Gratitude Stories: Steph & Jason’s Wedding

“Two souls but a single thought, two hearts that beats as one.”

– John Keats

Gratitude is the simplest path to a happy life. We’ll be the first to admit that with so much going on each day, it’s so easy to forget. That’s exactly why we created our #GratitudeStories feature. Each week our staff cuts together a one-minute highlight reel from an inspiring Tribute and tells the story behind it. We hope these videos serve as a little reminder to say the nice things in your head and celebrate your friends every single day.tribute-line

This week, we’re thrilled to introduce Anastasia and her friends, Stephanie & Jason. Anastasia reached out to us to help put something special together for their special Wedding Day.

Gratitude Stories: Kris & Brenna’s Wedding

“Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness, of hatred, of jealousy, and, most easily of all, the gate of fear.”

– Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

 We love supporting newlyweds by allowing them to connect with the love and support of their entire community. Everything is easier when we have strong relationships to lean on and lift us up. This week’s gratitude story comes from Pamela, who wanted to do something special for her daughter after the wedding and contacted Tribute to surprise her daughter with something special. Watch the magic that ensues…

Pamela (Brenna’s Mom): This was a tribute from their wedding party, to add to the many wonderful memories this journey created.

What is your favorite thing about this person?

Pamela ( My daughter and new son-in-law are a pleasure to be around – they compliment each other so well, and know how to laugh with each other. They are able to key in on each other’s feelings, and provide strength and extra love when needed. I know that Kris will be there for my daughter, and that provides me with great comfort – knowing that I will not have to worry about her future. I enjoy being with them, and creating special memories.

What were the circumstances when they received their Tribute? (ie. Where, When, How?)

Pamela: Thanksgiving Day, 2016, with members of the wedding party. I presented the USB to them and we watched it together.

Pamela: Laughter, tears and smiles – joy!

Please ask the Tribute recipient how it made him/her feel to receive their Tribute.

Pamela: It was very sweet and made us feel loved by everyone that you would take the time to give us such a heartfelt message.
