This is a story of nothing but pure love, joy, laughter and happiness. Of a wedding of two incredible souls, who made me feel great even though I was frightened like never before. These photographs will tell you more about them and their awesome day. And I’ll tell you a story about winning two of my greatest fears ever, combined.
Danilo and I wanted to try how it would be for us if we shot separately, so we booked two separate weddings for this date. Danilo shot a wedding in Provence, while I was supposed to spend a weekend with these two beautiful humans, on their gorgeous pastel destination wedding on Hvar Island, in Croatia. This was one of the last weddings in season, and every time I would think of it, I felt nothing but jitters. The image of me being alone, with this great responsibility and no one to share it with pushed me way out of my comfort zone.
The day has come, and my mum (who is our baby-boy Jona’s favorite babysitter), Jona and I headed south. Towards smells of pine and sea salt. All a sudden I felt comforted. But only for a couple of moments. When we arrived, Jona started looking a bit woozy. As the night went on, we realized he got ill, for the first time ever. I am not sure if there is a way to describe this helpless feeling I’ve had.
I haven’s closed my eyes entire night. Tired, scared and not ready for the day, I went to meet Tove and Zijad the following morning. While waiting for them to meet me, I was silently panicking at the lobby bar. Re-thinking my life choices, my job, and all the things that brought me to where I was at the moment… Two smiling faces appeared in front of me. Tove and Zijad. These two adorable souls instantly brought some beautiful energy. After a couple minutes of talk, I already knew everything was going to be just fine… At least of the reason why I was here in the first place. They gave me strength I needed at this very moment, and I knew I have to pay them back, my way.
I quit ugly thoughts, remembered all my law of attraction principles, and armed myself with energy of hope, love and happiness. Back at hotel, Jona already looked way better, and I knew it’s all coming back on track. At the end of this incredibly inspiring day, I felt all different. I rarely went out of my comfort zone, and this day showed me how great it can be to go out, make myself vulnerable and open for new experiences life brings me. It all reminded me how after every storm the sun comes back out again. And how blessed I am to live the life I chose to live: spending every single day with my favorite boys, and witnessing most memorable moments of families who let me into their lives, at least for a day.
I don’t know a better way to end this little story but with this game changing quote by C.S. Louis…
“There are far better things ahead then any we leave behind.”
