“A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears.” – Anne Roiphe
Jessica has one of the most beautiful smiles, so full and expressive, and Michael always brings it out of her. I could see how much it blessed him to see her happy, and how much it meant to him. The "happy wife, happy life" comment often bothers me, because I don't believe anyone should be held responsible for someone else's happiness; that's not true love to seek out joy through another person. That's just pressure. But true love is when you serve one another, and when you remember to tell them that they are enough, that you delight in them, and that you'll never stop choosing love. Take joy in serving one another, dear ones.
On this rainy summer day, Michael, Jess, and their bridal party looked absolutely beautifully classy together! I was crazy about her lavender bridesmaid dresses and the light grey suits of the groomsmen. It was such a beautiful combination. Every single bouquet of the bridesmaids was a little different with a few in common flowers. I loved how Jess kicked off her shoes at one point, and even though it was pouring she never stopped her big powerful smile.
