these two. a Kauai destination wedding. nothing short of perfect.
i could probably write for days about this wedding. not only did two of my best friends get hitched, but they have a story that puts everyone in a little love spell. they grew up on the same island off the coast of maine, living in a community of fishermen. liked each other before age 10. started dating at 15, and were married 6 years later. Sam is a lobsterman, amelia is his sternwoman. they tied a fisherman’s knot at their ceremony, and shared the meaning of true love with friends and family.
i was so lucky to be with them on this day, because i love these two so, so much. amelia has undoubtedly taught me more than i have taught her about having a heart of gold. sam reminds us all of the beauty of working so hard for someone else, and what gentle kindness can do for the world.
here’s to hearts bigger than words.
