Small frames lined the table outside the ballroom doors. Silver ones. Gold ones. White ones, too. Inside? Black and white wedding pictures — a few in color — of generations past. Grandparents. Great-grandparents. Their parents and siblings, too. Holding hands, holding each other and holding all the hope in the world. Of a bright future. Of an exciting tomorrow. Of a life. Together (and forever.) That table, without knowing it, held hundreds and hundreds of years of faithfulness and commitment on its shoulders — and stories, oh-so many stories. Some surely told, some surely not. Ups and downs. Sickness and health. Richer and poorer. Each couple transforming as the photographer clicked the shutter, just moments after they said, “I do.” From two into one. That’s what these two inherited. Something far more valuable than mountains of money, lots of land or precious jewels. But a heritage. A legacy of love. Built on a firm foundation and passed from one couple to the next.

Your joyfulness is contagious. Your smiles infectious. Your kindness unmatched.

That’s when it hit us. The power of the moment. The impact on generations to come. Each time we snapped the shutter, we might’ve taken the photograph that’ll sit on that same table. Years from now. At Kierstin and Andy’s daughter’s wedding. Or their granddaughter’s. And beyond. That’s why we love what we do. Partly for the moments  we’re in, but mostly for the ones that’ll happen for the next fifty or one hundreds years (or beyond), when twenty-somethings with the last name Saldana will flip through their mother’s, grandmother’s  or great-grandmother’s wedding album and know, not just by seeing, but by feeling, how much their dad loved their mom.
Which, in Kierstin and Andy’s case, is more than words can describe and only pictures can explain. Kierstin and Andy, let’s start with the most important thing: we love you both. A lot. Your joyfulness is contagious. Your smiles infectious. Your kindness unmatched. Thank you for laughing through the day with us. It was one we didn’t want to end. And if it’s even a small glimmer of what’s ahead for your marriage, then your family can rest assured that the best chapters of its legacy aren’t in the past. But are being written. Right now. For anyone who doubts whether true love still exists, we dare them to start scrolling. They won’t doubt anymore…
