Molly and Sean moved to Boston from Chicago two years ago, so their guests came from near and far (through a late April “winter” storm, according to the news) to be with them on their wedding day. That’s why the ideas of “home” and “welcome” and “warmth” were woven throughout their day. At the heart of it, they wanted to create a space that allowed their friends and family to love on their new city and all of their hopes for their future together.
And I should point out, that didn’t necessarily involve fancy rented china or a band or an expensive princess dress. It did include a rock solid relationship, a group of awesome guests, good eats, and great tunes to dance to. So basically, all the important stuff!
Something I have adored about Molly and Sean right from the start is the intention behind their relationship, their wedding, and their life together moving forward. Molly said something in her vows and she said it far more eloquently than I can recall now… It was something like, “the day we stop challenging each other is the day we become merely passengers of our lives.”
Like, whoa. Can I get an amen to that!?
After all, why would you want to be merely a passenger, when you can be the creator and celebrator of your own story? And so much the better, getting to do it with your best friend by your side.
