“We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.”
Edric and Julia had these words read at their ceremony, and they squeezed my heart from every direction. They felt so right for Edric and Julia. These two tea-loving, indie video game playing, joyful lovebirds are the sweetest, kindest, smartest, and warmest people you’ll ever meet. And they are not weird – at all. But they describe themselves as playfully nerdy and lovers of all things Star Wars, and they make absolutely no excuses for it. They are ambitious, intelligent, beautiful, and genuine, and they are perfect for each other.
Bearing witness to a perfectly compatible match such as Edric and Julia’s is difficult to describe. The level of joy is deep. It’s satisfying. There is a sense of peace and rightness with the world of love. I feel as though everything is going to be ok because these two were brought together, and I know that I’m not the only one that feels this way because their sweet wedding at Turnip Rose Promenade in Costa Mesa was a giant family affair with boatloads of joy and celebration. Julia and Edric are both incredibly sentimental – Julia had fabric from both her grandmother’s wedding dress and her mother’s wedding dress wrapped around her bouquet, and her jewelry came from women in her family as well as from Edric. The ceremony included emotional readings from many friends, and family members were ever present with hugs and kisses. The ‘happiness factor’ was off the charts, my dear readers. It was joy in it’s purest form, and today we get to enjoy all of the heart-tugging moments from the First Look to the ceremony.
We’ll be sharing more of Edric and Julia’s Costa Mesa wedding at Turnip Rose Promenade tomorrow with loads of blush details and lovely moments. It’s going to be a joyful week here on the bloody-blog!
