This is just one of those wedding days that we just didn’t want to end. There are a lot of ingredients necessary to make a great wedding film, and this wedding had all the right parts. Even more important however, is the message and inspiration that everyone present at Craig and Angela’s wedding walked away with. I LOVE it when brides and grooms have their own written vows. It makes the love, their decision, and their promise so much more real. So much more honest and intimate. They both had the best vows we have ever heard at a wedding. They both hit the nail on the head. Honest, caring and selfless people like Craig and Angela always have people that surround them with the same qualities. You can hear how connected this group of people is just from the awesome toasts included in the highlights film. We also loved that Craig’s family is 100% Scottish! It was great to have Scottish flare infused into the wedding day, especially with the bagpipe player during the ceremony.
But one thing that really resonated with us at Life Stage with Craig & Angela was the life they live. Both Craig & Angela work in Africa (all over the place!) as humanitarian aid workers. And as you hear Craig’s dad say in the film, it’s not a glamorous life. But they ARE changing the world! Melissa and I lived in Mexico as missionaries for a while before starting the business, and our mission and vision for company is the same as these two. I love that. As you will see, Craig & Angela definitely know how to throw a party,but every guest left that night with a call to action to “Get Involved”. As a photographer, Angela turned photos she took (of amazing people and children that are suffering) into place settings and gifts to everyone so that they could walk away from their wedding at GET INVOLVED in something bigger than their blessed lives in the United States.
The “community” felt at this wedding was how it should be. The celebration was incredible, and the “message” of that day still resonates with us. Thank you so much Craig & Angela for not only inviting us into your lives as your wedding historians, but also as friends. Friends, family and bloggers, DEFINITELY leave a comment here if you enjoyed this glimpse into their wedding day!
