It was a beautiful day. The sun was shining and the temperature hovered right under 70 degrees. The puddles from the rain they’d received over the past few days were withering away, and the forecast optimistically promised clear skies. And as Kali stood inside the Barn at Blue Sky Ranch, looking outside, she didn’t just see a beautiful day. She saw the best day ever… and a miraculous answer to many, many prayers.
Smiling, she turned her attention from the weather to the people surrounding her. One by one, she walked around handing out gifts to family and friends, selflessly showing them how much she loved and appreciated them on her special day. Then, heading back to the bridal quarters, she continued preparing for the day she had dreamt about for many months.
Before she knew what had happened, it was 3:30 and time for Kali to be married. Alone in the bridal suite, she took a deep, is-this-really-happening-right-now breath, then headed up the stairs she would soon descend to meet her father… and then her groom. The moment Kali appeared, there were many audible gasps and whispers regarding how beautiful she looked… and Ricky’s face as she walked toward him was completely wonderful and priceless. It was a lovely moment, a sweet ceremony, and a heartfelt beginning to a beautiful marriage.
Ricky and Kali, I can’t even begin to describe how much I’ve grown to love you two over the past several months. Your love for each other is inspiring, and your welcoming, authentic personalities are a joy to be around. Thank you for trusting Lucas and I to document your very own best day ever, and we truly hope that these photographs cause your heart to swell with joy at the precious memories they contain.
