It might be a faux-pas to say something like “favorite clients”, ESPECIALLY when they aren’t even your clients.
So I won’t say that.
I’m not sayin, just sayin.
But if I had “favorite clients”, it might look like the thank you card Surya sent her bridesmaids that started “Dear best bitches ever..”
And surely, if i were to have “favorite clients” they would sing Ingrid Michaelson’s “You and I” to their husband at the altar.
And it would sound like “Love Is a Big Deal”, the song Miya, Surya’s sister wrote for them, and sang for their first dance.
And it would dance like Nick and Surya danced their first dance.
And it would feel like the breeze of the breathtaking mountain they would get married on.
And my “favorite clients”, if I had some, would party like Nick and Surya partied, till all hours of the night, attempting to, but alas unable, to relish every moment of the most special day they have known because it was simply too much.
It would seem like a dream.
Which would prompt to my “favorite clients” to email something like this:
i can’t believe i haven’t written yet. but i just feel like nothing i can put into sentences, is enough.
it was an epic win for love. the whole day. it was one of those lovely moments when there are too many inspired and genuinely happy people for the world not to change just a little.
and having you and jonas there. so amazing and in-tune with your craft . . . and so happy doing it. i just can’t thank you enough. truly, there are not two other souls that could have been there and it been what it was.
random fact about me, from probably ages 7 to 9, i was petrified that i was dreaming. like my whole life was a dream and i was going to wake up and be a baby and have to do it all over. lighthearted for a little child. hahah.
but i’ve found myself these last few weeks feeling that again. that it couldn’t have been that perfect. that our friends didn’t encircle us that last song on the dance floor and sing along with us at the top of their lungs. that i will wake up that morning, once again. and it will be just fine. but just that, fine. not the magic that it was.
but we got the slideshow a couple days ago.
and it was real.
and i can’t thank you enough for being a part of that. we are forever grateful. and while we can’t do it all again, we could take you out for a drink and a bite next time you are in town. hope you’ll let us.
It seemed like everyone at this wedding was as happy that Nick and Surya were marrying each other as they were.Â It was as if they all knew, having known them, that if they didn’t, the world would be worse off.
Surya summed it up perfectly…
“It was an epic WIN for love.”
Really, it was an epic win for me.Â Thank you Jonas, my friend, for asking me to come along.Â This was one to remember.
And thank you Nick and Surya for welcoming me into your world.Â For being vulnerable enough to be yourselves and letting me in.Â It was, and you are, beautiful.
If I had “favorite clients”, that’s what it would be like.
