There are weddings and then there are weddings.
If someone decided that weddings should be all the same, I wish weddings would be like Emmi & Tapani’s wedding. For some reason, some weddings creep their way closer to my heart and stay there forever. Love stories always touch me, because I’m a sucker for love. But some stories… they leave an impact on me that never goes away.
I’ve always sort of known Tapani. We grew up in same town and went to same pentecostal church. I met Emmi for the first time when Suvi & Mauno were getting married and Emmi was attending Suvi’s bachelorette party. (Mauno was Tapani’s best man at this wedding.)
So when Emmi contacted us, I was excited.
I got to see many familiar faces. Hear lots of touching speech. Witness many tears (including many of my own). And there was laughter, lots of it. One of my favorite moments was when Emmi’s grandparents sang a song for them. It was sweet beyond sweet and very, very touching.
Also, the venue, Vähä-Hisson tila pretty much rocked my socks of because of it being so AWESOME.
This will be a long post – this story is a bit bigger.
