Killer Smile |fredericton wedding photographer|

A smile is a curve that sets everything straight. ~Phyllis Diller

This weekend I learned a very valuable lesson courtesy of my friend Heidi. Just over two weeks before her very carefully planned double wedding she suffered a terrible accident that has me cringing just to think of it. Sparing the details it’s enough to say that she is truly lucky to have been able to “walk” down the aisle to marry the man she has been waiting for all her life and to share this very special day with two dear friends. From the moment I heard the news I felt so sorry for her that such a tragedy could spoil what I had hoped would be her perfect day.

Silly me! Although I know she spent the day in pain there was no room for pity here. With courage, determination, and what is the most positive attitude I have ever witnessed, Heidi embraced every moment of her wedding day. I had to hold back tears as I watched her smile throughout the process. I was seriously reminded that life could throw much worse our way and we should be thankful for those blessings that we have. In her eyes marrying David was more important than the wedding, sharing her joy with family and friends more significant than partying with them, and showing her daughter and step-son that love and becoming a family were better than the event itself.

Thank you Heidi for not only sharing your day with me but for sharing your spirit. And for those killer smiles! Who would have known it was possible especially when the something blue is your cast – and your foot. Congrats also to your friends Lacy and Darcy…
