We sat on Lyndsi Shae’s bed and while she organized her closet, she told me about him. About their history, the letters she was writing him, the things she loved about him, but also the specks of confusion that made her wonder how things would turn out. We’d have conversations like this a lot, because our lives were big and up in the air and lots of times we just wondered how things would end up. We wondered over greasy grilled cheese when I had broken up with Jared. We wondered while we looked for apartments and couldn’t feel right about any of them, singing along to Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, free and trying to love our lives in the middle of all the unknowns.
I love this woman, in so many more words than I can say here. I’ve felt so much with her. She has a quiet way of letting you be safe, to open up and think and feel, to stand up and acknowledge how hugenormous your revelations and talents and life mission are. Our hearts are wild and our souls are nourished by writing and singing gospel music at the top of our lungs.
So I knew that whatever man ended up lucky enough to live out life and eternity with this amazing woman would not be there by luck at all, but because he fit her perfectly. And Ken just does. Six years brimming with letters, a couple missions, walking barefoot together, a few other relationships, and their deep friendship led them to the point of knowing how wonderful they were and would be together. And the biggest together starts on June 16th.
Meet Lyndsi Shae and Ken, two of the most soulful, loving, open-hearted people to grace the world with their love.
Lyndsi Shae, have I ever told you properly how incredibly beautiful you are?
Lyndsi Shae and Ken, it was so magical to spend the afternoon with the two of you. I am so thrilled for your wedding! So much love.
