“Love is like a dog. It makes messes. Loves leaves you little surprises here and there. Sometimes love just wants to go on a nice long walk. Because love loves exercise. It will run you around the block and leave you panting, breathless. Pull you in different directions at once, or wind itself around and around you until you are all wound up and cannot move.”
This poem was beautifully written by Taylor Mali, and eloquently spoken during Lindsay and Dan’s wedding ceremony by Lindsay’s sister, Kaitlin. It was an outdoor ceremony, the sun’s rays streamed through the clouds, and the wind seemed to lift up the words of this poem and swirl them around all of us, and land them directly on Lindsay and Dan. It is a rare occasion that I tear up during a wedding ceremony, but this poem did the trick. Not only because this specific depiction of love is spot on, but also because the poem itself resonates *exactly* with who Lindsay and Dan are as a couple: energetic, playful, full of unending love, and loyal, to name a small few.
The rest of the day followed suit; it was full of playful moments, a handful of tearjerker moments, and had an all-around stress-free vibe, which is a direct reflection of Lindsay and Dan because that’s just who they are: easy going and laid back.
But enough of this talk- take a look at their images so you can see how beautifully emotional Lindsay and Dan’s day was…
