WITH THE SAME AMBIANCE AND GOOD VIBES THAT THE COUPLE WANTED. THE FACT THAT SO MANY PEOPLE TRAVELED TO CELEBRATE THEM IS A TRUE TESTAMENT TO THEIR GENEROSITY THEY SHOW THEIR FAMILY AND FRIENDS. THE PARTY WAS NON-STOP AND EVERYONE HEAVILY ENJOYED THEMSELVES! 

I HOPE ALL OF YOU IN GOOD OLD LOUISIANA ENJOY ALL OF THESE MOMENTS FROM THEIR EPIC, HEAVILY ROMANTIC AND SUPERB MEXICO DESTINATION WEDDING. IT WAS PERFECT!
