Seconds after Wade and Erika walked down the aisle, I caught this moment. This was their first kiss in the sun after saying I Do and there will be so many firsts to match this epic one. Their first dance, toast, and you know the rest. However, I coach my couples throughout their day to savor it all because the day flies by and postpartum is a real thing that can hit after. So, how does one savor? Taking advantage small moments to sip it all in. For example, I always tell my couples upon their final exit to look at their guests, pause, soak them in, come back for another squeeze with your groom/ bride, take a couple of more steps and pause again. Take it slowwwwly. The rest of your life can wait for your deliberate breaths and will actually thank you for the intentional mindfulness. And maybe we will gather that this fashion is a beautiful way of life.
Congrats to the freshly wed…Erika and Wade!!!
