A letter from Emily…
I love the moment when a bride finds her gown. There’s so much more wrapped up in that moment than just feeling beautiful. When her heart is full, and she’s holding back tears, but she’s not crying because she’s found a pretty dress. She’s crying because she has just placed herself in the very moment she will join her life with the person that she wants to be partnered with, for better or for worse, for forever. She’s all at once catapulted into that sacred moment of union. Surrounded by the love of so many people that are there to celebrate with them.
The emotion of this moment is surfacing from the realization of hope, of promise, and of joy. And the best part? We get to stand right next to her when she is transported there.
I encourage brides to stay there for a moment. Be present in that joy and hope. THIS is the emotion that you’ll cling to in the tough times and the challenges that life brings. This is one important memory you can choose to access when you need to remember why you chose this person. Hard times are inevitable, but the joy and hope of this moment is pure magic. And I’m so grateful that we get to be present with our brides while the experience that magic every day.
So, to answer the question people ask me every day… “How will I know when it’s the dress?”
My response is always “You’ll just feel it.”
