The whole day was powered by the most radiant of smiles. Not just the bride’s own spectacular smile, but from everyone. From her groom, to their parents, to their relatives, to their friends, to everyone. By itself, that vibrance is rare magic. The day probably seemed like it couldn’t be any more special, until Alex stepped up to speak to his guests. He shared the struggles both families had faced battling illnesses in previous years, explaining the meaning of the bombonieres on the table – a donation to the Cancer Council. He stumbled on his words as Michelle got up to join him by his side, a silent, but present source of strength to help him through. And so I knew, that every one of those smiles was etched in the joyful grit of life – in sickness and in health. To see all those moments together, in one day, is rare magic.
Michelle and Alex’s stunning wedding can also be seen in the current issue of Ever After magazine.
