nerissa + matt..

The world is a funny place sometimes.. Nerissa & Matt were married in Brisbane, but they’ve been living in Melbourne for a while.. Their wedding was lovely, & I don’t mean lovely-nice, I mean lovely-completely full of love..  maybe I should have said ‘loveful’, but let’s face it, that doesn’t sound as cool..  Everyone smiles at their wedding, & smiling is good for you, but Nerissa has a smile that can cut down trees (sustainable, fast growing plantation trees)..  With great power comes great responsibility, & with a smile like hers, Nerissa has learned to control her powers, so when she smiles you can feel the warmth & power in relative safety – it’s like suddenly opening your curtains on a bright sunny morning..

Obviously Matt & Nerissa had to be careful when getting together, because their happiness powers are amplified when they’re together..  Anyone that went to their wedding had to wear suits made of lead**

So yes, the world is a funny place – last week while we were in Melbourne, crossing the road, I was almost blinded again by Nerissa’s smile..  while reaching into my bag for my handy welding goggles, we had a nice little chat, hugs, kisses, laughs, & yes.. the very next blog post in the queue? Nerissa & Matt..

** (suits may or may not have been made of actual lead)
