September 5, 2015

The details of their wedding were some of my all-time favorites, from Marina’s choice in dress & shoes (you can never go wrong with Hayley Paige and Christian Louboutin) to the wedding favors honoring their heritage, to the gorgeous backdrop of the monastery gardens at St Francis Hall for their reception. But as beautiful as the details were, nothing could compare to the sweetness and beauty of Kosta & Marina’s love for each other. They beamed bright on their wedding day, and I’m confident their love burns even brighter today than it did the day they said “I do.”

I could tell you some other superficial things about myself— I love dark chocolate and red wine, I love DC for it’s grand architecture and rich history, I have a husband I adore, a strong marriage, a darling baby girl, a quaint old brick home, and a love for strong coffee & a good book. 

But if you really want to know me, here are a few things that matter:

I never get tired of weddings.
I tear up at almost every first kiss.
I think pretty & styled is nice, but real life is beautiful. 
I would rather cook for a friend than buy a meal out.
I care more about having a beautiful soul than a perfect body.
I cherish every lingering morning, and end every night with a kiss. 
I believe marriage is one of the greatest earthly gifts anyone can receive.
I believe in telling your story, not my own version of it.
