Marathon Key, Florida | Pearl Year Anniversary
Theresa and Brian have been married for 30 years and today got to celebrate their Pearl Anniversary in the Florida Keys. The Snooks came from the UK to the Sunshine state to reaffirm their marriage, commitment, and unconditional love with their family. As she was getting ready she told me how their first wedding was planned quickly and they were tight on budget. It was so heart warming to see her get pampered and treated as the beautiful queen she is and get a wedding re-do with their daughters as witness. Her girls were so loving and supportive as she got ready. I typically witness the reverse so this was beyond special. In our emails before meeting she mentioned how proud she was of her daughters and all they've accomplished. (Go check out Kaite's fashion/style Youtube channel and site and give her some love too!) Theresa glowed in her handmade dress from France and had a special touch pinned to her dress. On their wedding day, her mom gave her a locket to wear. Even though her mom could not be there to give it to her again, Brian fashioned the pearl with angle wings in honor of her mother. The whole day was a filled with those special details and was a family centric celebration. What an amazing testament to their daughters and future son in law.
They exchanged vows through the expression of song lyrics and poems. "Cause all of me loves all of you, Love your curves and all your edges". My favorite was that their daughters also took part and read verses from plays that rest of the family then followed suit in reciting along with them. It was truly an honor to witness the inside jokes of this family, see their closeness, and capture their inspiring bond. They commemorated the location and their growing family through the sand ceremony. Each member took a tube with colored sand and layered it with sand from the beach of the Florida Keys. They were full of energy, always laughing and their joy was contagious.
Drew and I can't wait to to connect with them in the UK or even in Rome, Italy next year! Getting to know the Snooks was an honor and we'll be staying in touch so we can connect on their turf soon :) Safe travels home, and y'all come back soon now ya hear?!
