I believe that every bride that comes my way was sent to me for a purpose by the Big Guy. LouAnne is one of those brides.

Almost a year ago, one of my former brides sent me an email. She works at an AMAZING jewelry shop. She called me to tell me of a couple that I just HAD to work with that came into the store, wedding ring shopping. She passed my information along to them. A few days later, I got an email from the bride. We corresponded for a few days, then set up a meeting. We agreed to meet at the Emory Starbucks because it was a little more logistically friendly for her. When I got there, I didn’t see anyone that looked like they were waiting on a meeting. Everyone there had their faces in laptops, or were in deep conversation with a friend. I sat, thrilled that I was early, and waited. A few minutes later, I got a call from LouAnne. “We’re here” she said. Her voice sounded strangely familiar, but I thought nothing of it (she has one of those voices). When I saw her, my jaw dropped; I recognized her immediately. How I didn’t put the unique name LouAnne together with that voice I don’t know. LouAnne was a close family friend when I was a kid. I was in theater with her. If you know theater folk, you’ll know that we are like family. I couldn’t believe it. We both stood there, in the middle of a Starbucks, stunned. LouAnne was a guest at my own wedding, many many many years ago. I couldn’t believe it. She couldn’t believe it. We couldn’t believe it. To compound the inevitability of it all, they were getting married at Glendalough Manor. Glendalough is one of my preferred venues. I would have met her regardless of the amazing referral that came from Kelly…though that certainly helped! Thanks Kelly!

It’s an unbelievable story, for an unbelievably wonderful couple. Needless it say, it was a wedding seeped in elegance and grace, because that’s LouAnne. Yeah….just wait until you see her. Wow!!

Onto the show-

…..then came a series of thoughtful toasts, and gifts presented by their children. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
