Like most wedding vendors, Studio Jay's busy seasons are spring and summer. Last winter, with some quiet down time, Tom and I discovered Christmas movies on the Hallmark Movie Channel. We did a movie marathon of corny, sappy, G-rated flicks and we thoroughly enjoyed it!
Fast forward through another busy season and as life began to quiet down for us, we turned the TV on to discover the Hallmark channel showcasing a series of WEDDING movies. Who knew?! Yes, corny, sappy, G-rated, same actors, same plots, predictable. And with titles like All of My Heart, The Perfect Wedding, My Favorite Wedding, A Perfect Bride, Wedding Bells, and Bridal Wave. I'm so lucky to be married to a man who loves popcorn and chick-flicks.
Always on the lookout for blog topics, Hallmark wedding movies seemed like a perfect subject. I started watching with pen and pad close by to jot down sweet sentiments and wedding advice one liners. Here's my short list:
+ you deserve to be with someone who makes you happy + I want to make you laugh the rest of your life + be the best possible you + I want to marry the person who loves me, supports me, and makes me laugh + I want to make all your days happy + brace the imperfections + the important things in a relationship are love, respect, honesty, trust, support, forgiveness, compromise, and listening + let go of the things you can't control + don't settle + there is no such thing as perfect + making a dream come true is hard work + a wedding is a dream turned into reality + love your partner unconditionally + love yourself + marry your best friend
One time I stepped away from the TV and Tom added this profound line from the movie: "I'm glad you're not wearing heels". I laughed, drew a line through that, but then decided otherwise. It's actually great advice for brides. So many choose gorgeous heels that become miserably intolerable after a few hours.
Last, but not least, my favorite: I love you as big as the sky!
