October 1st is how I want every October to start. It was the most perfect weather and you could see leaves changing colors over the lake behind Templeton Landing. I found Michelle hiding out looking stunning, making sure Anthony wouldn’t see her until right before the big moment. While things seemed serious with her and her bridesmaids, checking on rings and the marriage license, things were definitely different with Anthony and his groomsmen. These guys were hysterical! When they weren’t teasing Anthony, they were teasing each other. And when they weren’t doing that, they were watching the Bill’s game on someone’s cellphone. And the Bill’s were winning so it was a very happy group. Anthony kept asking about Michelle, making sure he could step into the hallway without seeing her, and mentioning things she liked, or something she would comment on. You could tell he just loved her so much and was so excited to be marrying her! After everyone was lined up, and we convinced his best man that he couldn’t wear his sunglasses no matter how sunny it was outside, we headed upstairs to the balcony with the beautiful waterfront back drop. By the time Michelle made her way out, everyone looked so excited. And that includes the bees that I don’t think left the couple alone for a moment. But they were focused on each other and didn’t seem to notice. Their vows were incredibly moving. Michelle was crying, but managed to keep it together and I’m not sure how she did! Everything just felt so perfect and I was honored to be witnessing this moment. Finally the hard part was over and it was time to kiss. And kiss they did! Congratulations Anthony and Michelle. It was clear the moment we met that you were meant for each other and I’m happy knowing that a couple like you exists. I wish you a lifetime of happiness!
