We started out this year’s Pride Month with Leigh and Sam’s gorgeous spring wedding at the Greenbriar Inn, and it couldn’t have been a more beautiful celebration.
There’s no way for me to encapsulate this couple’s amazingness better than one of their attendants did during his toast. Matthew grew up in a place that wasn’t very welcoming to the LGBTQ+ community. Surrounded only by examples of straight couples, he never dreamed that the kind of loving, affectionate, passionate relationships he saw in romcoms were accessible to him. But then he found himself in Leigh and Sam’s orbit.
He spoke of how watching them meet, get to know each other, and eventually fall in love gave him the kind of hope he needed in his life. After his toast, there was not a single dry eye in the room, ours included.
This toast was the reminder we all need that while we’re out here living our lives, going through our trials, our triumphs, and even our most uninteresting days – others are taking note and being inspired. We never know how we may touch someone else’s life in a way that truly matters.
Leigh and Sam, we hope you had an incredible time in Santa Fe (and that it wasn’t nearly as hot as it was for us in Texas)!
