So one of the things that our friends Sabine, Uldis, and Egils was nice enough to do for us was compile together a whole bunch of wedding wishes that you shepsexuals recorded yourselves from around the world. They then put it together into this wonderful video that they showed us right before we started all of our wedding festivities. Let me just say that it was an absolutely perfect way to set the tone for our wedding. In fact, we said something to that effect when we first saw the video a few weeks back (start around 9:45):
That being said, it wasn’t until a few days later that I was able to really express how the video made me feel. After all, I was attacked by quite a few feels at the time. Plus I was experiencing a feeling that I hadn’t really felt up until that point, but proceeded to keep feeling all throughout the rehearsal dinner, the wedding, the wedding reception, and even the brunch we hosted at our hotel the next morning. I remember there being this moment at my rehearsal dinner where I was standing up and looking at everyone who was seated at that giant horseshoe table. I saw all these different and amazing people from all different walks of life and all different parts of the world. Literally, there were people there from the middle of backwoods nowhere in the deep south to people who had traveled from the other side of the planet. And they were all gathered together in one place because they loved us and wanted to celebrate this huge step with us. They also just happened to be amazing people, and it was so insane to see them all together laughing and talking and having a great time. It was such an amazing, surreal experience to just step back and see that. I can’t even begin to describe what an insanely great feeling it is, and it’s one that just kept going throughout the entire weekend.
The thing is, I get the same feeling whenever I watch this video. Once again, here are all these different people from all different corners of the world from all different walks of life. But they all want to send us their love, because our videos and your relationship mean something to them. I’m not exaggerating when I say that, every time I watch this video, I can’t stop smiling. It’s given a whole new meaning to the word “shesexual” for me. Which is probably why I’ve watched it through a number of times already. I can only hope that you guys experience even a fraction of that same feeling when you guys watch the video below:
Also, as a side note, as you can see from the thumbnail, I took it upon myself to compile together a collage of all the faces of people who submitted wedding wishes to us. I had to blur that collage so that the text of the image could be easily readable. But I felt bad blurring everyone’s faces, so here’s the original collage I put together. Consider it a little thank you to all of you guys who submitted! Just know that the arrangement and size of the stills isn’t meant to give anyone priority over anyone else. I was literally just trying to meet the challenge of compiling together several dozen images, all of entirely different sizes and aspect ratios. It was surprisingly difficult lol.
