I met Bethany and Jarrod a little over a year ago and watching them grow in their love for each other has been an honor. They've been hit with some serious challenges, but they've faced those challenges head on, together showing stoicism and bravery in the face of adversity.
I've learned a lot from these two, about life, love and what it means to be an adult. Fun fact: there's no right or wrong answer. That's because life can be incredibly complicated and confusing, but it can also be beautiful, fun and silly. And while there's no set way to life live or be an adult, being true to your self seems like a good place to start. This is, perhaps, the greatest lesson I've learned from Bethany and Jarrod. They know what they like and love, and they aren't afraid to pursue those passions.
Of course, all of the things Bethany and Jarrod love were reflected in their wedding, from portraits at Fenton Street Market to the use of local vendors to make their day so special. They decorated tables with favorite childhood books and hand-picked their favorite wines to share with guests. What stood out most about their celebration, however, was how Bethany and Jarrod made their day not just about themselves, but about their friends and family.
This couple truly exemplifies that old adage about love being patient, kind, and always persevering. I'm convinced their love for each other -- and life -- will lead them to a future full of happiness, and I can't wait to see where it takes them. Congratulations, friends!
