Pillars | Lyana + Shelby Wedding
"When one of us is weak, the other is strong."
It’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted a blog. To be honest, it’s not always easy to write these because it feels like no matter what words I grasp for, it never quite exemplifies exactly the immensity of my love and gratitude towards our couples.
Lyana and Shelby - where do I start? Their love makes me want to be a better human being.
Something came up in the interview that we had with them during our adventure shoot. The word “pillars” came up in conversation as a metaphor to describe each other. “When one of us is weak, the other is strong.” It was simple, yet so profound.
Love is when your partner steps up over and over and over… not in spite of your weaknesses or shortcomings, but because of it. Perhaps that’s how we should view relationships - always finding ways to reinforce our lover’s weaknesses and being the strength. Perhaps, equally as important, it also requires us to accept your partner’s love and support when we need it the most.
I don’t know what I did in my past life to deserve the loving, compassionate, inspiring friends like Lyana and Shelby, but I’m grateful I met them. Their wedding was just one day in the many days they will continue to touch people with their love.
I know they’ll continue to be a beacon of light and love for the rest of the world.
Enjoy the film!
