Vanessa and Lucas

“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. ” ~ The Velveteen Rabbit

I’ve heard this verse read at weddings a couple of times, and it’s one of my favorite. And it is truly apt for Vanessa and Lucas.

These two people were joined together when they were kids through tragedy and were then wrenched apart by circumstance and a choice made from necessity.

Fate, as it were, is a romantic. Try as you might to tease it, to taunt it, its decision once made, may be impossible to escape.

Vanessa and Lucas found their way back to each other, and traversed not without sacrifice and challenge, from young love to family, and now to marriage. And before anyone was the wiser, Real happened along the way.

Thanks so much for sharing your day with me, guys. It was a privilege.
