The greatest stories, the stories that stick with our hearts the longest and transform our souls the most, are almost never the simplest stories. Great stories are made from the unexpected moments. The twists and the turns, the mountains and the valleys, or, for Tori and Will, the weather and the bus.

Over 5 years ago during a post-exam week night out in Indianapolis, a girl caught a boy’s eye. Call it luck, call it good timing, call it destiny, but I call it two soul mates on page one of their adventure. Will got Tori’s number and, much to Tori’s surprise, actually called her to ask her on a proper date. Will knew Tori was worth more than a simple text message, and Tori realized that Will was a proper gentleman who knew how to treat a lady. That first date turned into the first year, which turned into the first big move together, and before they knew it, five years, a major move to the east, a major move to the west, and countless adventures together all became a part of their story. And suddenly, on an unseasonably chilly day in May, the next chapter had arrived.

Tori put the final touches on her makeup and slipped into her beautiful Anthropologie gown in the bridal suite at Martin’s Barn, just steps away from their ceremony site where she would say “I do” later that day. For all the standard wedding day nerves that were certainly fluttering in her stomach, for all the stress of a morning spent negotiating transportation for guests, and for all the concern that comes tethered to less-than-perfect weather for an outdoor ceremony, all the frustration that bubbles when the bus bringing half of your guests to the ceremony is over an hour delayed… Tori remained the portrait of a bride focused on all the right things—namely the fact that she would be marrying her favorite human being in a matter of hours. I know this because of all the things that could have caused tears that morning, they never came until the moment that she tapped Will’s shoulder and he turned around, wrapped her in his arms, and reminded her that as long as they were together, it would all be okay.

Despite the stress, despite the chill, despite the twists and turns and mountains and valleys, Tori and Will’s wedding day was an epic day of joy and revelry and bonding and remembering that a wedding is about family and friends coming together to celebrate the fact that two sweet souls—against all odds—found each other in this wild world. The story wasn’t simple, but dangit… it sure was great. Congratulations, Tori and Will <3
