Wedding Date on Aug 29, 2021

Julia and Shelby radiate joy. To be with them is to be comforted, assured, and affirmed. Together, they're unstoppable. What a gift it was to celebrate this wedding day with these two and their chosen family! As a queer person, having a hand in a queer love story is life-giving, and let me tell you I GOT MY LIFE seeing these two commit to be each other's person! There wasn't a dry eye in the room during the wedding ceremony and not a face without a smile as they were pronounced as wives, even when we had to move inside for rain at the last minute! I've been to plenty of weddings, but even I found myself emotional when Shelby and Julia read their vows to each other. I especially saw myself in Shelby's words. "I've always had a love-hate relationship with the phrase 'it's always been you'. If it had always been you, I would have accepted myself by loving you so much sooner." This is the story for so many of us who sometimes can't see a future for ourselves that involves the love that we deserve, regardless of race, gender, sexuality, or anything that may divide us. "Our love needed to grow, needed the safety to know that it can be free, good, and whole just as it is." UGH I could cry again if I don't move on! J & S, yours is a wedding day I won't soon forget. Thank you for having me, and thank you for your bravery to celebrate your love through life's storms. Congratulations! "You're the soul who understands The scars that made me who I am Through the drifting sands of time I got your back and you got mine If you bear a heavy load I'll be your wheels, I'll be the road I'll see us through the thick and thin For love and loss until the end." from "Carried Me With You" by Brandi Carlile Venue: Meadow Hill Farm Videographer: Griffin R Dunn Photographer: Allie Chambers Photography Planner: Jenny Lindsey Officiant: Christian Coon Florals: Jenny Lindsey Ceremony Music: Paul Johnson (Canyon City), Kelsey Carpenter, and Morgan Owen Dresses: BHLDN Bridesmaids Dresses: Birdy Grey Rings: Oak Park Jewelers Invitations and Programs: Truly Engaging DJ: Steve Owen, Some Guy Entertainment Catering: Edley's BBQ Cake: Eastleigh Cakes Soundtrack: "Lonely Nights" by Lost Terra, and "Lights" by Canyon City via Musicbed griffinrdunn.com/
