A cloud of hairspray hung in the air around her, settling slowly around her tresses like early morning dew.
“Do I look all right?” she asked, peering into the mirror and bending to tuck away loose strands. Sunbeams stretched through the window behind her casting soft light on her golden tendrils. The room took a collective breath inward before breaking into excited wedding day chatter. She looked radiant.
Later, in the courtyard, Garett prepared to see Melissa for the first time on their wedding day.
“How do you feel?” I asked. It’s a question I always ask my grooms. Everyone answers differently. Some are excited, nervous, reserved—a whirlwind of wedding day emotion singled down to one word.
“Ready.” He exhaled slow and long, hands playing at the dark rectangular face of his watch when the double doors creaked open behind him. Melissa walked towards Garett’s turned back, her heels clicking softly against the cool sidewalk.
Melissa and Garett,
I’m so honored to have been invited to share in your wedding day! You two filled the day with love, family, laughter, and dancing (seriously, Armenian folks can break it DOWN!). I can’t wait to see what else your lives will bring you!
