#571: oh maya.

so true! Especially on your wedding day! We made our wedding all about our guests! We felt that it was their love and support that got the both of us where we were and that would continue to help us as we grew together in marriage and we wanted each one of them to understand and know that!

We had a HUGE picture collage with @ least 1 picture of each guest. We also had a thank you to our guests in our program and a dedicated prayer and poem to them.

After our BM and MOH toasted us, both Erik and myself toasted to OUR GUESTS!


We included a HUGE play area for the children so that they would not be left out either.

We had a wish/prayer table set up with colored slips of paper where guests could write advice, wishes and prayers for us and place the in a HUGE apothecary jar. Every once in a while we pull one out read it and reflect on it! I cannot tell you how that has gotten us through so many moments!

I love this post... It made me realize that everything you have felt in your life, whether in the past or today can't just be erased by time, because once its felt through your heart, it will be marked forever.. It can never be changed by the things you do or the words you say... Thank you for that!

Nate wants to call our baby Maya if it's a girl, but we just can't because it sounds terrible with our real surname. This quote made me wish even more that we could, though.
