Our three-day wedding, a small gathering of forty of our most near and dear friends, was magical. We spent eighteen months meticulously planning our gathering, from the welcome dinner, to our wedding celebration in a meadow, to the farewell brunch on a croquet lawn. Our intention was to fill those days with intimacy, connection, and purpose. Our guests were not merely spectators, but meaningful participants throughout, and they left feeling fulfilled. So needless to say, we were well pleased with ourselves. Mission accomplished! Except for one thing . . .

All that planning made it possible for everyone to stay present and participate fully, and the easygoing pace of the weekend and wonderful group of people made room for spontaneity. 

One of the most beautiful and unexpected moments of the day? My dad’s toast. And while I remember how deeply his words moved me, I regret to say that I have zero record of them.

Heirloom Guest booksOne of the most beautiful and unexpected moments of the day? My dad’s toast. I’m sure many of you would say a sweet father-of-the-bride toast is to be expected, but my dad… let’s just say he is a bit of a character. He always manages to keep us on our toes. So when he stood up and delivered the most beautiful, thoughtful toast my husband and I had ever heard, we were simply blown away. And while I remember how deeply his words moved me, I regret to say that I have zero record of them. No video, no handwritten notes — nothing.

Sadly, his words were not the only ones to slip through our fingers. Our guests said so many kind, wise, heartfelt things to us throughout the celebration, and  we missed a step in our planning process: a way to capture them. This isn’t on most wedding planning checklists, but it’s so important.  I wish we could revisit their well wishes and advice on our anniversary celebrations, to lift ourselves up with our guests’ faith and support, or simply to take a moment of reflection and gratitude for the people in our life.

So, when I set out to create a guest book, I had that regret in mind. I didn’t want other couples to leave their wedding day saying…
