Outdoor Southern Wedding
From the window I could see the changing leaves falling to the ground. There was one tree, just outside the house, with vibrant red and orange leaves that seemed to frame the farmhouse on the hill. I could hear her bridesmaids in the other room laughing with Elizabeth, who could not have been more calm. She is always calm - confident, but calm. She has this way of inviting stillness to a space and I imagine her friends eagerly share their lives with her because of that stillness.
Troy loves that about Elizabeth. He told me how he loved that she was determined. He loves her compassionate, loving heart and I saw that first hand throughout their wedding day.
Together, they don't give up on others. They are constantly building up those around them, whether it's through crossfit, a Cardinals game, or a movie night.
Isaac and I stood at the top of a hill with Troy, watching her get closer and closer. And then she was walking over to Troy, the tall grass brushing the lace on her dress. He turned around and she smiled like she hadn't smiled all day. Because when they are together, joy bursts forth. They laughed, the held each other, and they looked out over the hills of changing colors.
You can feel the peace they have from being together when you're with them. You can see their love for each other and their love for friends and family, too. But the thing that you and I can see that they can't? You and I can see that they are lifting others higher without even knowing it.
