My sister is getting married this weekend. I know some of you who know me are trying to figure this out because I am indeed an only child. I’ll explain…
Being in the business of soul mates, you see alot of love stories. You hear of fate bringing two lives together. And “just knowing” this other person was meant to be in your life. But is it possible that fate brings you more than just your spouse? Perhaps it also brings us our friends who become our family.
When Morrisa and her mom contacted us about doing Morrisa’s wedding a year and a half ago – we were booked already for 6/6/09. They talked about changing the date, looking at other options, ect. (They even tried a little bribery!) Tammy told me stories of her only child who had met the man of her dreams. Sent me photos she had taken of their engagement day and their love. I was getting sucked into getting attached to them immediately and had a instant bond with these people. There were unexplainable coincidences, a comfort in speaking with them, and a feeling that one only gets with someone who was meant to be in their lives.
After talking for several weeks about what to do to make it work, and perhaps feeling like some other lucky photographer was going to gain these clients that I was calling friends, fate stepped in. The clients we had booked for that day called. Their reception venue had double booked for that date, and they needed to change their wedding date to a later date. After making the changes with them I could not call them fast enough. I dialed the numbers and I couldn’t get ahold of anyone. Morrisa was in class and Tammy in a meeting. I sent an email. Minutes went by with my heart pounding. I could not believe what had just transpired. Finally, the phone rang. It was Morrisa in tears screaming “Are you serious?” I was stunned, for one that I had someone who wanted us to be a part of their day SO badly, and 2 that it actually worked out. From that moment on, it’s been a whirlwind of crazy connections that remind me that these people were meant to be in my life.
When you are planning your wedding, or living your life with your soul mate, don’t forget to look around at the people there by your side. Because fate brings us more than just our spouses. Wether it be your parents, your friends, or… your sister.
I love you M~ and am so excited for your day tomorrow! I can’t wait to witness my soul sister marry her soul mate.
