I knew when I met Bradley and Victoria and heard about their proposal (at the top of a lighthouse, surrounded by their entire family) that their love was steadfast and that family meant the world to them. Having the opportunity to witness those truths coming to life on their wedding day was a beautiful privilege.
From a pile of teary-eyed groomsmen, to multiple sets of parents coming together side-by-side to honor the couple, I was repeatedly taken aback by the demonstration of love on this perfect June day.
As I listened to the sister-of-the-bride give a toast to the couple at the end of the night, I was captivated by how fitting her words (inspired by the song from Hearts & Colors) were for Brad and Victoria and am grateful that she allowed me to share a snippet here:
“I will stand as a lighthouse
I will shine through every wave, every crash,
every single storm from here on out.
I will be like a lighthouse,
standing tall with a deeper purpose.
Made of safety, pride and pure might.
I shall be that for you;
A lighthouse that shines day and night,
On the brightest of days and through the darkest nights.
Always where you can follow me home.”
Here’s to sharing a love that is brighter than a lighthouse and deeper than the ocean, Brad & Victoria! Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Jackson!
