I’m always surprised by how creative my couples are. The effort and the time, that goes into what they do and how they have done it. There is usually always a story, as to why they have done something as well.
And one thing I’ve come to truly appreciate, is that the couples who are booking me now, don’t think of weddings like weddings.
I’ve said it so many times, but now, I’m seeing it right in front of me.
All the time.
Spend the whole day, doing what makes you happy.
And when that happens, it makes for a hell of a celebration.
As I sat in the backseat, driving through the dirt roads, one of the guys point out the window to a home, on a small hill in the distance, “That’s the one. That is James’s sister’s home”.
We are in a place that is rugged and untouched. The ground is made up of wild grass, trees and animals sleeping on the hot dirt roads. I could see mountains on both sides of the car and when I looked at my phone, there was no reception, anywhere.
This location. This feeling of seclusion. It’s foreign to me.
I never got to grow up in a place like this, but for Sally and James, this was normal. This was their upbringing.
Where we were, was a place called Earlando. And it’s presence, is something that I hope everyone gets a chance to experience.
I was told that this was one of, if not, the first Earlando wedding.
I hope that this post inspires anyone who wants to break from the traditional wedding venue. I hope it encourages you to pick what you love and nothing less.
I hope it lets you feel comfortable, if you want to leave the pack.
