It started with a warm day. Warm sunlight hammering through the windows of the main house at Devine Ranch. Lighting up everything in a way I’ve never really seen before. Everything was new. And not just because of simple but oh-so-important things such as that. It was new because it was Abby and Chuy’s day. 100% their day. And, as such, the entire event filled with love, joy, passion, romance, tears of happiness, hugs, tender kisses, and laughter to stop you in your tracks reflected them. I could talk about the hay bails their family sat on during the ceremony. Or the floral arrangements that bought the perfect amount of color to the warm day. I really could talk about these things for weeks and never grow tired.
But ultimately, the way that Abby looks at Chuy is the thing that caught me most off gaurd. She melts into him when he’s around. Not in a helpless, hold me kinda’ way, but in a “I trust you with my everything” way. Abby and Chuy bring a sense of old married souls to life. They have a bond and connection that is far beyond most newlywed couples we’ve had the opportunity to work with, and yet they keep the energy level and young spirit of children – playful, always smiling, and the way they touch to say “I love you” without actually saying a word.
. . . sigh . . . This is what it’s all about. This is what dreams are made of. This… This is the perfect day. For two perfect people.
