sometimes life doesn't go the way you plan.
this is an important lesson to learn.
sometimes when you're a bride planning a wedding, you need emergency gallbladder removal 3 days before the actual event.
that's what happened to marie.
no, i'm not kidding.
marie and joel kind of became my wedding heroes for this season. they showed such grace, strength, flexibility, and love for each other in the midst of things that were less than perfect. they totally practiced the commitment and ability to deal with life's curveballs before they'd even said "i do."
i admire that.
and as you can see below, even though all didn't go quite as planned, it was an amazing day.
marie & joel, congratulations. all the best in your new life together!
