The Big Day: And in that moment…

Aaron knew I liked to read when we were “in the friend zone” and a few months later, when he could resist me no longer (ha), he started to reveal his feelings very slowly via books he lent me. The last time this happened, he loaned me his copy of Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. (You can read a downloadable PDF of the book here.)

In the book, Aaron included photographs of different areas with shared meaning to us, but most importantly, he highlighted this line for me.

And in that moment, I swear we were infinite. 

And I knew exactly what he meant. Without going too much into the actual story itself, that line perfectly described that moment of realization that “we” were real. Freedom over our previous lives, etc. etc. I guess you could say that line from that book sealed our fate.

Anyways, we feel compelled to include this in our wedding day in some way.

Aaron created this little logo the other day and I really like it. We’ll include it on some of our stuff. It’s already on our website.

We also like that there’s a hidden story to us behind that infinity symbol – at the surface an infinity symbol makes total sense on a wedding day. A union that lasts forever sorta thing (duh!). But to us, the infinity symbol represents something else – the story of our beginning. We probably won’t explain it much beyond this blog post, so consider yourselves “in the know.”

p/s: On a lighter note, A Practical Wedding and A Printable Press just released this amazing (and free) printable modern banner. I’ve already downloaded mine!

p/p/s: If I seem a bit somber, it’s because I was up until 1 am painting that dang office! One more coat to go! It’s looking quite faboosh if I do say so myself.

    That is the cutest story ever! I’m kind of obsessed with that logo. It’d make a perfect tattoo. ;)

    And I’m on pins and needles waiting to see your office!!!!

      I was thinking the same thing about the tattoo, Gabbi! I showed Aaron a pic of your hubby’s tattoos and his mouth gaped open! So impressive!

    I am obsessed with that infinity logo! It is just so simple and gorgeous, and I love that it came from such a personal place (and that the perks of being a wallflower was involved, because that book is awesome). I’m working on making some little drawings for our wedding invitations and such, and it is surprisingly difficult to come up with something that feels exactly right, so kudos to Aaron!
