By definition, to unmoor is 'to bring to the state of riding with a single anchor after being mooredby two or more.' While surely this has a nautical undertone, the definition itself paints more a picture of deep love to me. And when I think of a couple that this embodies, I look no further than Tom and Tali.
This past fall on a crisp, quintessential October afternoon, these two said 'I do', with a backdrop of a dusty sky, crimson leaves, and the very skyline that holds every chapter of a promising story. Two of my favorite memories from the day were not even necessarily ones that Tom and Tali had together, though there were plenty of those that I look back upon so fondly. But instead, they were the separate fleeting occasions that I got to have with them individually. Tom's sincerity in his anticipation, as he waited for his bride before the first look, and Tali, who gave me the most endearing wink not two seconds before stepping foot down the aisle with her dad. These were small pockets of the day, but they depict the kinds of characters these two are. Both are so grounded in who they are as individuals that when they come together, they only need but one anchor indeed. As a unit, they are strong enough.
A ginormous thank you to Tali + Tom's families and friends, who were paramount in making the day seamless, a riot, and making us feel like one of the crew. One of my favorite parts of my job is meeting the tribe from which the couple comes from, and these two have roots that run deep and run proud--I am honored to have been a part of it all.
And infiinite gratitude to the 'A-team' of vendors I was lucky enough to work alongside all day-- this community continues to blow my mind with the talent it holds and the humble humans behind it all.
