Amber Gustafson, from Amber Events, is wedding coordinator extraordinaire and a dear friend. She was, in fact, Maid of Honor at my wedding.
She posted a beautufully written blog on “The Milestones of Our Lives“, the story of one of her brides and her wedding, a wedding that was almost postponed due to the deaths of a friend and a family member. Yet, they moved forward and life went on.
This story reminds us that, though weddings are planned, often rushed, and only for a few hours on one day, they are a celebration, a monument, a milestone. It may be only one day, but it is a day that will never come again, a day that marks the first day of the rest of a beautiful, wonderful life.
