Hart + Connolly Wedding

Leave a comment

Pinterest ain’t got nothin’ on the Hart-Connolly wedding. Every detail (down to socks for tired dancing feet in wedding color boxes decorated with a little gem and a s’more bar) was covered. I challenge you, reader, to find a detail that was not done (plus a little something extra). Check it out from pre-wedding pampering to post-ceremony dancing:

It was a true honor to celebrate with Natalie and Daniel, not only Natalie’s good sense to choose a man named Daniel from Northeast Ohio, but their love and respect for one another and the start of their married lives together. And the added bonus of this event was that it brought together some of my all-time favorite people all in one place, maximizing the opportunity to actually see all these beautiful people and to get recharged from the joy of being together.

It also gave us the opportunity to see many of our Midwest family and neighbors, a much needed trip that we would not have scheduled without the good excuse to celebrate with Natalie and Daniel. And it allowed for a trip to the family farm, one of my favorite places on this earth, and the place where I always leave feeling truly loved, capable, and ready for the next challenge.

We even got a chance to see this lovely sister from another mother. This visit officially allows me the chance to tell her will-be-born-in-February baby that I first met him/her when they were -3 months old.

The weekend was packed (I don’t believe we could have squeezed in one more activity), and just what I needed.

Congratulations, Natalie and Daniel! Here’s to a lifetime together!
