Sigourney is my one and only life long friend. We have been friends for over 25 years, and often joked about exchanging crockpots or other kitchen appliances on our anniversary.. We have gone through all the highs and lows of life together. Sigourney taught me how to ride a bike, tie my shoes and even how to downhill ski. She at times was an older sister to me during the lows of life and she has always challenged me to make myself better. Through our differences she has taught me about compromising and being a friend to the ones you love. She is one of the most loyal and fiercely devoted people I have ever met. She lives life passionately and isn't afraid of doing hard things and fighting for what you believe in.
After Sigourney graduated from the University of Michigan she moved to El Salvador to work as a missionary. She has chosen a life serving the community and children of La Libertad.
This spring I received THE "Guess what?" text from her. My heart skipped a beat and I immediately texted back " YOU'RE ENGAGED!!" After an exchange of those text messages the planning began. Samuel and Sigourney were planning to get married the Saturday after Thanksgiving and her family and a few friends would be invited. I was so excited! I had yet to visit her in El Salvador and it had been some time since we last saw each other.
I bought my plane ticket, my dress and packed my camera equipment. I was ready and excited to embark on my first destination wedding; but even more thrilled that it would be my best friend's wedding day that I would be capturing.
Samuel and Sigourney, thank you for inviting me to be a part of your wedding day. I loved seeing your home where you met and laughing with your family and friends all week long. It was a trip I will never forget. I thank God that he brought the two of you together and I pray you have a grace filled marriage, full of laughter and memories. Cheers!
