Tim was deployed in Iraq at the time he first contacted us. Paola was back in Fort Worth, trying to work on all things “wedding”, and Tim told us he was trying to help out in any way he could. We were fortunate to tag along for Tim & Paola’s engagement shoot last year with Meshali Mitchell Photography (you can check to Tim & Paola’s fusion slideshow here), so we were looking forward to their wedding for some time. At the engagement shoot, Paola gave me a big stack of postcards – from all over the world – that Tim had sent to her throughout their relationship. Each one had a sweet little note or simply a silly picture Tim had added his own creative touch to. All those postcards were such a beautiful visual of their love for one another.
You may recall that particular Saturday this March when it just rained . . .and rained. . . and rained. But despite the dreary weather outside, Tim and Paola’s wedding was so fun and full of laughs. We love this song because it feels so relaxing and peaceful – which is about how we would describe Tim and Paola. Yet, they also share this playful silliness, which is why we wanted included a short snippet of their vows. Tim also promised to always laugh at Paola’s “T-Rex” impression, which she also promised to do as long as she was able. (We don’t recall the “T-Rex” making an appearance at the wedding, but we may require a performance before we hand over their film.)
