Every once in a while I’ll have a wedding that will somehow without being prompted detach me from my current surroundings and force me to step back and look at where I am and how I view this job as a whole. Spoiler alert, it’s easy to get jaded in this line of work. Sometimes, Country club A is hard to differentiate from Country Club B and after the 100th time you’ve heard the nearly identical, obviously recycled from google, impersonal speech you start to turn to a robot. I try not to fall into rhythms, but it’s easy to do sometimes. I needed to be snapped out of that. I needed to hear a speech from Margarets brother that almost chocked me up. I needed to dance under an open air on a 76 degree night with an ocean breeze. I needed to be around someone like Margaret & Josh who had zero pinterest ideas or presuppositions as to what their photos were to look like. I needed a reminder that youth is fading and to keep your eyes forward but to stop and enjoy today, too.
