The story of our wedding
My husband and I were good friends in high school. We bonded over similar music and were always playing basketball. He asked me to prom senior year and ever since then we have been together. We have been together almost ten years now and have always encouraged one another to pursue our wildest dreams. For me that meant moving to New York City to become a full-time fashion model. We had a long-distance relationship for four years straight, and he would drive to and from to NYC every weekend, about 420 miles to be together for two days. Even when I suggested he take a weekend off he would surprise me anyway.
He proposed to me in Disney World in October 2018. It was his first time there and we are huge Disney lovers, so it was so exciting being apart of his first experience. I thought I would have expected when he was going to propose but the moment, he did it was perfect, and he definitely surprised me. I should have caught on when he was all about taking pictures and I was thrown off when he asked the photographer to take one more so our special moment could be captured. Of course, I said yes to marrying my best friend. In 2019 we adopted a puppy, Chance. In 2020 I moved back to New England and we purchased a home for us and Chance.
We had a beautiful rustic wedding in September 2020. Planning a Covid wedding was not easy but we made the best of it. We reminded ourselves that either way our special day would be about celebrating our love and to reflect on all our amazing years together, even being lucky enough to have each other to miss for those four years. Our day was so special I constantly replay the night over and over in my head. It was amazing be able to safely celebrate with all of our loved ones after not seeing many of them for so long due to the pandemic. We had so many friends and family still talking about what an amazing night they had at our wedding up until the holidays, and how much they needed something to celebrate after such a hard year. We are so gratful for the magical day we had and we had the betsz vendors to help make our day happen.
